I really enjoyed this area. I must say I was a little disappointed that the Faun was a replica (original in Naples Museum). I loved the gardens and just wandered and thought about this grand villa that once was. That's what this this place is about…imagining what it was like and exploring its history. It's really amazing.

This is from a villa that I also included a photograph on my review of Pompeii. These requests for reviews from trip advisor can more accurately remind me exactly which villa the statue was in. It is in what appears to be a small pool at one time.

Although, for various reasons, this house is deemed to be one of the more important sites (because of the various things excavated there) there is not very much to see. The Faun (after which the house is named) is actually a recent reproduction, the original having been carted off to the Naples Museum.

This really shows the size and wealth of the Pompeii folk and no money spared . From the main entrance with ornate archway door then the bronze statue in the water square , to the various rooms around to the grand pillars through out the villa , the vast mosaic flour made with tiny coloured tiles to produce an amazing...

The faun is a little bronze statue in the fountain at the entry. Here you can see the famous mosaic of Alexander the Great (copies, the originals are in the museum in Napels)

You get an idea of what is was like but need to go to the archaeological museum in Naples to see the real splendour of this villa.

Amazing house with garden and beautiful mosaics. You can feel history. Unfortunately a little bit crowded.

A piece of ancient times very well preserved. Do not miss this place. It gives a flavor of what the life of rich and famous was back then...
