Double opening for the archeological site and the museum. From the Octavio Quartius gardens to the huge complex of Julia Felix and the extraordinary viridarium of the House of the goddess of the sea. While Pompeii preserves the appearance of a unique, large restoration site, its cultural offer is increasing: 5 new domus and the Amphitheatre are now open to the public, together with the art exhibition “Myth and nature” in the Archeological Museum in Naples.
The five houses amaze the visitors with their beauty. Here the gardens of Casa Octavius Quartius, where there are the fresco of the double suicide of love of Pyramus and Thisbe and Narciso, mirrored in the waters .
Next to it, the viridarium of the House of Venus in the shell: on the back wall the painting of the goddess of the sea, back to its ancient splendor, and the reproduction of a stature of Mars.
The grandiose complex of Julia Felix is also reopening, a hotel with spa facilities and the porch with square marble columns.
A surprise is offered by the House of Orchard, well known for its garden frescoes and the atrium decorated with mosaic in black and white and a beautiful marble table column. Also eagerly awaited is the reopening of Marcus Lucretius House that charmed Pablo Picasso and Leonide Massine, immortalized in that same garden by photographer Jean Cocteau in 1917.
