"Ercolano" Herculaneum Off The Beaten Path Tip by sim1
Herculaneum Off The Beaten Path: 14 reviews and 19 photos
On the same day I visited Pompeii, I also went to Ercolano. Ercolano (or also called Herculaneum) is quite similar to Pompeii, but not as well known. Herculaneum/Ercolano is located in the city of Napoli and can be reached by train very easily. I don't remember how long it took to get from one site to the other, but I am guessing that it was about an hour. Ercolano was destroyed with the same eruption of the Vesuvius as Pompeii, and was buried under ash deposited by a pyroclastic flow.
In this picture you can see Ercolano, but in the background you can see the city of Naples surrounding this historical site. Please take a look at the rest of my 'off the beaten path' tips to read all about my visit to Ercolano.
