Discover Stabiae and Oplonti, an archaeological walk

Discover Stabiae and Oplonti. A real archaeological walk. Currently, Villa San Marco and Villa Arianna are exceptional reminders of Roman life. Villa San Marco, named after a chapel that stood nearby, is located in a hilly area of Castellamare di Stabia. It was the first villa to be explored in Bourbon times. At the time of the eruption in 79 AD, the villa was undergoing restoration due to damage caused by a previous earthquake. The villa belongs to the category of urban residential villas. Villa Arianna belongs to the same category as Villa San Marco. It is part of the archaeological complex of Stabia, which is the ancient name of the settlement in the inner part of the Gulf of Naples. In addition, you can visit “La Reggia di Quisisana,” a historic residence located in the hilly area of Castellammare di Stabia.

Visit the “Oplonti” and “Poppaea villa”

The city of Torre Annunziata, once known as “Oplonti“, was formerly a suburb of Pompeii. Oplonti was also destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. In this city, a villa possibly belonging to Poppaea Sabina, second wife of Emperor Nero, was found. This place deserves a thorough visit because it is one of the best preserved examples of a Roman villa. After several restorations, the villa offers a remarkable impact, because of the interior decorations and the beauty of the landscape. In fact, it had nothing to envy the imperial residences. The decorative series of sculptures and beautiful frescoes is extraordinary. As you can tell, there are many reasons that make this walk, an impressive experience.
