This is a large house of a wealthy family and contains a lot of interest in the layout and decoration. There is a lovely peristyle garden and interesting fresco paintings.

this luxury residence is a gem. Many of the walls still have the wonderful artwork on them. The outdoor garden in the center of the property is really cool. The skeleton remains are eerie-but intriguing as well. One of my favorite stops in the city
