This littel gem was only rediscovers in the 50's. It is free but for a small tip the guide is happy to point out some interesting wall art.

Very interesting ruins, in quite good condition, right in the middle of residential Minori. Historically important - Tiberius was there. Definitely worth a visit.

These ruins are interesting and worth a visit, but due to being built in a damp location the original frescoes have been significantly damaged or have disintegrated. There are still many artifacts to view.

Smack in the middle of Minori sit the remains of what must have been a huge mansion belonging to a powerful Roman tycoon whose name and station remain totally unknown.

Very interesting stuff. A small museum and an interesting villa. Not a lot of information but a friendly lady indicating where to go and what to look at. My son and I enjoyed the trip back in time.

Here is a wonderfully excavated and restored Roman villa site right here in Minori. Smack in the middle of a quaint little town lies this relic of antiquity the Villa Romana!
