We enjoyed exploring Pompeii. Such a large space. We used a self guided tour and app. It was nice to go at our own pace. Some of the detail was lacking but perfect for our family. Our son enjoyed jumping from stone to stone on the path. Allow at least 3 hours to explore.

Don't be put off by the thought - it's a very well laid out impressive villa showing what life was like before the time the land was reclaimed. Very impressive and the fact you can walk around the rooms is excellent.

Really nice visit lf the villas, a bit dificult to find, but diferent to the big complexes of Pompei or Ercularum. One have te impreson to be transportes in to the year 74 and walk alone trough the streets.

These two Stabiae villas are outstanding and while not on the usual tourist track, it is more than worthwhile seeking them out. Both casualties of the 79AD eruption of Mt Vesuvius only 16 kilometres away, the volcano is highly visible from each villa. With some ruins the imagination gets a work out, with trying to envisage what buildings may have... More

Everyone has pretty much covered everything about the two sites in here. They are very correct in that you can pretty much be alone at the properties and wander round and take in the atmosphere and views which is sometimes hard to do when there's lots of people milling around. In that respect you can sometimes get the eerie feeling... More

We visited 2 villas discovered as recently as the 50s. Virtually nobody there and free entry. Two magnificent villas which once stood on the sea front but have since be raised by earth movements to be high up commanding great views all the way to Vesuvius and beyond. Wonderful original wall painting to more than match those at Pompeii and... More
