Even if it is located a bit out of the center the house is beautifully conserved. You can still admire the pavements and the wall painting, the different divisions of the house and the purpose that each place had. Quite impressive

This visit will give you some cover from the sun or rain as it is outside but undercover. No English info but is still interesting to see the layout of the villa. A short walk up the hill gives you access to Columbarios

The archeological remains of the Mitreo House are really worth seeing as original pavements and mural painting can be seen. Watching the ruins you can imagine how the house should have been along Roman epoch. Worth visiting if you love history.
