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.

  • 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.
  • The biggest house (in ruins now, of course) in the Pompeii archeological complex
  • A fine example of a Roman domus.
  • This house was cool to see. The original floor in some parts. Worth a look.
