Things to know about Herculaneum
The excavations of Herculaneum have given us unparalleled insight into Roman life, as they have brought to light the ruins of the Roman city destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD.
Always considered the "younger sister" of Pompeii, as it is smaller and less known, Herculaneum was located nearby the sea: because of its location and its beautiful views, it was conceived as a resort for the rich Romans of the area, whose presence is testified by lots of archaeological remains.
The volcanic materials of the eruption buried Herculaneum up to 23 meters, creating a perfect state of preservation for the entire city: a tour of the Herculaneum excavations will allow you to visit the spa complex, the gym and the private homes, some of which are located in a scenic location in front of the sea.
