Although less known than its sister city Pompeii, Herculaneum is another victim of Mount Vesuvius’ ferocious eruption in 79 AD. The town of Herculaneum, just like the city of Pompeii, was completely buried under scorching pyroclastic material and only rediscovered in 1709 by workers digging a well. If you choose this excursion, you will get the opportunity of visiting what is left of a town where life suddenly stopped. Due to several factors, both Pompeii and Herculaneum laid in air tight conditions for over 1700 years which means that you will be able to see buildings and objects which seem to be stuck in a time capsule.
