All reviews swimming pool pompeii and herculaneum well worth a visit mosaic floors real sense local train minute walk from the train station wheelchair access hidden gem beautiful frescoes off the beaten track his wife incredible site this place is amazing roman empire follow the signs steep steps
We took a guided tour with an archeologist turned tour guide and I highly recommend it (walks of Italy) the 8nfirnation was great and a lot better that just walking through the ruins Toby your self to save some money. We got to see all...More
The combination of preserved and restored architecture, plus absolutely stunning frescoes make this a wonderful experience. There are five ancient Roman sites in and around Pompeii: Pompeii itself, Herculaneum, the villas at Oplontis (Villa B is closed indefinitely), the villas at Stabia, and the currently...More
We travelled to the Villa Poppea ruins by the Circumvesuviana from Ercolano and visited this exceptionally well preserved villa with frescos, its own bath house and garden. The villa is very large (it belonged to Nero's second wife) and is more extensive than most sites...More
We went to Oplontis after viditing Pompeii and Herculeneum, and were very impressed. You walk between huge rooms, and see wonderful artworks, including frescoes and mosaics, that were preserved very well. It is well worth a visit.
A grand ancient Roman villa used by Emperor Nero's wife, it was both destroyed and preserved by the eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD.There were so many rooms full of amazing frescoes. We spent a little over an hour there, and maybe saw 2-3...More
This villa is unbelievable. The frescos, the rooms, the whole thing. Very easy to get to off Circumvesuviana and really worth visiting. You get entry to here and Villa Regina at Boscoreale. Only problem was Villa Regina was shut for work.
While Pompei is the most well known worldwide we find this “little” villa more interesting for many reasons
- less tourists trying to take the most original photos
- very well preserved
- gives a very good idea of how the (wealthy) Romans lived and...More
Well worth a visit for another view of Roman culture as this is nearly complete.
Steep steps down into it and basic facilities but worth a look nevertheless to complete the Vesuvian eruption experience.
This place should be better known. It's more of a palace than a villa, and is extremely well preserved. Numerous frescoes still in place (not all visible because access to some rooms is denied -- the best can be seen, though) some reminiscent of Dutch/Flemish...More

We went to Oplontis by coach so I can't help with the train station. But it is definitely worth a trip. Very close to Herculaneum.obvuously Amy h smaller site as it is just a villa and gardens. I really liked the bright mosaics and the quietness. The gardens are being replanted with plants, trees and shrubs similar to what may have been there at the time of Vesuvius' eruption.

I would agree that you can manage without a guide, although you might be able to arrange one through the shore excursions desk on the ship (assuming you are on a cruise). I would agree with KTGP - the Circumvesuviana train... More
I would agree that you can manage without a guide, although you might be able to arrange one through the shore excursions desk on the ship (assuming you are on a cruise). I would agree with KTGP - the Circumvesuviana train takes you straight there and the ruins are just downhill from the station - there is a sign pointing the way as you leave the station. There is quite a long flight of steps down to the ruins, but the steps are quite gentle.
If you are at the Naples' port, the best way is to take the train on the Circumvesuviana (name of the train line) from either Porta Nolana or Garibaldi stations to Torre Annunziata - the villa is about 5-10 mins walk away.
