One of the very well-restored houses within Pompeii. Lots of artwork to view and the gardens are lovely as well. Note: This is a part of the main Scavi di Pompeii sites, and you don't need an additional ticket to see it.

This is one of the most famous and elaborate personal residences. Known for it's erotic art and gardens. Owned by some very rich and famous playboys of the time.

this building was in amazing condition, plenty of art work on the walls, some underground rooms and human skeletons that have been preserved in clear boxes.

Yet more reviews of Pompeii and it's ruins. If you go to Pompeii, this is literally all you can do. Best read up on your Roman history before you visit.
