This villa is a great place to visit as it's a bit of a secret. There are few visitors at any one time which is a shame but also keeps it easy to access and the guides are more than willing to spend as much...More

We luckily visited both Villa’s; this one is the most impressive and also huge villa. Entrance is free, very few visitors. We got a ride from our b&b owner, what was handy, because it is outside the town and uphill. After the visit it was...More

Everybody heard of Pompeii, and millions visiting it. Not to compare - but this villa was built more of less in the same age (also destroyed) -but excavated and even restored in a nice way. On the hills above CASTELLAMARE DI STABIA -definitely worth the...More

Villa San Marco was quite a surprise, a lovely little Romad Villa tucked away almost out of sight, very quiet when we visited, no charge for entry and a nice little information booklet provided for free. Certainly worth a detour if you are close by....More

A visit to Villa San Marco should be included with a visit to the slightly more remote Villa Arianna. Give yourself a comfortable day to view them, especially if you're relying on walking from the train station. The climb uphill to the villas will take...More

This ancient villa is hidden away south of Pompei but is well worth the visit. It is free to visit and yet has good information boards and a helpful English leaflet letting you know what you are seeing. Fascinating frescoes abound and yet this place...More

If you can get here do go. The villa must have been amazing, really interesting. Only three of us in there and as an added bonus it's free.
