This city, just like Pompeii, was at the same time destroied and preserved by the disaster. Pyroclastic flows covered Herculaneum with a mountain of boiling ash, hiding the remains of the ancient city 70 feet underground.
Today, almost 2000 years later, the charm of Herculaneum is still intact. The city was a residential spot for wealthy people. Smaller but richer than Pompeii. Traces of the affluence of the ancient Herculaneum are still visible in the original style and in the elegant decoration of the private houses. Herculaneum is different than Pompeii also for the state of preservation. The two cities were destroyed by the same eruption but the effects were not alike. Visiting Herculaneum is the best way to take an intimate look at the lifestyle of the rich in the ancient Roman world.
After the visit, your private driver will drive you straight to your spot.
