Herculaneum Travel Guide: 100 reviews and 376 photos


When the Volcano Mount Vesuvius erupted on 24 August 79 AD the erupting Ash, lava and debre engulfed the two busy Roman towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum as well as many smaller Towns, Villages and Roman villas.
These ruins have been uncoverd slowly since the mid 18th century and made accessible to the public.

I just loved herculanieum, and like Pompeii i took loads of pictures and have so much that i want to write but just don't have the time.

    Missed Herculaneum when we visited the area a couple years ago, but have heard & now seen how great it is. Also much greener & less dusty than Pompeii apparently.
