A brilliantly preserved villa -- though more of a palace. Stunning frescoes, a large swimming pool, beautiful spaces.

This site is sublime. It is compact enough to comfortably explore it all in a few hours. It has some brilliant well-preserved wall paintings and there is a lot to see without being overwhelmed. It is shady and quiet (most visitors stick to Pompeii and...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

We were charged €5.50 each to enter the villa only then to be told unapologetically that not only was there no audioguide, there were only 'plans' of the villa available in Spanish and German. We were advised that we could download a 'plan' on our...More

We went to the oplontis after Pompeii and I really enjoyed it. We paid an extra euro with the Pompeii ticket to get access to this villa. It's a big villa about 5-6 km away from Pompeii, about maybe 5% the size of Pompeii so...More

If you are interested in seeing a ruin, but don't want to fight the crowds and the hot sun in Pompeii, this is a great option. Beautifully unearthed, you can see this in less that an hour, so you can get a sense without spending...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
