Herculaneum

Herculaneum

Herculaneum was destroyed with Pompeii when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79AD. Less well-known than Pompeii, it has fewer visitors. The ruins here are better preserved as it was buried in a mudslide rather than hot ash. Explore the site with a map or audio guide to see Roman baths, beautiful mosaics and villas.
