A vast villa with elaborately and richly painted frescoes in vivid reds, blacks and yellows. Impressive olympic size pool in the back garden. Fits well with the sites of Pompeii, Herculaneum and the nearby Roman villas which, although a little harder to access being off...More

We took the train from Sorrento. Compared to Pompeii, this Villa was essentially empty. The frescoes and mosaics were breathtaking. To top it off, we stopped at small deli on our way back to the train for what may have been one of our best...More

We visited here on our way back from Pompei after stumbling across some reviews online of the villa. It neatly ties into the ruins experience, as the villa is very well preserved and much quieter than anywhere else you may visit. We walked around with...More

This is a nice addition to the more famous excavations like Pompeii and Herkulaneum. If you have already seen these, then go to Torre Annunziata. There are almost no other tourists and you feel as if you are the one who discovers this place. Unfortunatelly...More

It’s easy to reach Villa Poppea walking from the Torre Annunziata train station (just two stops before the Pompeii stop). One of the attendants spoke very good English, and was able to answer our questions and you great detail. The villa is quite extensive, and...More

We visited this site on our way back to Naples from Pompeii. It's quite small site, but it's in better condition than the other sites so it's well worth visiting if you're serious about your roman archeology. Not many people there too so you'll get...More

We spoiled ourselves and booked a private car to take us to Pompeii, Herculaneum and Oplontis. This enabled us to be early, rest our feet in between sites and thus walk much more inside the towns. Oplontis is a fantastic place to visit. First you...More

You can visit Oplontis in 30 to 45 minutes, plus 3 minutes walk each way from the Circumvesuviano station, you have to check the train schedule. Pierre
