The archaeological museum of Anzio is located in the splendid rooms of Villa Adele, built in the seventeenth century during the rebirth of Anzio sought by Pope Innocent XII as a summer residence centre for cardinals and prelates.

The rooms of the museum tell the story of this area and of all its glory during the Republic and Imperial eras of Rome.

Among the most interesting findings there are some frescoes from the Imperial Villa begun by Augustus and made famous by Nero.
