MARTA - Museo ARcheologico nazionale di TAranto

Recommended
The collections exhibited in the museum evoke the role played by Taranto, under Greek domination from the 7C to the 3C BC. You should not miss the superb Poseidon, a locally produced bronze dating from the 6C BC, found in Ugento (some state with conviction that it is in fact Zeus), a remarkable series of ceramics and an exceptional collection of gold jewellery dating back to the Hellenistic period.
