Beautiful gardens and Fresno - pop in to see; worth walking down to. Note: This is a part of the main Scavi di Pompeii sites, and you don't need an additional ticket to see it.

Pompeii and ancient times payed respect to the gods etc, this feature is still in good condition and it is great that some vegetation has been nurtured to give the feature some perspective,

The house is a nice one but not one of the most spectacular, however the Venus tryptic fresco is worth a detour by itself

The house of Venus in the shell has some of the most vibrant and beautiful frescoes. The house was the hime of a wealthy family. You can walk along the marble floors through the rooms and into the gardens.

House of venus in the shell is well worth a look if only to view the lovely wall paintings that have been restored. Also nice gardens at this attraction.

this huge house was next to the stadium and was better preserved than some of the others. It had some sort of swimming pool at the back which was difficult to see it was long rather than square or oblong.a definite one to see.
