Herculaneum, Italy


Herculanium Pompeii Naples Italy history ruins travel vacation

Herculaneum is amazingly preserved and walking through its streets you can really imagine what life would have been like. But with only other tourists around it does feel a little eerie, and when you come across a preserved wooden cot the sadness of the Vesuvius catastrophe really hits home.

Top tip for Herculaneum: Arrive very early. But if the question if wether to choose Pompeii or here; my advice is go to both as they are both very different and visiting both sites gives you a broader picture, and the frescos are better preserved at Herculaneum.
