The house of the Deers is a true sign of the wealth of the era. When walking around it, the feeling is something of desire and wealth based on the layout and design of the dwelling. One can only imagine how it would have felt in its day as the mosaics, servants rooms and garden…
It was pretty amazing to walk through this villa with our guide imagining what a luxurious waterfront piece of property it was!
It is one of the most amazing views that you may have in the ercolano ruins. It is very well preserved, intersting to visit the house and amazing mosaics to see
One of the lovelier houses in Herculaneum, with a beautiful garden with statues of stags (cervi) sadly being attacked by dogs. There are also some amazing frescoes, including one at least 1500 years before its time showing a still life scene with a crystal clear drinking glass.
This was one of the best houses in the town and would have had a superb sea view. It is well worth entering as you go down towards the dock area. The bronze statues of two deer are now in the museum in Naples
