It could be the perfect place to spend Valentine’s Day.

The House of the Chaste Lovers, named after a fresco on the site, opens in the ancient town of Pompeii in southern Italy this weekend – but only until and including February 14.

Then it will close to allow restoration work to continue as part of a multi-million euro preservation project for Pompeii.

Last year, the Roman town, famously buried under volcanic ash in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, welcomed a record 3.2 million visitors.
