Staff member
A spectacular restoration project at Pompeii means visitors can now visit the famed House of Lovers for the first time in 40 years.
The building is one of the best-known attractions at Pompeii, the ancient city buried in 79 AD after nearby Mount Vesuvius erupted.
It was shut to visitors in 1980 after suffering damage in an earthquake, but has now reopened as part of the Great Pompeii project, which launched in 2014 with the aim of safeguarding the ancient city.
