  • This place is worth a visit just to see the beauty that can be created in mosaic. The mosaic of the battle in the middle of the building is with the smallest tiles i have ever seen and is beautiful.  more »

  • 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
