We have visited Castellammare many times over the years and included trips to Pompei and Ercolano but never visited these excavations on our doorstep before. I was on foot and they are well tucked away but we'll worth the effort. There is no entrance fee...More

This place is well worth a visit if you enjoy Roman history. It is a little tricky to find if you're on your own but very rewarding. There are only 2 large villas that have been excavated and there is some excellent detail to see....More

This place is huge and at least as well preserved as Villas in Pompeii - but without the crowds. If you want to spend a lot of time and see a variety of buildings and squares, then trudging around with the hordes in the heat...More

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...More

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.

I didn't notice any taxis by the station when I was there - I agree with KTGP that it would probably be better to phone or e-mail to book one.

Hey Gail. I kinda agree with Jeanne D. Once I saw the place (and we were there on a horrible rainy day in early October) I was really glad we had a guide who brought us. I have read that it is easy to make a wrong turn and... More
