The ancient Stabiae, the name of the current Castellammare di Stabia, was obscured by the fame of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Nowaydays, its popularity is strictly connected to two ancient Villas, buried under the ashes of Vesuvius in 79 A.D, representing important historical evidences of the “Roman Otium” here in Campania.

The ancient City of Stabiae had a strategic and commercial role since the Archaic Age (VIII sec. B.C.)
Between the destruction of the city by Silla (89 B.C.) and the eruption of Vesuvius (79 A.D.), on the western edge of the Varano hill, several villas in a panoramic position arose, in large neighborhoods, with thermal baths, and well-decorated porches.
VILLA SAN MARCO
Villa San Marco, so-called for being close to the San Marco chapel, was explored at the Bourbons Age, and dug up in the 50’s. This villa conserves an intact plant, witnessing the luxurious lives during the Roman times.
Excavated during the Bourbons Ages, its plant reveals originality and search for the particular. The Triclinium with several painting referring to the myth of Arianna, is well-preserved. Decorations and frescos, with frequent subjects in miniature, reveal good taste and expertise in realisation.
