Stop At: Pompeii Archaeological Park, Porta Marina (via Villa dei Misteri), 80045 Pompeii Italy

Pompeii is the most stunning archaeological site on the Italian Peninsula and one of the most visited. The ruins of Pompeii are an open air museum where visitors can go back in time and discover a city that had been buried in ashes until 1748. Visitors experience the city much as it existed more than 2000 years ago.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Villa di Poppea, Via dei Sepolcri, 80058 Torre Annunziata Italy

Oplontis The Villa Poppaea is a Roman villa situated between Naples and Sorrento which dates from the early Imperial period. The villa is a large structure situated in the Roman town of Oplontis (modern day – Torre Annunziata). It was owned by the Emperor Nero and used by his second wife Poppaea Sabina as her main residence when not in Rome. The frescos decorating the walls are among the best preserved, both in form and in color, of all Imperial Roman frescos. The roof of the building largely survived the eruption thus affording protection from the elements.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Parco Acheologico di Ercolano, Corso Resina, 187, 80056 Ercolano Italy

Herculaneum, the smaller sister of Pompeii, is a destination for lovers of beauty. Visitors to the ancient city have the rare opportunity to see perfectly intact patrician villas. A miracle of preservation where even the wood and ropes of the 2000-year-old city are on display, along with stunning brick work, mosaics, and frescos. The detail with which Herculaneum has been preserved is remarkable considering the violence of the 500 C° volcanic flows which ravaged the city.
