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.

  • Wonderful villa in Pompeii, if it is open it is a must visit even though a couple of the items are replicas of the original (Faun statue and Alexander mosaic). The front entrance is beautiful and the layout of the villa to handle both business and personal was very interesting. The mosaics in the house are very detailed and are indicative of a very prosperous owner.
  • The house that shows the level of elegance and prosperity of the Romanian aristocracy. You are impressed by the presence of artistic representations, such as the faun, the mosaics, the Doric and Ionic columns, the elaborate architecture of the house, the presence of the interior gardens... It is a must see.
