Overview
Explore the ruins of Oplonti, destroyed by the same volcanic eruption that buried Pompeii and Herculaneum, and discover the well-preserved Villa of Poppaea, thought to have belonged to the wife of Emperor Nero.
What to Expect
This private tour of Oplonti is ideal for those who have already been to the ancient ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. It will complete your vision of the Roman world, and give you a greater understanding of how aristocrats from Rome enjoyed life around the Bay of Naples two millenia ago.

The Poppaea Villa was excavated recently and is better preserved than any site in Pompeii. It was most probably inhabitated by Poppaea Sabina Minore, who married Emperor Nero.

Start with an overview from above. Then, walk down into the excavations to get a closer look at the volcanic debris that buried the Bay of Naples in 79 AD. Enter the main atrium of the villa from the rear gardens, and notice how the decorations and buildings were desigend to give an illusion of space and depth.

Peek into the kitchen and bathhouse to admire beautiful frescoes, and see the bedrooms offering lovely sea views. Discover where the slaves slept, worked, and prayed. Then, visit the spectacular pool and dining rooms.
