One of the houses in Herculaneum that we had wanted to visit, but sadly was closed the day that we were there. Fortunately, nowhere near so many places are closed on a daily (or yearly) basis as at Pompeii.

Much of the house survives intact including mosaics and is typical of the state of preservation of the buildings at Herculaneum. This is one of the surviving ones with an upper storey and also a beautiful inner courtyard

Access to most parts of the House of the Beautiful Courtyard is severely restricted. You can't even get to the courtyard let alone the second floor. It should be an excellent site according to descriptions and pictures on the internet.
