History and Unique Atmosphere: Oplontis is renowned for its Villa di Poppea, an aristocratic residence buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. This villa, attributed to Nero's wife, Poppea Sabina, is an archaeological treasure with extraordinarily well-preserved frescoes and an atmosphere that exudes elegance and luxury.

The Life of the Ancient Inhabitants: Imagine walking through the elegant gardens of Oplontis, embellished with fountains and statues, as the ancient Romans did.

Studies and excavations: Archaeologists have dedicated years of research to unlock the secrets of Oplontis. In-depth studies have revealed details about the social structure, the uses of the different rooms, and the artistic and cultural richness of this unique site.

The Pompeian Outskirts: Among the Vesuvian archaeological sites, buried following the eruption of 79 AD, Oplontis offers unique monumental evidence of the Pompeian outskirts. This complex of buildings, comparable to a city suburb, was discovered starting from the Bourbon period in the modern city of Torre Annunziata. Administratively, Oplontis was subject to the jurisdiction of Pompeii.

Monumental Buildings: The peculiarity of Oplontis lies in the presence of two distinct monumental buildings. Villa A, known as Villa di Poppea, is a grandiose luxurious residential complex. On the other hand, Villa B (by L. Crassius Tertius), currently not open to the public, served as a commercial center focused on the processing of agricultural products, especially wine and oil.

How to Book Your Oplontis Experience: To ensure you fully enjoy this experience, you can book tickets online directly from the official Oplontis website: Oplontis – Pompeii Sites. Booking online not only simplifies the process, but also guarantees easy access to the site.
