Oplontis and Poppea’s Villa
Less known as archaeological site, compared to Pompeii, is the Poppea’s Villa. Erected in Oplontis under the slopes of Vesuvius, it still maintains the charm of the splendor of Imperial Rome.
The main monument, the only one that can be visited, is the villa of Poppea inserted among the assets that UNESCO has defined as “World Heritage”. A magnificent residential building from the mid-1st century BC, enlarged during the Imperial era, was being restored during the eruption. It is attributed to Poppaea Sabina, second wife of Emperor Nerone, but in any case falling within the patrimony of the imperial family.
Naples & Amalfi in one day
Amalfi is patchwork of flat and domed roofs and vine-covered stairways tumbling down to meet the gentle curve of the beach. Amalfi is the main town of the coast on which it is located, named Costiera Amalfitana(Amalfi Coast) and is included in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The Amalfy Coast is a postcard of little cities like positano and Sorrento.
