Fodor's Review

Named after local 19th-century medical doctor, Domenico Ridola, who investigated archaeological sites in the surrounding area, the museum highlights his excavations of the remains of Paleolithic and Neolithic settlements, as well as a richly endowed 4th-century-BC tomb. Ridola's finds are on view in the museum, which is housed in the former monastery of Santa Chiara. The collection includes an extensive selection of prehistoric and classical finds, notably Bronze Age implements and beautifully decorated red-figure pottery from Magna Grecia.
