About the place you will visit

During the Imperial age Stabiae flourished as an urban establishment with six seaside villas located on a gorgeous panoramic position on the edge of the coast. Here the admiral of the Roman fleet Pliny the Elder landed to observe the cataclysm of 79 A.D. The town was also buried under ash and lapilli and the excavations carried out so far have uncovered some residential villas of the Roman aristocracy. Among them the most famous are Villa Arianna and Villa San Marco which represent some of the most outstanding evidence of Roman architecture. Since 2004 the Superintendence of Pompeii cooperate with the University of Maryland in order to promote the maintenance and the excavations within the territory of Stabia.
