The town of Herculaneum is in some ways more fascinated than Pompeii, the quality of the archeological finds is incredible. During the entire visit you can admire the petrified pyroclastic mud river that destroyed the town in a few minutes and the modern ERCOLANO that overlooks the entire archeological site as a lookout. the contrast with what was destroyed her and what was hidden her for centuries is what still impress me after years that I have the honor of showing this place to my clients.
Ercolano was a rich holiday resort, located infront of the Island of Capri, under the Vesuvinum, the Winehill( so the inhabitants of the area called the Vesuvius, the did not know that he was an activ Vulcano) favourite place of important politician of Rome, Naples and Pompeij Herculaneum offers a great number of houses beautiful decorated, a female and mal bath, the forum and an extraodinary palestra with an incredible pool. Visiting Ercolano is important to understand the multiple aspects of a vulcanic Eruption, and the different archeological results.
