A grand ancient Roman villa used by Emperor Nero's wife, it was both destroyed and preserved by the eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD.There were so many rooms full of amazing frescoes. We spent a little over an hour there, and maybe saw 2-3...More

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

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

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.
