Open House

Two rooms in the House of Augustus on the Palatine Hill will be reopened to the public later this year, acccording to this tourism story. Of course, if you talk to the right people, you can get in right now.

The Italy Magazine piece says the site is being "reopened" for the first time since 1961, but if that's accurate, the first opening must have been a very limited engagement. Time Magazine's online archive includes a 1961 story on the discovery and original excavations.
