400 metres north of Pompeii, just on the outskirts, is a suburban villa that was owned by God-knows-who. That’s the case for most houses in Pompeii, but the villa does stand out for a few reasons. One, though buried like the rest of the city, it was significantly less damaged. It takes it’s name from a series of paintings that depict the initiation of a young woman into a mysterious cult of Dionysus, though it’s also suspected of being a rite of marriage. They even found a wine press here.

* The facts given above are based on traveler data on TripHobo and might vary from the actual figures
  • Stopped as part of a Pompeii tour package, offered set meal for 13 euros per person, I had sea bass, pizzas x2 and spaghetti Bolognese all fresh and tasty, quickly served. Also comes with a drink and dessert. Over priced.

  • Location was very good given my intent for being here (visiting the archaeological site at Pompeii). The room was very nice, including a private bathroom and balcony. The only issue I had with the Villa was that the wifi was at times spotty and required somewhat regular reconnection using the credentials only provided at the front desk

  • Nice swimming pool, no fancy rooms but clean, Internet not working

  • Enjoyed my stay. The rooms could do with a fridge in them as no restaurant or snack bar near.

  • Out of the way of the big crowd in the most remote corner of the Pompeii ruins a very well preserved villa with really nice frescoes.
