Scavi di Oplontis, Torre Annunziata

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

  • Nothing to say on the excavations and the villa is beautiful. Unfortunately you do not have an audio guide that might help you understand the beauty of villa di poppea

  • The villa is very large and well preserved, in its entirety, with wonderful frescoes. Beautiful and grandiose swimming pool (60 x 17 m) set in a flowering garden, close to the spa area with locker rooms divided according to sex. Definitely worth a visit. Rita L.

  • The villa of Poppaea Sabina, a UNESCO World Heritage site is an archaeological site of Pompeii to be missed. Situated in Torre Annunziata is of surprising beauty. Perfectly preserved and with amazing frescos, the residential villa inside the baths. With one ticket you can visit three archaeological sites: Oplontis, stabiae and Boscoreale.
