House of Sallust

One of the most famous residences in Pompeii

The House of Sallust is one of the most famous residences in Pompeii, an ancient Roman city buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79. The house is named after its alleged owner, but there is no concrete evidence to confirm that Sallust was actually its inhabitant.
The house dates back to the 2nd century BC and is located along the Via Consolare, one of Pompeii’s main roads. It is considered one of the best examples of Roman residential architecture and shows a mix of styles and cultural influences.

The structure of the house is complex and includes various rooms, such as the vestibule, the peristyle (the inner courtyard surrounded by columns), several rooms decorated with frescoes, a triclinium (dining room), and a garden.
The frescoes in the House of Sallust are particularly famous for their beauty and the quality of the paintings. They depict mythological scenes, landscapes, still lifes and scenes of everyday life.

The House of Sallust is one of the most visited sites in Pompeii and offers an important testimony to daily life and art in ancient Rome.
