The site of Oplontis is situated not far from the station of the Circumvesuvian railroad at the town of Torre Annunziata. It is a grand villa believed to have belonged to the family of Poppaea, the wife of the emperor Nero (Monteverdis Poppaea). It is quite a recent find, very well preserved. The wall-paintings have not yet suffered so much from air and light as many others.
