“One of the more interesting parts of Pompeii...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

One of the larger houses in Pompeii, it's certainly impressive. The bronze statue is quite the tribute to the life that once was. Don't miss Herculaneum (a different set of ruins a short train ride from Pompeii) though!

“Beautiful”

Super site, another one on the Pompeii trail not to miss. The fresco's are beautiful and add to the experience this Roman city has to offer.

“Highlight of Pompeii”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Amazing, but you need to see the finds in the museum in Naples as well. We did this before visiting Pompeii so had a good idea before getting here

“See the Archeological museum Napoli”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

In odrder to see the original frescoes and mosaics do visit the Archeological museum in Napoli.
For an ordinary driver DEFINITELY not recommended to go by car to Napoli traffic. Use Circumvesuviana (private) railway. If not in strike or pre-strike it goes every 20 minutes and the ticket costs 2,80 € (Pompei Scavi-Napoli, appr half an hour). You can visit Ercolaneo ruins on the way.

“See the Faun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

The real Faun is located in the archeology museum in Naples. The one in Pompeii is a copy. Even so, it is a villa that should not be missed.

So, this is the way that wealthy well "connected" Romans actually lived!!
