The walls are painted artistically, and the couches are luxurious. And it does not stop there. The whole of Pompeii is exquisite. Its forum is several hundred feet long, its width perhaps 20% of that length, and if you stand at one end you have a beautiful view of Vesuvius in the distance. Along the colonnade are wonderful sculptures--portraits of leading citizens, most impressive equestrian statues, and "colossal" statues of the imperial family. I believe one in the center is a colossal portrait of the divine Augustus, and there are also statues of Claudius I, Agrippina, Nero, and Tiberius (Mau 47-8). You should see the temples of Jupiter and Apollo, right next to the Forum. The Jupiter is on a grand scale, having been restored by Vespasian after it burned (Mau 107). The floor of the Apollo--exquisite geometric patterns of mosaic tile--is especially beautiful. I am told it was fully restored after an earthquake during Nero's reign (Mau 80). There is a temple to Vespasian as well; the bas relief fronting marble altar shows the sacrifice of a bull.
