The Museum of Roman Ships: The Nemi Ships were built by the Emperor Caligula during the 1s century AD, in honor of the Egyptian goddess Isis and the goddess Diana, the local patron of the hunt, and they were designed to be a very elaborate floating palace. Is still an interesting site to visit thanks to the many archaeological pieces that were preserved. The ships are represented in model size (1:5 scale) along with many items saved from the fire: including the well-known bronze coating of the beams, the lion heads, a wolf, a panther, jellyfish, iron anchor, a large bronze faucet and pumps.At the end we ‘ll return back to the Hotel !All rates are quoted in Euro.Cash payment required in Euro.Rate includes driver guide for the whole tour.
