The House of the Prince of Naples in Pompeii is located on the west side of the Vicolo dei Vettii in Regio VI. The atrium of the domus has an impluvium and a marble table with richly carved supports. The walls of all the rooms are decorated in the Fourth Pompeian Style with life-size images of Bacchus and Venus painted on the walls of the summer triclinium.
