One of the places we wanted to see but although the courtyard was visible they seemed to be working on the inner baths so not possible to have a good look around. Shame but important to realise this is very much a “live” site so...More

One of the places that we had really looked forward to seeing in Herculaneum, but sadly it was closed on the day that we were there. At least in Herculaneum, there are nowhere near so many places closed as in Pompeii.
