The House of the Faun is well worth the high ratings it gets from all the professional writers and critics who have visited over the centuries, as well as the countless tourists. From the delicate statue of a satyr in the atrium to the magnificent 3D cuboid mosaic pavement and on to the world famous mosaic of the battle of... More

Most beautiful (small) statue of the faun in the garden. Do make a point of finding the house and looking at the faun. There are mosaic floors to see as well.

There is enough of this villa remaining to give the visitor an idea of how the other half lived in this ancient city.

This is one of the first curated houses after the baths to the north of the forum area. It is one of the earliest curated parts of the site and other posts will confirm that it is worth seeing. What follows is a bit of gratuitous shopping information for people looking for something a little different and of good quality.... More

Most impressive villa in Pompeii. Nice mosaics. Even by todays standards it would be a very big house.

Even if you go just for the statue (which, by the way, is a copy, the original is kept in Naples museum), it’s worth it!

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.
