Not sure how we missed this striking villa. Easy to get to from the circumvesuviana train at stop Torre Annunziata. A short walk to this stunning villa purported to be Nero’s wife’s. The swimming pool is sixty meters and the frescoes are colourful and in...More

We had researched this thoroughly before travelling on the Circumversuviana to Torre Annunziata, and downloaded the guide to a phone, as this had been advised by others, but we were given an excellent printed guide and map without asking – some other visitors were not....More

It was very hot, heat warning so thought Pompei/Herculaneum was not a good idea, no shade, lots of people and this place had been recommended. So glad we went, you can walk in a villa, get up close to the frescos. Loved it.

We booked a small tour group for a shore excursion from a cruise and was very impressed with Clelia. We only had 7 in our group and didn’t have the issues of a large group. You can just join a group near the gates, but...More

This was such a find, more compact than Pompeii. It is well worth getting here early in the day as for us it was so quiet you could imagine the hustle and bustle of the villa in full roman swing... Be watchful for the nooks...More

We booked a ticket to Pompeï including a ticket to Oplontis, which we did not know to be honest. Arriving at Villa Poppaea, we met Salvatore and decided to let him guide us (ie a family of 5 including 3 teenage sons). This was an...More

Very interesting place to visit & they are still excavating and cleaning the lava and ashes etc off a lot of the flooring tiles . You can imagine the splendour of the villa in it's best time .

These ruins have been dug up in the 1960´s from under ashes, mud and humus of 8 to 10 meters. As the cover has been more sensitive than that in Pompeij, the frescos have kept their colors even better than in Pompeij. The villa has...More

We purposely took the time to visit Oplonti Villa de Poppea (the villa of Nero's wife Poppea) after visiting Herculaneum and were so glad we did. As others have noted, the site is quiet and nearly empty. During our hour there, we saw probably fewer...More

I am originally from this area and as a result, find Villa Poppea a precious oasis of tranquillity, in a rather chaotic but nevertheless fascinating city. Villa Poppea is a wealth of archaeological findings. From the architectural details to the decorations, it speaks out opulence...More

I think the previous answer refers to another site as there are no facilities at Oplontis. That said do not let this put you off as it is well worth the detour and there are few crowds or tour parties. We spent an entire... More
