Right at the far end of the Pompei ancient site. Do have a look it's worth the walk. Part of the archaeological Pompei site.

This house is a bit off from the main streets of the Pompei site. But well worth a visit. In the beginning it had 90 rooms, all beautifully decorated. The excavation begun in 1930’s.

Walked up to this when in Pompei ruins, not sure why this is mentioned separately. Something we missed? Gift shop close and cafe bit further along the road.

Do check the opening times for this villa on your arrival. We didn’t and ended up coming back another day to see it as it closed at lunchtime and we didn’t realise. It was well worth it though. Fabulous mosaics and, if you go straight...More

The frescoes inside the Villa are beautiful and extremely well preserved. The detail is amazing! Well worth the walk to get there. They are mainly in one room so be careful not to miss them as you walk through.

This part of the ruins gives you some of the better art to view. Well shaded and a little off the beaten track this is well worth the trip.

A hidden gem in the far corner having walked down one of Pompeii’s necropolis’ you stumble across this villa, amazing frescos and unfortunately plaster casts of its two unlucky residents. Amazing architecture which survived a must as part of you Pompeii experience

At the very top of the ancient city, the villa is located off the beaten path where not many tourists go. It is absolutely stunning with some of the most well preserved frescoes in the Pompei ruins. Take a look at Google images.

The door by the Villa dei misteri is only an exit. You have to enter through one of the entrances. The closest one is downhill on the left hand side of the road when exiting the Circumvesuviana station. You will then have to... More

Cruise ships generally have excursions to Pompei. Be prepared for a hot few hours with lots of other Visitors. I would not recommend going on your own there. If the cruise offers a trip to Paestum take that in preference to... More

It is part of the Pompeian Ruins. At the northwest entrance kind of by itself. It was a pretty nice house of one of the more wealthy residents. There are some great frescoes and there is continuing restoration at this site... More
