Discover the extraordinarily preserved interior furnishings of the houses in Herculaneum.


Before the 79 AD eruption, the village of Herculaneum was spread over 20 hectares, with a population of 4. 000 inhabitants. Rich Romans spent their holidays there. In fact, it's still possible to see the orientation of the houses in front of the sea. The special conditions of Herculaneum burial allowed the preservation of organic materials and decorative elements. Vegetables, foods, fabrics, interior furnishings of the houses and wood elements are still visible in the 4. 5 hectares open-air archaeological site.
