  • One of the better preserved houses, with a characteristic miniature figure of Fauna. The rooms have very nice floors and gardens.

  • You will enjoy it there too, but much much you will see and understand in the Archaeological Museum of Naples, which you will definitely visit (15 euros + 1.5 euros, temper). This is how the rich people lived...

  • gigantisch, must see, unbelievable, but start early and finish at lunch time - it will be hot and the area is very big. a guide is the best to explore this super nice place
  • This is one of the most impressive sites that have been discovered in this area. The mosaics are very well preserved and what has been discovered gives a great impression of what the owners must have enjoyed day to day in their home. There are great photo opportunities as well. So, if you want some good shots of loved ones, go earlier in the day, wait out other people and take shots with no one else in the background.
