Amazing experience. We struck gold with a bilingual staff member who gave The Best Tour of all. Written info is all in Italian so this was invaluable. The site includes a farm in a deep excavation pit and a wonderful museum. You'll see household contents...More

You'll need a car to visit this hidden small museum and rustic villa, which is stranded in the middle of a typically scruffy Neapolitan housing estate. Most visitors will be trying to make use of their €22 5 site ticket, and if you're trying to...More

We were the only people, other than staff, in the building. All of the signs and descriptions were in Italian only. We were not able to really appreciate what the exhibits were trying to show as we could not understand them. The staff also only...More

I wanted to see the antiquities found at pompeii especially the scratching dog. I want disappointed it was there but not really a lot else. As we'd purchased a three day pass we thought it was worth a view and it did give an insight...More

We had a 5 site ticket so decided to visit this after Villa Poppea at Oplontis (which was amazing). The museum is excellently presented and very interesting, but in a horrible location, and a tough walk from Boscoreale station. We met another english couple at...More

The antiquarium of Boscoreale was certainly one of the highlights of my trip to the Pompeii area. Being included in the price of the 3 day pass (that allows you to visit Pompeii, Herculaneum, Boscoreale, Villa Poppea and Stabia), visiting it was a no brainer,...More
