Scavi di Oplontis, Torre Annunziata

(4.7/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful villa attributed to the wife of Nero. In many environments the frescoes have maintained the original colors, on a wall of the triclinium there is a painting from which it was created the famous cassata oplontina. The visit you can do alone or with your guide in any language. It is easy thanks to the Vesuviana. The ticket price is low. There are beautiful mosaics and a large pool.

  • Charming place where you can see how the Roman civilization is so far unsurpassed. Not very busy so the visit is relaxing. Beautiful frescoes.

  • Apparently connect the excavation all at 2 pm. A walk through a gore area, no parking ... This may be better!
