No water in Ercolano! (until Friday 8th May)

Just to warn anyone planning a visit to Herculaneum this week - wait until Friday!
The entire modern city of Ercolano has no water for three days (starting Tuesday 5th May in the afternoon, with nothing Wednesday 6th and Thursday 7th).
The Soprintendenza already has chemical toilets in place, but with about 900 visitors a day at the moment and a hot sun heating the plastic cubicles up, you're probably better waiting for water services to resume on Friday.
Local shops have done their best to stock up on extra supplies of bottled water, but obviously with a whole city of people buying them up - you should think about bringing your own.
Please sympathise with those of us who have to carry on working regardless!
