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

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

Oplontis, an ancient Roman seaside area within Torre Annunziata, was destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. We visited the ruins of Villa Poppaea, a magnificent structure thought to belong to Nero & used by his wife, Poppaea. The frescoes are magnificent and...More

This place was pretty cool. My favorite part of the area was the old paintings. The guide called them frescas. They are impressive and very old.

This UNESCO heritage is still relatively unknown, allowing quite, calm visits, unlike Pompei. You can reach it by car (A3 Naples-Salerno Motorway, Torre Annunziata Sud Exit) or by train: Circumvesuviana Naples-Sorrento, Torre Annunziata Stop. Entrance fee is 5,50 euro, but if is free for EU...More

This excavation is amazingly well preserved and features an amazing variety of high-quality frescoes and insight into the lives of the patrician class in ancient Rome. It takes 1-2 hours and is well worth the visit. (FWIW, we enjoyed this more than Herculanum.)

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.
