Take a trip to the past by visiting Casa del Fauno, a private residence that still stands open to the public. Dating back to the 2nd century BCE, the building has housed artwork throughout history, some of which remains. 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.

  • Another villa with historical monuments, statues and frescoes, is cared for, but inside the same ruins that and everywhere. You can get an idea about the life of the wealthy residents of Pompeii.

  • Quite widely, anywhere from this House on site? It is like home. Known as the House of the Faun. Pretty picture in some places.

  • Next to the Forum, watch out! normally the guides do not become the so large excavations. It is very well preserved, is a great opportunity to go to the each of the Faun. Take you time and calm visit.
