This house is often neglected because it is across the street from Casa di Vettii. Inside you will find frescos, mosaic floor sections and lots of details that only the rich could afford. 10 or 15 minutes here is plenty of time.

Walking around the center garden area are a series of rooms. Some of the frescoes are complete others are partially warn or broken. It is a very nice house and the center court yard garden area is wonderful. I really enjoyed seeing the floor mosaics....More
