Pocket Guide: Pompei House of the Faun Hotels

Hotels near the House of the Faun in Pompeii

The House of the Faun is one of the largest archaeological sites in Pompeii and is just a train or bus ride from the hotels, B&Bs and spa resorts in nearby Salerno.

The House of the Faun was a private residence housing many aristocrats and their expensive collections of artwork. The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD covered the area in a layer of ash, which rendered the site unusable. But, the ash preserved many of the mosaics and artworks that would have been otherwise lost to decay over time.

To be near the House of the Faun and be able to visit easily more than once, consider staying at a hotel in Pompeii. Choose a four-star resort with an outdoor swimming pool and vibrantly coloured rooms, or opt for more modest accommodation in a hotel above one of Pompeii’s pizzerias.

At your hotel, a friendly local concierge can point you to all of the best Pompeii attractions, including shops and restaurants, and the House of the Faun – much of it is within walking distance of Pompeii’s hotels.

Ancient Artwork at the House of the Faun

The House of the Faun is a treasure trove of art, ranging from sculptures to colourful floor mosaics. The house takes its name from a bronze statue in the grounds depicting a dancing faun. Fauns were considered to be spirits of the woodlands, and the sculpture portrays the faun as being graceful on his feet.

Another popular piece of art preserved in the House of the Faun is the Alexander Mosaic, which shows Alexander the Great in battle. Check out the modern reconstruction of the mosaic to really get a feel for it.

Explore the House of the Faun’s Lavish Design

Exploring the House of the Faun you get a real feeling for the extravagance that the original inhabitants enjoyed. Over five sections, from an atrium, a private bath system in the domestic quarters and Corinthian columns surrounding manicured gardens to servants dwellings, the house serves as evidence of the wealth of the owners has.
