  • Much more than expected. It's a wonderful place where to spend half day. Compared to the city of Pompeii, here there are the luxurious villas. They are still very well preserved. Finally It's free!! Really no reason to explain why this is so undervalued. Amazing place, highly suggested.
  • Stunningly preserved Roman Villa... I've seen an awful lot of archaeology in my time, but Stabia frankly blew me away. The site is set out of the way, off the main Road between Naples and the Amalfi Peninsula. It's signposted poorly, so you'll need to be careful not to miss it. The parking lot is covered, and gives no indication of belonging to an archaeological site. If you're sitting in your car, wondering if you've taken a wrong turn, you've made it to Stabia. To call this villa expansive would be a gross understatement. It's massive, and incredibly well preserved. From the massive entrance hall, to the courtyard with its huge pool, and the ornate mausoleum, this is easily one of the most amazing Roman-Era sites I've ever visited. And what's more, it's basically a forgotten gem that gets few annual visitors. In the three hours I spent photographing Stabia, I encountered four other visitors. This fact, coupled with the phenomenal weather, made my visit a memorable one. If you're in the area to see Pompeii, be sure to set some time aside to tour this villa.
  • Villa Arianna and idleness of the ancients. One of the residential structures of Roman times can be visited at Castellammare di Stabia. Villa Arianna is one of Roman villas that are part of the archaeological site of Stabiae, today's Castellammare di Stabia, province of Naples, a few kilometres from the famous Pompeii. The villa is located in a lovely location on the hill overlooking the modern town of Varano in the city. The most famous ancient Stabiae, along with Pompeii and Herculaneum was buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 a.d. unearthed, along with other five villas, the excavations initiated by Charles of Bourbon on 7 June 1749, was later buried and remained so until the mid-1900 's, when thanks to the artwork of Libero D'Orsi, principal of a middle school town Villa returned to the light. Villa Arianna, a beautiful villa otium, takes its name from the fresco of the triclinium depicting Ariadne abandoned by Theseus on the island of Naxos. The Villa has a complex plan result of successive enlargements; connected to the plain below with tunnels and ramps, is divided into four parts: atrium and adjacent rooms, (late Republican age), service rooms and baths of the Augustan age, the age of Nero triclinium environments and finally a peristyle, probably used as a gym, Flavian age. Every Sunday in January at 10.30 a.m. to 13.00 tours both to Villa Arianna is in Villa San Marco, by volunteers to Lega ambiente Circle Woodwardia of Castellammare di Stabia excavations are open daily from 9.00 to 18.00 with free admission.
