  • Visited La casa dello Scheletro back in October. Also known as the House of Skeletons is probably the first interesting house I saw after entering the site. It’s so named for the skeletal remains found in the house (which have since been moved). Despite the lack of skeletons, it’s worth wandering into the house as two of the rooms have niches decorated with frescoes, especially the blue coloured frescoes in the nymphaeum.
  • It was simply breathtaking!! And we had the BEST tour guide! If Pompeii is on your bucket list don't forget to visit the Herculaneum too!
