Another one to put on your list.

Its hard not to try and imagine what day to day life went on here. obviously a wealthy family going by the size of the house, the pictures, mosaics and the courtyard with garden.

I saw a photo of this house, specifically the peristyle courtyard, a long time ago. The picture itself was quite old because the herms in the garden still had their heads on, the shrubbery needed care, and several masks were hanging from the peristyle roof. What puzzled me was a dark object across the garden from where the picture, in... More

This is another of the places in Pompeii where you can go back in time and imagine how people lived so long ago. This is probably one of my favourite places in Pompeii. The house was of an elite family and so much of it is still there that you can envisage their life.

A bit unusual because the walls are covered with paintings of everyday life in the city. Decorated with gilded cupids (which are largely gone now). A wealthy home owner with an individualistic style.

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.

It was interesting to see how water was allowed into the pool in the front room and the layout of the home's property.

Each of the sights at Pompeii are so special from the perspective of preserving history of everyday life in the ancient city. The House of the Gilded Cupids is outstanding because it offers a great example of the multi room Pompeii villas, central atrium, mosaic floors and wall frescoes. Nice. ...

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. The geometric design one is fabulous. If in the area have a look.
