House of Augustus opens to public

Man, I'd love to see this. There is more info on the BBC website.

Another new site to visit opens in Rome this week. It’s four rooms of the House of the first Emperor Augustus on the Palatine hill, never on show to the public before. Some parts of this building have opened from time to time, but those bits which you might have seen in the past are currently closed. The plan is that in due course, when conservation has finished, they will open again to join this new section.
