Pocket Guide: Pompei House of the Vettii Hotels

Hotels near the House of the Vettii in Pompeii

The House of the Vettii is in Pompeii in the Italian province of Salerno. The house was owned by two relatives, known as the Vettii brothers, who began their lives as slaves and worked their way up to being wealthy freedmen.

During the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, ash covered the House of the Vettii, and it wasn’t until the excavations in 1894 that archaeologists found much of the residence had been preserved. Now, you can visit the House of the Vettii and get an impressive glimpse into life in ancient Pompeii.

The House of the Vettii is in a calm area in western Pompeii where you can find one- to three-star accommodation in cosy hotels and relaxed B&Bs. Just a 15-minute drive away is Pompeii’s centre with the wide choice of places to stay. Book yourself into a boutique hotel in central Pompeii and colourful wall paintings and a friendly concierge service will welcome you. Or stay at a four-star resort hotels in the north of Pompeii with easy access to transport links.

Historic Importance of the House of the Vettii

Although the House of the Vettii doesn’t look all that different from the region’s many other ancient Roman residences, it is one of Pompeii’s most important historic houses. This is because much of it was built and decorated in the decades just before the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, so the wall paintings and architecture of the house help historians to understand what Pompeii was like right before the eruption.

The story of the wealthy Vettii brothers is also historically important. They were part of a group of newly wealthy men who rose up socially after many of Pompeii’s residents fled the city following an earthquake in 62 AD.

Discover Hidden Treasures in the House of the Vettii

Though the House of the Vettii is large and impressive, the entrance to the residence is rather plain and tucked away on a quiet back street. But when you step inside, you’ll see several impressive atriums, well-preserved wall paintings and grand Doric columns.
