Villa dei Misteri, Pompeii: 18 reviews and 52 photos

  A villa living room

I don't know where they come up with these names, but this was a really nice place to check out. The reason I was tempted to visit the Villa of Mysteries was because I'd heard about this amazing fresco of a dionysian ritual. The fresco was said to date back to some where around 50BC, and it is amazingly well preserved. Now, the Villa itself isn't like a mansion, it's just a normal place with living rooms, bedrooms, gardens, and a few kitchens.
