Villa Arianna, 1976. Looking towards the summer triclinium. In front of the fine rooms of the Villa, designed to take advantage of the view, was a portico but only one column remains from it, and a balustrade. On the right, at the side of the balustrade, the steps and a ramp would have led down to the two terraces and to the seashore. Photo by Stanley A. Jashemski.

According to Wilhelmina,

“There is a series of rooms arranged in a row overlooking the sea, built on a terrace buttressed by an arcaded wall.

A large triclinium with a painting of the marriage of Dionysus and Ariadne gave the villa its name.

The long loggia with rooms opening toward the sea is typical of the many maritime villas found along the coast.”
