Civico Museo Archeologico "Giovanni Patroni"

Fodor's Review

The small archaeological museum in the center of Pula, on schedule to reopen by the end of 2015, houses excavations of an ancient site at Nora, developed between 7th century BC and AD 8. The museum explores the area's colonization from Arab, Phoenician, Punic, and Roman times and the founding of the oldest town in Sardinia. A guided tour is included in the price to see amphoras, anchors, pottery, and inscribed stones. The collection's highlight is gold foil with heads of "gorgoneion"—it was uncovered in Nora's necropolis and is used as the museum's logo.
