Located at sea level, the “Galerie des Antiques” is a collection of life-size casts of the finest classical Grecian statues, such as the famous Belvedere Apollo, the Venus de Milo and the Discobolus, the originals of which are in Rome, Florence, Naples and the Louvre museum.

Visitors can see statues of the ancient gods and goddesses who played such an important part in Greek civilisation: Aphrodite, Athena, Artemis, Apollo and Ares.

Classic Greek art is always a kind of shock to witness, perfect beauty, the age of impeccability. Great series and thanks a lot for sharing!
