Even Herculaneum, like Pompeii, was destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD
The state in which the city of Herculaneum was preservation, is however even better, in fact the city was not only buried by lava and ash, but also by a massive blanket of mud that created a layer of tufa, which has allowed an amazing favorable conservation.
More than 10 meters of tufa have sheltered not only the buildings, but also objects, tools, artifacts, and even wood.
It goes without saying that visiting Pompeii without visiting Herculaneum will leaves a sense of incompleteness in the rediscovery of Roman times. The city was mostly a vacation spot, and you will find spas, gyms, several houses and frescoes.
Pompeii, Herculaneum and Vesuvius, are – to date – impressible sites one nicer than the other and give the opportunity to enrich one’s culture, as well as give memories of unforgettable days.
