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

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.)

The level of preservation and restoration at this site is exceptional. The colours of the frescoes are vibrant. The ability to walk from room to room, gives the visitor a real sense of the opulence and grandeur of this imperial household. I got a real...More

Don't go to Pompeii without also visiting the Villa Oplontis. This huge complex was possibly owned by one of Nero's wives, and it is certainly built on an imperial scale. The walls are covered in frescos which you can study at close range. I particularly...More

We visited Herculaneum and Pompeii and this place was even more stunning with an enormous villa that gives you a real impression of the opulence of the rich in first century roman culture. Don’t miss this!

This villa is a great place to visit, to supplement visits to Pompeii and Herculaneum. It is reminiscent of many of the villas in each of the cities: but this is the palatial version. Many features are similar - the atrium, the cloistered gardens -...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... More

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.
