  • The Pan's statue as well as the mosaic of Alexander the great are copies, the originals are in the Archaeological Museum of Naples. Anyway, the whole thing looks very elegant and harmonious, even to beginners is evident the typical layout of the Roman domus. Not to be missed!

  • This patrician House offers a fine example of the classical distribution of the premises in Roman houses. You clearly distinguish local representation.

  • 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._
