Six major Roman houses — or Domus — have been restored and reopened to the public in Pompeii.

The European Union put 100 million euros towards the renovation as part of the ‘Big Project Pompeii.’

Mosaics and wall decorations had been well-preserved thanks to the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, which submerged the city and stopped the deterioration of many buildings.
