Stroll among the remains of the Roman town buried in the same volcanic eruption that destroyed Pompeii. Although significantly smaller than the nearby ancient city, Herculaneum is much better preserved, having been encased in mud and lava for centuries. Ongoing excavations have revealed mosaics, wall paintings, wooden elements, foodstuffs, fabrics and other artifacts that, together with your guide's commentary, form an intimate look at life in a seaside resort 2,000 years ago.
• Structures and Artifacts: Upper stories of buildings and houses, wooden beds and doors - even food - remain intact.
