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

After a lovely day of touring the Amalfi Coast, our driver brought us to this town and we had a few moments to walk around. We stumbled upon this hidden gem! We were looking at it, deciding if we should wander the grounds, and a very kind woman came out of the office. She said "free entrance" and handed us... More

There is a small museum with a collection of Amphora and old coins. The villa itself has a pool with lots of goldfish, It looks as though it was more of a warehouse than a villa, but because my Italian is non existant I wasn't able to read much of the documentation

As everything was written and explained in Italian - we couldn't understand a word. The site was right in front of our hotel - spent 5 minutes and left. Wish we spoke to language - would like to have know more! Care taker was friendly but poke very little italian...

Staff are friendly, It's free to enter, great if you like anything Roman and you can get some good images if you're into photography. P.S. they have information sheets in English.

The Villa Romana has only been properly excavated in the second half of the 20th Century. It was originally built in the first century at sea level but over the centuries had finished well below ground level. It has only been possible to rescue part of the structure because of past town developments. What remains gives a good idea of... More

The Roman ruins here are fairly interesting but hardly any attention has been made to make the most of them, they look as if there is nobody looking after the site or trying to make the place interesting to tourists. It is free to view, and was situated behind our hotel, but if we had travelled to Minori especially for... More

It's still being excavated, so it's exciting that they are finding new bits all the time. It's free! The locals are really proud of it and want tourists to come and see it.
