The Campania region
The area is particularly fruitful for tourism, both Italians and foreigners spend vacations in the province. Pompeii, the excavated Roman city which was destroyed by Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD is among the most popular destinations in all of Italy.
Three islands in the Gulf of Naples are also prominent destinations; Ischia, Procida, part of the Phlegrean Islands, and Capri. Together they are also known as the Campanian Archipelago. On Capri, there is the famous Blue Grotto; inside the grotto the sea seems to be lit from underwater, it is a magnificent blue colour, hence its name.
The Sorrentine Peninsula (and its main town Sorrento) has long being a popular destination for tourism, it is well known for the drink Limoncello and its luxurious sea cliffs. It is rich with villas, castles, guard towers, churches, and in Vico Equense ancient farmhouses.
Oplontis was a town near Pompeii, in the Roman Empire. On August 24, AD 79, the eruption of Mount Vesuvius buried it under a deep layer of ash. It is today the location of the Villa Poppaea, the villa possibly associated with the second wife of Emperor Nero,which continues to be excavated was excavated in the mid-20th century and is open to the public.
A second villa, the Villa of L. Crassius Tertius, was discovered in 1974, 300 metres east of the Villa of Poppaea, during the construction of a school. It was named following the finding of a bronze seal bearing Crassius' name.
The name "Oplontis" most likely refers to the baths in the area of Oncino, but today the name commonly covers the group of villas in the middle of the modern town of Torre Annunziata, also known as Torre Nunziata in the local Neapolitan dialect.
A large number of artifacts from Oplontis are preserved in the Naples National Archaeological Museum.
The city of Pompeii is a partially buried Roman town-city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania, in the territory of the comune of Pompei. Along with Herculaneum, Pompeii was partially destroyed and buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79.
Pompeii was lost for nearly 1700 years before its rediscovery in 1748. Since then, its excavation has provided an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of a city during the Pax Romana. Today, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the most popular tourist attractions of Italy.

"Not a pleasant stay"
We put off writing this review as it is difficult to be so negative, but we decided we must advise other travelers of the drawbacks of this property. Finding the flat was a challenge even with the G… More

"Wonderful apartment but in the wrong place!"
The apartment itself was wonderful but I feel the description and photographs do not give a fair representation. The apartment is a rooftop apartment and one has to climb 75 steps to it. The photograp… More

Our first impression of the flat was very bad, because the surrounding area is in such a bad state (industrial area=very noisy at night and early morning). Many of the mentioned amenities were non exi… More

"Convenient location, excellent hosts"
Among the best reasons to stay at this flat is the lovely Ricciardi family. Two days into our 8-day trip, my adult son took ill from a virus acquired during our flight. Neither he or I speak Italian. … More

"An authentic Italian experience"
This is a real Italian apartment in a real Italian location. It is not a 5-star hotel in some posh area of Roma, but an authentic flat in the slightly run down town of Torre Annunziate. Geographically… More
