Amazed to find so much history literally yards from the hotel. The staff were very informative and very proud of this fantastic historical asset (be sure to visit the lower part of the villa!)

We stumbled across this ruin when looking for a fruit shop. Entry is by donation. A great array of different shaped amphorae used for transporting various products. The villa layout is well preserved, and some frescoes and original floor mosaics are intact. Well worth a visit.

Found the Antiquarium by chance, So pleased that we did. Roman villa unearthed in the 1950s dating back to the 1st century. Lots of roman artifacts on show, not just from villa but from all around the area. Free entry and a very pleasant way to spend our time.

This a free entry, so definitely worth a vsit. Only part of the villa has been excavated and it's a little down at heel compared with what's on show at the well known sites. There's an interesting dining room and some hydraulic remains, but, unless you are a classics enthusiast (as I am) you may be a little underwhelmed. But... More

The site is located right next to the western SITA stop in Minori. It is free - but the gentleman who mans the museum takes you on a guided tour of the site - so we tipped him. There is a very small museum. Then the gentleman took us on a quick tour of the site. It was interesting to... More

Aside from the current dig in Positano, Minori possesses the clearest and best example of a Roman villa on the Amalfi Coast. This is a WOW place!. Its majestic, seaside and boasts an extraordinary display of a bull's head in the bathing area. There are vases,vessels and coins from this era as well. the villa has not fully been uncovered....

A 'must see'. This is like a mini Pompei without all the tourist. There is no admission fee. We were the only 2 in the place and a gentleman at the Museum gave us a private guided tour. We were not hurried and he gave us the history and answered our questions. A nice couple of hours. Since there was... More
