This gem of a site reminded me a lot of ruins I have seen in Israel and Greece. The entry is free and you can ask for the information in English.

Well worth a visit. Free entry and interesting place in the middle of Minori. We accidentally stumbled on the attraction while walking the 1500 steps from Ravello to Minori. Glad we visited

Small but always worth visiting places that have been unearthed. Free entry. Only takes ½ to visit this place. So do it

In the heart of Minori, you will find this precious jewel. Make sure to request as the history of this underground city and Roman Villa are the most fascinating insights you will learn about. Definitely worth a visit, especially to take a brake for all...More

We were staying in Minori so decided to have a look at these ruins. Not really much to see. The museum looked OK but we didn't bother to go in

Open from memory 10am. It's not that big but is interesting. There was nothing in English that I remember but I did work out what the items were. worth a visit and then a coffee or lunch locally. Have fun.
