Among all the archaeological sites buried under the ashes after the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D., Oplontis is the one that offers the most important monumental evidences of the Pompeian suburb.
Oplontis is characterized by two monumental buildings: Villa Poppeae, a great and luxurious residential compound and Villa Crassius Tertius, an ancient company of country products, now closed.
Villa Poppea, discovered between 1964 and 1984, one of the greatest example of the Roman Otium, was located on the coastline. Its spectacular paintings in Pompeian style decorate the gardens and the pool. The building presents the typical characteristics of the Patricians villas.
This villa probably belonged to Poppea, the wife of Nero. According to some witnesses, the building was part of the several properties of the Royal family all around the coast of Campania.
