Visit Herculaneum


The main characteristic of which is the ruins of Herculaneum was submerged under a layer of lava and mud, unlike Pompeii, which was hit by ash and lapilli. Lava and mud went on to form a tuff layer, which guaranteed a better conservation of the city, for this vision of Herculaneum excavations allows to further appreciate the

particularities of the time, from tools to equipment, even to entertainment sites. The best known building is the atrium house mosaic, but it is not the only one.

years later. Visit Herculaneum means give completeness to their historical and cultural tours, enriching not only culturally, but also spiritually.
