TRAVEL TIPS TO ITALY
The Bad News: If you're visiting Rome, Nero's Golden House has been closed. Flooding and subsidence make it impossible to visit. It was only open for a couple of years but it will take a while to rehabilitate it.
The Good News: Mosaic experts have recreated the wonderful "Alexander vs Darius" picture mosaic and put it in place in the House of the Fawn in Pompeii. The original is still in the Naples Museum.
