It was so interesting to be able to walk through these villas and see how the wealthy Romans lived. You can't actually do that in Pompeii. Yes, a caretaker did guide us but he showed us things that we might not have seen. My husband knows some Spanish and was able to understand a lot of things he said. We decided at the end of the "tour" that he probably wanted to keep an eye on the tourists so that walls and other items weren't vandalized. Most amazing was a little square "pool" that was built next to the kitchen where live fish were kept until needed for a meal. My husband, a former archeologist, felt that Stabia was actually more interesting than Pompeii.
