  • The magnificent House of the Faun is located on the Via della Fortuna and it was the only private house that we visited. It is large, one of the largest in Pompeii and occupies the whole block...  more »
  • Beautiful vila with great garden and rooms with mosaics. Some of it was restricted since they were doing digging and preserving.  more »

  • 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.
