  • Since the entry, you feel guest of a classy environment, with a colonnaded garden still well groomed and many details to look at. Statues, small columns, floors, frescoes, mosaics ... worth a visit carefully!

  • The famous Alexander mosaic was found in this House. Currently there is a replica and the original is in a Museum in Naples. Enter one is also with a small statue of a Faun. It is another of those places to which we arrived without following the map and we were surprised.

  • One of the larger houses of Pompeii, as well as a symbol of the city is the House of the Faun, which still can be admired in his unmissable beauty.

  • Casa del Fauno (the House of the Faun), built during the 2nd century BC, was one of the largest and most impressive private residences in Pompeii. It was named for the bronze statue of the dancing faun. Most beautiful little statue, a must see in Pompeii. Highly recommended.The House of the Faun also contained the Alexander Mosaic, now in Naples museum, depicting the Battle of Issus in 333 BC between Alexander the Great and Darius III of Persia._
  • Betufitul and sugestive Villa. Let this building transport you to the glorious past of this anciant city
  • One of the largest houses in Pompeii. It contains the replica of the mosaic depicting Alexander the Great.
  • the hous is a well preserved roman house!
  • Not really that different from other sites, but still rather nice
