Pompeii: closed for union meeting ahead of holiday
Text size Aa Aa

Tourists were surprised to find the ancient archaeological site of Pompeii closed on Friday morning ahead of the holiday period. The gates were closed at 9 am for a meeting of members of four unions. Italy’s Culture Minister Dario Franceschini said the action had caused “incalculable damage” to Pompeii by alienating visitors.
