About: Herculaneum

Step into life before the Vesuvius eruption with a visit to Herculaneum (Ercolano in Italian). This ancient Roman town lies in the shadows of Mount Vesuvius, and was once wealthier than Pompeii. Both towns were destroyed by volcanic flows in 79 AD. Pompeii is well-preserved but Herculaneum is even more so - the eruption preserved doors, bedding and even food here. This UNESCO World Heritage site allows you to explore several villas and taverns and examine the mosaics and frescoes preserved for centuries by the volcanic water, ash and debris.

Pompeii was lost to us for many centuries until it was rediscovered again, initially in 1599, and properly in the 1700s. It is one of the world's greatest archaeological sites. The volcanic eruption wiped out the population of Pompeii, but the town they lived in was remarkably well-preserved because of the combination of ash and lack of moisture that sealed the town, and essentially turned it into a time capsule.
