Where the town of Torre Annunziata stands today there once stood the ancient city of Oplontis, buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D. and now, together with Herculaneum and Pompeii, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was a suburban area not far from Pompeii and was administrated by the larger town. What particularly distinguishes Oplontis is the presence of two large buildings that had different uses: Villa di Poppea was a residential building, while the main activity of the Villa of Lucius Crassius Tertius was to process the produce of the land. Oplontis is a delightful, not to be missed gem: a piece of history well worth visiting to experience a world whose life was abruptly interrupted in just a single day.
