Even if it is not as well-known or as large as Pompeii, the town of Herculaneum has been magically conserved for centuries and its ruins are better preserved than Pompeii ones. Extremely impressive and gripping, at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, the city was the volcano’s first victim, remaining under the layers of ash and mud without decaying. Definitely worth visiting this UNESCO World Heritage Site where visitors will be able to feel the real sense of the great splendor of this superb Roman town.
