The Peristylium is the garden of the house, though here at the Villa we have other gardens surrounding the outside as well. On sunny days the family sometimes eat out here, rather than in one of the Triclinia, to enjoy the good weather. There are various herbs and flowers growing here, particularly lilies, roses and violets, which are popular plants to have growing in the Peristylium.
The rooms that you find find around the Peristylium include the Cucina (kitchens), Cubiculum (bedroom), the Bibliotheca (library), and the Baths are a bit detached from here.
