The place is free and it won't take more than 15 minutes to visit a 1900 years old roman villa. It is quite well preserved with some mosaics. And it is fresh when the sun is hot.

Was staying as my Son was getting Married. The Staff were Great, especially the Reception Girls. only Comment I would make, is that the Restaurant doesn't open till 7-30 am for Breakfast and when you are going out on Trips it doesn't give you enough time to Eat

A small seaside Roman villa discovered in 1954 which is free to visit. There is an exhibition area with exhibits and diagrams labelled in Italian. They do provide factsheets in various languages which explains about the find which was useful to read before walking around. The outside area is open and there are steps to climb down and up again.... More

Only 5 mins from our hotel and we had an hour to kill before going up the coast by boat so decided to pay the villa a visit. Very interesting although a lot of the historical text is in Italian. Free entry and they like you to sign a visitors book. Leave a small donation if you like.

The villa is free to enter and is worth half an hour or so of your time on an overcast afternoon. We did wonder if a small charge might enable the local authority to spruce up the place a little. Maybe add lighting, information, maybe a video screen with information/reconstructions etc on a loop as many places do these days.... More

When we picked Minori to stay in, we had no idea it had a Roman villa! What a lovely surprise! An easy walk behind the shops, really well preserved and so very interesting!

This place was right under our noses and we attempted to go there three times before we finally got in...the address leads you to a gate with the sign, but it was always locked. We finally asked a shopkeeper and they advised us to go around the block and that's where we located the museum and entry to the ruins.... More

What a welcome surprise during our drive along the Amalfi Coast. Someone suggested we stop hear and we are do glad they did. It was so interesting to wander with a private guide through this perfectly preserved Roman Villa. If you did not know it was there, you would never find this. The entry fee is free, but donations are... More

If you have been to Pompeii then this villa will leave you underwhelmed. I would discourage making the journey to Minori just to see it. The villa itself is poorly maintained and slippery under foot. All the information is in Italian and so the whole visit took us no more than 20 minutes. There is one room, no.6, which has... More

These ruins are very cool and certainly less travelled than those we found in Rome and Pompeii. Our taxi driver told us they were only discovered 50 years ago when I man fell through his floor and found this underneath! Imagine that!
