One of Pompeii's most famous houses -- Casa degli Amorini Dorati -- is reopening after more than 10 years of renovation.
The House of the Flying Cupids, reopening April 3, is said to be one of the best examples of the age of the Emperor Nero, the Italian news agency ANSA reported.
Built in the third century B.C., the house was restyled several times before the 79 A.D. eruption of Vesuvius that buried the entire city in volcanic ash.
The house will be open by online reservation only at www.arethusa.net.
