Tourists could again enjoy six masterpieces of the ancient city. These Domus are allocated along Via dell'Abbondanza. The Superintend of Pompei said that they choose them because they give back an extraordinary cross section of the life in the roman city.
The rooms of these houses throw light on the lifestyle of richer and privileged citizens. However, there are also more modest dwellings where ordinary people lived, such as the House of Fabius Amandus and the one of the Priest Amandus.
The House of Cryptoporticus dates back to the III century BC and takes its name from an underground vaulted passageway, running along three sides of the quadrangular garden. A living room and thermal bathing rooms open onto this corridor.
