Be sure that you do not miss the Mystery House, it's is at the very far end of the city, but it's one of the best preserved building with magnificent frescos! Little tip: at the book shop you can find a sort of pop up...More

We took the train out to Via Nocera, went right leaving train station and walked for about 15 minutes until we hit a major intersection. Make a right there. The sign for Scavi di Stabia is facing traffic coming from other way, so it will...More

Two well maintained Roman villas 500 k apart and a little off the beaten track but well worth the visit. Although we walked from the local train station, we would advice going by car or taxis. It was free entry with many accessible rooms having...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.

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...More

Catch the Circumvesuviana Train to Castellammare di Stabia from Naples and alight at Via Nocera. The trip takes about 20 minutes. Villa Arianna is slightly closer to the station so this was our first stop, which takes around... More
How would I arrange to get a taxi to the villas from the train station? Are there taxis at Castellammare di Stabia if I got off the train there? Or does anyone know of any tours there, leaving from Sorrento which don't include Pompeii or Herculanium?

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.

Hi All. We are going to Pompeii in about 3 weeks....our second trip to the area. This time we would like to go to the Villa San Marco and Villa Arianna in Stabiae. Is there a local bus at the train station (Nocera) that will take us there? I have searched the sites, and of course Trip Advisor (where I have reviewed many sights, restaurants, etc) but can find NO mention of a local bus back and forth to these 2 villas. My husband says he DID see that there was a bus, but now can't find where it's mentioned. We are definitely not walking and are uncertain if there are taxis, but the cost would be a lot to ask the driver to wait. Thanks!
