This villa is unbelievable. The frescos, the rooms, the whole thing. Very easy to get to off Circumvesuviana and really worth visiting. You get entry to here and Villa Regina at Boscoreale. Only problem was Villa Regina was shut for work.
While Pompei is the most well known worldwide we find this “little” villa more interesting for many reasons
- less tourists trying to take the most original photos
- very well preserved
- gives a very good idea of how the (wealthy) Romans lived and...More
Well worth a visit for another view of Roman culture as this is nearly complete.
Steep steps down into it and basic facilities but worth a look nevertheless to complete the Vesuvian eruption experience.
This place should be better known. It's more of a palace than a villa, and is extremely well preserved. Numerous frescoes still in place (not all visible because access to some rooms is denied -- the best can be seen, though) some reminiscent of Dutch/Flemish...More
We visited this villa not expecting very much, but were truly surprised by the quality of the villa. It looks small, but it is quite large as you travel through the building. As this is off the beaten track (only 2 mins from the Via...More
I am surprised that this historic place is not advertised more.
Like Pompeii and Herculenium this place is amazing and so well preserved and not too many visitors. Thus makes it easy to walk around.
Easy to find when you take the local train and...More
What a special place! We were so lucky to visit with so few people, we found ourselves wandering through time, we were able to stop and look, retrace our steps and really appreciate this delightful villa. The staff were friendly and helpful, even allowing a...More
Unlike in Herculaneum and Pompeii, very few visitors visit the Villa Oplontis, even though the building is in a better state of conservation than most of the ruins in the former two places. The Villa is comprised of more than 30 rooms which are beautifully...More
I didn't think this would add so much to our experience of Pompeii and Herculaneum, but it did. We were headed took Vesuvius, but the clouds meant we headed here before going to Herculaneum and I so grateful we did.
The Villa has been meticulously...More

We went to Oplontis by coach so I can't help with the train station. But it is definitely worth a trip. Very close to Herculaneum.obvuously Amy h smaller site as it is just a villa and gardens. I really liked the bright mosaics and the quietness. The gardens are being replanted with plants, trees and shrubs similar to what may have been there at the time of Vesuvius' eruption.

I would agree that you can manage without a guide, although you might be able to arrange one through the shore excursions desk on the ship (assuming you are on a cruise). I would agree with KTGP - the Circumvesuviana train... More
I would agree that you can manage without a guide, although you might be able to arrange one through the shore excursions desk on the ship (assuming you are on a cruise). I would agree with KTGP - the Circumvesuviana train takes you straight there and the ruins are just downhill from the station - there is a sign pointing the way as you leave the station. There is quite a long flight of steps down to the ruins, but the steps are quite gentle.
If you are at the Naples' port, the best way is to take the train on the Circumvesuviana (name of the train line) from either Porta Nolana or Garibaldi stations to Torre Annunziata - the villa is about 5-10 mins walk away.
