This paper describes the results of a geoarchaeological survey of the underwater extension (maritime annexes) of Roman villa located on the Arco alluvial plain. The three building phases recognized there (1 predating and 2 post-dating the eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79), read in their relations with the local stratigraphy, and geomorphology, permit to reconstruct the coastal change that were induced by the mentioned eruption. In particular, this paper reports the results of a GIS analysis of off shore data obtained by an integrated geophysical survey. It permitted not only the precise mapping of the harbour ruins (part of which covered by sediments), but also to recognize remnants of the fandelta that formed there soon after the A.D. 79 eruption and was subsequently destroyed by wave erosion.
