It was so incredible to walk through the ancient ruins of Pompei. To see how the people lived then and how they died was incredible. Be prepared for a lot of walking, especially on uneven terrain. Bring water because it can be very hot. Enjoy...More

Wonderful to walk around and let your imagination free. Hardly anybody there and a miniscule amount of information available. Nonetheless definitely worth finding with the satnav and parking up. The villa is in a very large hole in the ground with on going archaeological work...More

Torre Annunziata is where you will find the roman villa Oplontis. It is situated in not one of the best areas of Naples but well worth a visit. It is quite well preserved and we were amazed to find what would have been an "Olympic"...More

We went to Pompeii, then ercolano, then the museum in Naples, then Oplontis. This place is just stunning compared to the rest. Very well preserved and reconstructed with care to give a real insight into what it was like to live in. Also very quiet,...More

The location of the villa is odd as it was a luxury seaside villa in its prime but now it is to be found in a hole in the ground surrounded by poor quality housing. However once you go down and look around you can...More

On our first trip to Pompeii we missed this out, thank goodness we decided to go on our second trip, this is fantastic. A very grand single villa, this is as good as it gets for the Roman rich and famous. Built for Nero's second...More

Don't know why I'm reviewing this magnificent Roman seaside villa, because it will be ruined if too many people know about it, (just look at Pompeii to know that)but if you promise not to let the cat out of the bag I'd say go here...More

We were told about this by our guide to Pompeii - Giada at Lello & Co. And what a treat it is! It looks small, but just goes on and on! Mosaic floors which show signs of the earthquake 17 years before Vesuvius blew, kitchens,...More

We came early with a medium-sized group. That was wise, since some of the painted walls and frescoes are best enjoyed up close and with relaxed viewing pace. Later on our tour, several large groups arrived and parts of the site became a bit crowded....More

Very interesting place, completely out of the way but definitely worth the visit. Adds to the history of pompei and seeing this pompei and herculaneum you get to see the whole picture.

I would agree that you can manage without a guide, although you might be able to arrange one through the shore excursions desk on the ship (assuming you are on a cruise). I would agree with KTGP - the Circumvesuviana train... More

If you are at the Naples' port, the best way is to take the train on the Circumvesuviana (name of the train line) from either Porta Nolana or Garibaldi stations to Torre Annunziata - the villa is about 5-10 mins walk away.
