Pocket Guide: Villa of the Mysteries Villa of the Mysteries Hotels

Visit the Villa of the Mysteries

The Villa of the Mysteries is a well-preserved Roman suburban villa just outside Pompeii, southern Italy. Within walking distance of many other Pompeii attractions, the Villa of the Mysteries is a popular place to see.

The Villa of the Mysteries was covered by feet of ash in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Excavations that started in 1909 found many of the rooms and paintings only slightly damaged, and today you could spend hours looking at the vivid ancient frescos on the villas walls.

Hotels near the Villa of the Mysteries

Stay in one of Pompeii’s many hotels near to the Villa of the Mysteries and Pompeii’s other must-see sites. Choose a mid-range or boutique hotel near via Roma in central Pompeii and then take a leisurely walk out to the Villa of the Mysteries. Pompeii’s luxury four- and five-star hotels, B&Bs and resorts are also in the ancient town centre, where spas, pools and top-notch restaurants welcome you.

But if you want to be closer to this magnificent villa, you can find comfortable villas, B&Bs and several three-star hotels on the west side of Pompeii, just minutes away by foot from the villa.

Discover the Secrets of the Villa of the Mysteries

The Villa of the Mysteries was named after one its rooms, which is known as the Initiation Chamber. This room is on the right of the villa and has vivid murals. While the exact meaning of the images is still hotly debated, many historians believe they depict the initiation of a young girl into a mystery cult or secret religious school. This girl is thought to have belonged to the Dionysian cult, a group that uses substances, dance and music to help followers shed their inhibitions.

Explore an Extravagant Villa

The Villa of the Mysteries, like all of the large Roman villas in Pompeii, would have been owned by a wealthy ancient family. The villa has several rooms for entertaining guests, as well as separate rooms for extravagant dining. There is also a dedicated wine-making area, which suggests that the family owned land and made both wine and lived well off the land.
