  • Here my daughter and I had an incident with an American woman. (put an umbrella in the face, impidiendole pass) _ us not had Guide and or both, libres__ the problem here for whatever it is, is a "mob entering curiosity" to a prostulo of the time, highly conserved, and is a literal agglomeration "orderly" symbolically speaking: a real Tower of babel, where everyone wants to "see" the fresh top erotic near the roof which advertised the "specialities" of prostitutes and dubbed. The surgery, small buardilla, acogia a bed of stone, stuck on a side wall. Of course, had over its corresponding, amenity. "" In the hot springs public there if there is controversy, its frescoes announce orgeys there who contradicts, referring is a "don't forget me, put your clothes" however has been tourists caught "red-handed" near the fresco and poorly named by the "curious young"... the little train (sic.). Apparently, still influencing people. The popular among the popular name: Restitutta. And of course, its cortespondiente and indecent, graffiti. Restitutta... etc... etc.

  • Prostitution was permitted and to some extent encouraged in ancient Pompeii. It can be seen in various locations of the ruins and signs, still preserved for the exercise of "the world's oldest profession". The Lupanar, brothel in Latin language, has paintings in good condition that indicate to the visitor the options of the services offered at the time, in addition to the rooms and beds in stone that were used at the time. The site is signposted with erotic pieces, even with indications of their location in nearby streets. It is very interesting to visit.

  • Like today, even at the time of the ancient Romans, the men were seeking diversions to humdrum family life. Now we know that they were not only of Dour conquerors before Italy and Europe as a whole, but thought to enjoy life. Indeed women, foreign to the ancient Romans also liked how! What can we say? The world is still the same. And I add that the brothel (in Italian: brothel) is one of the most visited places of Pompeii and also (despite the use by citizens of Pompeii) one of the best preserved.

  • Magnificent! It seems like a time has stopped! Must visit and dedicate at least one day to this amazing gift of history!
  • If you are so much into ruins, then maybe you will enjoy this... but for me the history is not too deep to appreciate it. To summarize it all 1. highlight the signs on the rocks / historical red light district (the menu) 2. dirtiest job, laundry using urine 3. rocks 4. burnt people from the volcanic eruption 5. more rocks, rocks, rocks Visited March 2015
  • Popular site in Pompeii. Smaller than expected though.
  • One of my favorite buildings in Pompeii. Not a place for prudes.
  • This is so beautiful!
