4.7
#2 of 8 in Things to do in Torre Annunziata
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.

    If you are interested in seeing a ruin, but don't want to fight the crowds and the hot sun in Pompeii, this is a great option. Beautifully unearthed, you can see this in less that an hour, so you can ...  more »

    If Pompeii is superb this Villa Poppaea also. Indeed, the decorations, the architecture, the floors speak a language more refined and interesting. Even the construction technique is more accurate. We are faced with an Imperial Palace of ancient Rome as in Pompeii are not seen. So don't forget to go and oplontis! Is situated in Torre Annunziata (5 minutes from Pompeii): an obligatory between Pompeii and Herculaneum. Equip yourself with a good guide first and then prepare our eyes and hearts to a great experience.
