Casa Del Poeta Tragico, Pompeii: 7 reviews and 12 photos
The Casa del Poeta Tragico (in English, House of the tragic poet) is a typical residence of the middle class built in the last time of the town of Pompeii. You can see part of its wonderful frescos in the National Museum in Naples, but many of them are still in the house. The visit begins from the entry where you can see a mosaic showing a dog with the write CAVE CANEM (beware to the dog). The next room is the Tablinum with a geometric mosaic and many small rooms along the sides. Behind it you can see the peristyle with a small temple. In the triclinium you can see some nice frescos showing Venus contemplates a nest of cupids; Theseus abandons Ariadne; Dido and Aeneas; in the sides you can see the personification of the seasons.
Address: Regio VI, VIII
