Beautiful vila with great garden and rooms with mosaics. Some of it was restricted since they were doing digging and preserving.

The House of the Faun is one of the most famous houses in Pompei and was luckily open when we visited (Houses are frequently closed including when we were there The House of the Tragic Poet although you can still see the famous 'Cave Canem' mosaic at its entrance). An extensive site it is best known for its famous miniature faun statue and its Alexander The Great mosaic but note both of these are replicas. The originals are in the museum in Naples. I love the mosaic at the entrance spelling out the single word 'Have', a variant of the Roman 'Ave' meaning greeting (see photo). Whoever lived here must presumably have been one of the most wealthy inhabitants judging from its size and grandeur. There are many must sees in Pompei but make sure you visit this one if it is open.

One of the must see houses in Pompeii. The entrance way, the little statue of the Faun and the mosaic are all worthy of your time. Easy to find. Easy to miss if not looking for it. A 10 mins visit. Could be crowded.

The House of the Faun is located somewhat central in Pompeii not far from the forum, and is clearly the home of a once wealthy local. The mosaic showing the battle between Alexander the Great and Darius is stunning, albeit the original is in the museum in Naples. The statue of the faun, in the main atrium, is smaller than you would imagine but fantastic none the less. This is a must visit site when in Pompeii.

This is an incredibly well preserved house that shows us what life was like almost 2,000 years ago! Amazing!
