The residential town along the Bay Naples in 79 A.D. when the devastating fury of the volcano Vesuvius buried the whole area at the foot of it. Herculaneum was buried by a torrential lava of mud mixed to volcanic materials. Smaller than Pompeii, but not less interesting. Here in fact you can see not only the same kind of buildings of Pompeii but better preserved artistic elements (mosaics, frescoes, and original timber of the roofs).
