Herculaneum's Suburban Baths re-open

No official news is out yet, but it seems that the Soprintendenza has quietly re-opened the Suburban Baths at Herculaneum several years after their closure for emergency works following a collapsed vault. For those who haven't have the chance to see the baths - which are truly special - these images give some hint of what they are like.

It also seems that the new Boat Exhibit will also be open full time for visits from this summer. Both these places have suffered from a lack of custodians who are needed to open more areas of site.
