Visit the aristocratic house of the Roman Empire to see tesserae mosaics depicting the battle of Issus between the Persian Empire and Alexander the Great along with theater masks and archeological findings. Take a peek at the erotic imagery of Satyr and Nymph, a typical mosaic for Pompeii culture, and absorb the Roman culture that ruled the city for centuries.

  • One of the largest houses in Pompeii. You can admire beautiful paintings but above all beautiful mosaics in a great summer of conservation.

  • The layout of the house is common to others present in the city and roughly to all private houses of a certain level. But Alexander's Mosaic... that's not normal! It is something incredible, it tells not only the taste of a family but the importance that was given to the time to the story, the value of the characters and the esteem towards universal values. And Pompeii particularly loved Alexander the Great!

  • 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.
