  • Archaeological site which is located in the Centre of Torre Annunziata. The site is preserved very well and although small is very impressive especially for how ancient tells the nobility. Amazing storage rooms and paintings. Downside the parking difficulties and the few signs that make it a destination for a few

  • The fame of Pompeii and Herculaneum makes sites like the Oplontis pass completely unnoticed. To the be in a zone not tourist the Villa of Poppaea, the spouse of Nero, offers a visit quiet and pleasant. Their degree of conservation is amazing ranging from a swimming pool to paintings from Pompeian style. A must-see.
