Villa dei Misteri currently closed.

In the current Covid-19 one way system, you can absolutely explore Pompeii beyond the set route, especially in the direction of the Amphitheatre, but we failed to find an open route to the Villa dei Misteri. We tried multiple ways, but everything was blocked off.

For those interested, unfortunately we also could not enter the House of the Vettii. We were able to walk up to it and peek at the entrance way (worth it!). The floor was covered and we could see workers inside, so this may have been ordinary scheduled archaeological work, and may have been nothing to do with Covid. It may be temporary, but I was disappointed to not see the Cinnabar.

Beautiful frescoes, do not miss it
Oct 2019 • Friends
We had a private guide, which I highly recommend when visiting the site, who took us there. The frescoes are indescribable. The most amazing are details about life, food, plants and animals they apparently had at this vibrant location at the time.

Hidden gem
Mar 2020
This is off the beaten track in the Pompei Archeological Park and quite a walk to reach but well worth it. There are many wall paintings, frescoes and mosaic floors in this House Of Mysteries. Mystifying!

Highlight of Pompei
Mar 2020
We had time so Michael, our private guide, made special stop here. The vila is beautiful but the painting inside more so.

Imagine when the full Villa will be available for visitors!!!!
Nov 2019
A 20 minutes walk from the core of Pompei, this complex houses a stunning collection of frescoes still in their places (while many other Pompei frescoes have been translated to the archaeological museum). What can be seen is simply splendid and I hope that in the future visitors will have access to more araeas. An incredible visit.Entrance is included in the general ticket for the site of Pompei. Dirty cheap for what can be seen and visited and so expensive to protect.

A must-see if you are visiting Pompeii
Oct 2019
It is a long walk to get to the Villa, but it is totally worth it! The Villa is preserved amazing well and you can see a lot of original paint on the walls. It was one of my favorite parts of Pompeii.

Frescos in this villa are just stunning. To think they are 2000 years old! Just incredible. Definitely a must see and worth the walk.

Beautiful frescoes
Oct 2019 • Couples
Would be easy for unguided visitors to the ruins to miss this gem hidden along a long track in the corner of the park. Absolutely beautiful frescoes adorn the walls of this beautifully preserved building. Well worth the short walk to take a look. There is no additional fee to view the building.

worth the walk

Worth the walk- beautiful reminder of what the city looked like in its prime. So much to see you need to spend hours is the city.

Stunning, uplifting frescoes, must be seen
Oct 2019 • Couples
I was exhausted by the time I got there but I got a worthy reward for that long, hot, and bumpy walk on uneven stones. There I encountered several rooms of brilliantly colored, exquisitely painted frescoes, that are breathtaking-- it's exciting seeing them in situ as they really were experienced. As an artist I found them and their luminous color inspiring and thrilling. Those reds and yellows! To think that these paintings are nearly 2000 years old, and survived the eruption in 79 A.D. and other occurrences since, and are still here to tell us about life back then, is inspiring and uplifting. A must, the grand finale of your Pompeii visit.
