Hotel Caruso Belvedere


The sister city of Pompeii was also buried under the lava and mud from Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Excavations began in the 18th century and revealed Roman houses built around a rectangular plan, with baths, a gymnasium, a shop lined with shelves, a group of stag sculptures and some spectacular mosaics.

Visiting times: 8.30am–7.30pm

Nearby, visit Villa Campolieto, a magnificent 18th-century residence designed by the Vanvittelli brothers for the Dukes of Casacalenda, and a proud resident of “Miglio d’Oro” (the Golden Mile), which includes 30 other sites of historical and architectural interest, including villas, monuments and parks.
