The House of the Golden Cupids in Pompei will reopen permanently to the public on April 3 for the first time in ten years. The house got its name from a decoration of cupids engraved in gold foil now conserved in the Museo Archeologico di Napoli. It is dated to the third century BC and is thought to have belonged to Cnaeus Poppaeus Habitus, a relative of the emperor Neros second wife Poppea Sabina. Visits to the house will be organized every 30 minutes for groups of up to 20 people every day of the week from 09.00 to 18.00. Visits are included in the general entry price to Pompei but must be booked in advance at www.arethusa.net. Bookings can be made up to the day before the visit.
