House of Vettii Closed?

by jmattingly

We are going to Pompeii in 2 weeks. Is the House of the Vettii closed? I would hate to miss seeing it!

You might find what you seek on the following contains all things Pompeii and is an excellent resource. Enjoy.

Re: House of Vettii Closed?

There are various and ongoing closures at Pompeii, for restoration, renovation or simply to minimise the effect of so very many visitors. One can never be quite sure what will be accessible on any given day.

I can find no mention of that particular house being closed on the official website:

You may be lucky, or you may find it closed (if only for the day of your visit). But Pompeii has so very much more to offer that you should not feel too disappointed if the Vettii is not accessible.

I'm guessing it still is as Rick Steve's May update noted that it "may open sometime this year." I spent some time googling news of the house and nothing comes up that announces that it's open again so...

When we were there 3 years ago, many of the houses (including the Vettii) were closed and there were still more excellent archeological sites than we could see in one day. Enjoy what's open - you'll have a marvelous time.

Travel Tips for Pompeii

Plaster Cast

by Cristian_Uluru

During your visit of the town of Pompeii you can find many plaster cast of the victim of the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D.
Few words are necessary to explain this method: liquid plaster is poured into the cavity left in the bed of ashes by the gradual decomposition of the victim's body. As the plaster solidifies, it reproduces the body's shape.

One of the entrances of the ruins


The ruins are opened from 9AM to 6PM in Summer (5Pm in Winter).
There is a parking nearby (3 euros/hour).
It needs at least 3 hours to make a visit. In some places you must wait to enter due to the number of visitors.
Some places are closed for restoration.
The main art works are now in the National Archeological Museum of Naples but the pompeian rooms are closed when we went there.

Some strange happenings

by paulapes

Pompeiian citizens were pretty interesting! We found out that they collected the town's urine and used it to bleach cloth---hopefully they rinsed the cloth VERY WELL afterward!

Also, they had a very liberal attitude toward sex....some of the pictures on the walls---well, I'm not going to describe them for you!! You'll just have to go and see for yourself.

They also had a system where they could flood the streets now and then to wash away all of the sewage and filth. I'm REALLY happy I'm living now and not then..................... See the nice clean streets, instead of what must have been just plain awful in Pompeii's heyday!

Historic Ruins of Pompei

by meteorologist1

The whole ancient excavated city of Pompei is like a big archaeology museum. You can get a pretty good idea about life in ancient Pompei when you leave. There's history associated with every site: temple, houses, theaters, etc. I believe my visit to Pompei was worth it.

Different houses in Pompei

by meteorologist1

There are houses, big and small, in the Ruins of Pompei. This can show you how the wealthy families lived and how the poor families lived. Some big houses can courtyards, some even swimming pools. These ancient houses make up a large part of the excavation of ancient Pompei.
