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

Stabia is the most easterly of the 5 sites that can be accessed with the 3 day €22 pass, although there's no obvious entrance charge if you don't have the ticket. It's located on the edge of a rather weathered looking coastal town, and upon arriving at the site you might be forgiven for thinking you'd taken a wrong turn.... More

We really enjoyed walking around these two villas, they are free to get in and with the help of google maps easily found from the train station. Takes about 15-20 minutes to get to Villa San Marco and then a further 10-15 minutes to get to the other Villa (Ariadne?), then just another 10-15 minutes back to the train st.... More
