Herculaneum was a small, rich and noble Italian city that overlooked the sea. During the visit you will admire houses, baths, streets, fountains with their decorations, frescoes, mosaics and the skeletons of the victims. The city was destroyed by a terrible eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. and was totally buried by pyroclastic avalanches which preserved it for centuries until it was rediscovered in 1710 by a local farmer named Ambrogio Nocerino.
