For those of you that find yourselves in La Belle France this holiday season, be sure not to miss "Pompei: Un Art de Vivre," a special exhibition at the Musée Maillol, in Paris, until February 12, 2012. This exhibition features beautiful artifacts from the luxurious homes-- the celebrated "domus pompeiana"--of Pompeii's elite. Furnished with over two hundred items from Pompeii as well as some from the neighboring towns and villages around of Naples, this is a comprehensive and illuminating look at the urban lives of Roman patricians. For more information, please click here to read Jorg von Uthmann's review of the exhibition for Bloomberg.
