  • The House of the Faun is one of the most important of Pompeii, where the Roman nobility had their summer mansions. It was very important since it had two atriums. The highlight is the copy of the statue of pan, the original of which is in the archaeological museum and the painting of the battles of Alexander the great.

  • One of the most well-known but not great thing to see. In addition, everything is copy since the original (fauna, mosaic of Alexander) are in the Archaeological Museum of Naples.

  • 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
