“Interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

We had a book from our hotel on how to visit the ruins. It explained about how they used urine to wash the clothing so it was interesting to see the area and imagine the slaves stomping on urine soaked clothes. Oh my!

“Lovely place, as the other villas here in Pompeii.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

Another very important and beautiful Pompeii's villa.
Obviously without any guide or some audio explanation the entire visit of the villas could be boring.
The baths of Stephanus is one of many assets that are contained in this vast archaeological area, definitely worth a visit.

“Good but not explained”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2013

Didn't really know what this was until I matched up the photos here with the photos we'd taken. Things could have been so much better signed and explained. If only to say at the start: Make sure you get a guide and a map, and these are the official audiotours (which were just outside in the lineup of market stalls).

“Fullery of Stephanus - modern looking workshop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2013

Can be found on the Via dell Abbondanza nr. 52 (of original map of the site). This workshop was used for finishing and washing of fabrics. You can see the basins into which the fabrics were placed. The building had two floors and many levels, rooms and stairs.
