  venus in the shell
by Evenith666

As with many of the buildings in Pompeii, this house was still being restored after the Earthquake which hit the city several years earlier. This house is again famous for one of its fresco's, depicting the Birth of Venus in a clam shell, and is worth visiting for this alone.

Address: Via Dell'Abbondanza, Reg II, Ins 3
Directions: This house is located on the next block along from the House of Octavius Quartio, on the Via Dell'Abondanza

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
