Pompeii and Herculaneum have met with exactly the same historical fate: they have been destroyed at the same time by same event, the eruption of the Vesuvius volcano. The two towns are also close to each other. But Pompeii is a much more popular place. Pompei gets nine (!) time more visitors than Herculaneum. Is its so much mire interesting? No is the answer. In fact, if anything, one might even argue that Herculaneum is a better place. It is a smaller place, and therefore easier to grasp, some details are better preserved and, also, it’s much closer to the city of Naples.
Located in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, Herculaneum (Italian: Ercolano) was an ancient Roman town destroyed by volcanic pyroclastic flows in 79 AD. Its ruins are located in the commune of Ercolano, Campania, Italy.
Herculaneum was an ancient Roman town fossilized following the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD.
