A Free Gem

It's not very big but a nice place to cool off, especially if you see it before Pompeii, and it's free!

This is a small but fascinating museum with a good collection of amphora. Outside the villa itself is surprisingly large and interesting to walk around. Take a little time and visit this museum. When you've seen the setting of this town you will not be surprised to learn the Romans spotted it's beauty long ago and built a holiday villa... More

We have been to these ruins several times. Although small it is well worth a visit and although the staff cannot speak English they are very helpful - so try and use some Italian! It just adds another interest to Minori that other towns do not have - A well worth find

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.

I like this roman villa in minori because there you can really understand how ancient latin lived and passed their time.

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
