Useful information


It is hard to describe the melancholy charm of this street flanked by monumental tombs and cypress trees. There are tombs with niches, small circular or square temples, altars resting on plinths, drum-shaped mausoleums, semi-circular seats (exedra), in short all forms of Greco-Roman funerary art adorn this quiet secluded spot, perfect for meditation (all the more so as Vesuvius looms large on the horizon!). On the bend is the villa of Diomedes with a loggia overlooking a garden.
