even back in the day there was a class system and some of the buildings are amazing for detail and this is a great example, very clever elements for cooling and protection

This is another beautifully restored home of a Pompeii resident. It can be entered abs explored. You can view the marble counters and gardens.

Seriously, when you are walking and walking, for hours and hours, you really lose count of what you have actually seen, because there is just SO MUCH TO SEE there. This was another lovely house which you should put on your MUST SEE list.

House of Amorini Dorati is a very beautiful house worth looking round with a lovely little courtyard and garden filled with shrubbery. The house is larger than many and has been restored really well. Apparently there were rare decorations found in some of the rooms...More

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....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...More

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.

Inside there are are walls painted with scenes of life. Also a intricately carved facade on one of the walls.
