"Villa Arianna: the frescoes" Castellammare di Stabia Travelogue by leics

Castellammare di Stabia Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 57 photos

Yes, there are many wonderful wall frescoes in this villa although it was not possible to get close to many of the most impressive ones.

Main photo in its context.

Tiny detailed painting..perhaps 20cm tall?

Grasshoppers.

Along the base of the corridor.

Tiny bird detail.

'Wallpaper' fresco.

All this tiny, intricate detail was painted by hand straight onto the plaster..
