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.

we visited this remarkable villa and couldn't believe how well preserved it is. its in better condition than anything in Pompeii and almost unknown. do not miss it if you visit this part of the Naples area.

This is just an amazing place to visit, a bit off the beaten track but well worth it. And it’s Free. Unlike Pompeii you can walk round this villa, which is quite intact and into all of the rooms, the frescos are just amazing. There...More
