どこからどこまでがファウノの家なのか、と思うほどの広さです。道から入口までの床の作りからして贅沢な作りが施されていました。部屋もいくつもあったり、祭壇が設けられていたりで、どのようにして富を得たのか知りたくなりました。Fauno House of far from where it is. The quietness from the road to the entrance floor was decorated in luxurious. Room number or the altar was prepared for or in wealth, how do you want to know now.show original

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.
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!
One of my favorite spots in Pompeii
