What people are saying:

The ancient city of Herculaneum is located 8 kilometers southeast of Naples, Italy. In 79 AD, Mount Vesuvius erupted, Herculaneum and the ancient city of Pompeii not far away were flooded by volcanic ash. The ancient city was discovered at the beginning of the eighteenth century, and then archaeological excavations were carried out. The excavation and clean-up work is still in progress. There are still a large number of ruins and monuments buried deep underground. Because Herculaneum is buried deep by volcanic ash, the buildings in the city, including public facilities, streets, sculptures, squares, bathrooms, houses, etc., are kept in their original state. Even the murals and mosaic floors in the houses are well preserved. The colors are still pretty.
