We visited here on our way back from Pompei after stumbling across some reviews online of the villa. It neatly ties into the ruins experience, as the villa is very well preserved and much quieter than anywhere else you may visit. We walked around with...More

This is a nice addition to the more famous excavations like Pompeii and Herkulaneum. If you have already seen these, then go to Torre Annunziata. There are almost no other tourists and you feel as if you are the one who discovers this place. Unfortunatelly...More

We were charged €5.50 each to enter the villa only then to be told unapologetically that not only was there no audioguide, there were only 'plans' of the villa available in Spanish and German. We were advised that we could download a 'plan' on our...More

We visited having purchased the triple site ticket at Pompeii and it was very well worth both the extra euro and the train journey. We arrived just as a tour group was starting round but there was plenty of space to enjoy our visit without...More

You can visit Oplontis in 30 to 45 minutes, plus 3 minutes walk each way from the Circumvesuviano station, you have to check the train schedule. Pierre
