Learn about the Ancient Roman history with a walk around Herculaneum and Pompeii.
The two settlements under the active Volcano Mount Vesuvius, show how ancient Roman villages were at the time of Emperor Tito.
They have important differences, that's why it is recommended visiting both. Pompeii offers a complete overview of an ancient Roman town plan. All the public buildings, the streets and the houses are now unearthed.
A part of Herculaneum remains are now buried under the new town buildings, that has grown on the same site as the previous settlement. The particular burial dynamics has allowed the preservation of organic materials, such as the hulls of a boat recovered on the beach, foods, wood elements and the upper floors of the buildings.
