Archiepiscopal Museum

The Archiepiscopal Museum is located on the first and second floor of the Archiepiscopal Palace. Its collections consist of numerous artworks that belonged to the ancient city cathedral and to other buildings now demolished. The most interesting piece is the ivory throne of Maximian, one of the most famous carved ivory works of all times executed in the 6th century by Byzantine artists.

The Archiepiscopal Museum hosts the St. Andrew's Chapel too, an early Christian oratory with Greek cross plan built between 494 and 519 AD and decorated with wonderful mosaics.
