"Ravin' Ruins (pompei/herculaneum)" Day trip to Herculaneum - Ercolano Tip by naplesnate
Day trip to Herculaneum - Ercolano, Naples: 13 reviews and 31 photos
Both cities were destroyed by the Vesuvius eroption in AD 79, pompei largely affected by the ash fall from the eruption and herculaneum by the mud slides that followed the quake.
Both of these sites offer very compelling glimpses of what a thriving roman city would have looked like in its glory days.
Pompei is the larger of the two and tends to be the preferred one due to its size and added sites such as its impressive amphitheater.
Pompei is much more accessible to tourists too, the whole town revolves around the ruins and can offer more tourist guidebooks, tourist menus and tourist parking than you could imagine.
The circumvesuviana (main station is Piazza Garibaldi) also has stops by both sites.
