The Park

The cultural heritage that pertains to the Pompeii Archaeological Park does not end with "just" 66 hectares, of which 50 excavated, which make up the area we commonly call Excavations. But it also extends to the numerous and equally important finds that have been brought to light in the neighboring areas.

However, not all of them date back to the same historical period, but their cultural relevance and their strategic position make them the ideal recipients of the great enhancement project started by the Pompeii Archaeological Park Institute, so named on 12 January 2017 by the D.M.

In addition to the sites listed below, the Real Bourbon Powder Factory of Scafati (SA) is currently part of the Pompeii Archaeological Park, but is currently not open to visitors.


It houses the Antiquarium, an important museum in which the finds that tell the story of life in the villas of the area before the eruption of Vesuvius are exhibited.


The Villa di Poppea, in Torre Annunziata, is probably the Vesuvian archaeological site that offers the most significant monumental evidence of the Pompeian suburb.


Although not yet completely brought to light, in Castellammare di Stabia it is possible to visit three important residential villas, which also testify to the thermal soul of the city.


Located in Longola di Poggiomarino, this protohistoric site represents a perifluvial settlement frequented until the 6th century. B.C.

Castello di Lettere

It dates back to the 10th century AD. this castle wanted by the Duchy of Amalfi to control the two sides of the Lattari mountains. Today, in addition to the rooms, it is possible to admire the finds discovered during the excavation campaigns.

Reggia di Quisisana

Its current appearance is that of a "hunting and holiday lodge", so strongly desired by Charles III of Bourbon and its fame is testified by the watercolors and engravings by Hackert and Dahl found in excellent condition.
