Scavi di Oplontis, Torre Annunziata

(380+ reviews on the web)
Ruin Tourist Spot
Explore a villa frozen in time by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius when you visit Scavi di Oplontis. See preserved murals and paintings on the walls, as well as intricate tiles and mosaics on the floor. Tour the gardens, see ruins and artifacts, and view the remains of people caught in the eruption and petrified in ash. Though much smaller than Pompeii or Herculaneum, this site will give you a good idea of how the upper class of Roman society lived, as well as a more intimate view of the architecture and style of their homes. Put Scavi di Oplontis and other Torre Annunziata attractions into our Torre Annunziata trip generator, and watch your holiday take shape.
