OPLONTI

On the territory currently occupied from Torre dell'Annunziata, not far from Naples, it rose in Roman age Oplontis, holiday center of the noble Romans.
The term derives from the Tabula Peutingeriana, a reproduction of XIII century of a map reporting the Roman streets of some areas of the Empire: Oplontis is marked with some fountains remembering the presence of thermal baths.

Excavations since 1960 have made emerge a magnificent villa with statues and parietal paintings that is believed to have been the summery residence of Poppea, emperor Nerone's spouse.
Villa Poppea strikes for the luxury and the pomp of frescoed rooms, some of which were assigned to banquets for the nobility while others only to the empress. Impressive the width of the porticos and the courtyards and the presence of an olimpic swimming pool.
It has been found also several statues and jewels of great value.

Another villa is emerged, once belonged to Lucio Crasso Terzio, and a thermal bath in the vicinities of the sea.
