Following the visit of the Casa del Menandro, in the north side of the peristyle you can see the rooms of the owners of the house. In the green room along the peristyle you can see a fresco showing cupids among shoots of grapevine and with the humorous story of the wedding of Ippodamia. In one of the painted niches of the peristyle you can see the fresco showing the Greek poet Menander who gives the name to the house. In the right side of the house there is the thermal district with the calidarium: here you can see a mosaic showing sea animals and people.
