ArchExperience (IT)

The goal is to intrigue and bring as many people as possible into the world of archeology and prehistoric techniques.

A place of history, culture, art, biodiversity, food and wine, that allow you to live the incredible nature, to visit rock art parks, Roman sites and castles, a place that contains the human adventure from prehistoric times to the present day in a few kilometers. Inspired by this context, the founders of ArchExperience offer a wide range of activities to bring the general public closer to Prehistory, in a dynamic and immersive way.
