The wealthy resort town of Herculaneum was home to around 5,000 people when Vesuvius erupted in 79 C.E. Most of the ancient Roman settlement is still buried under modern Ercolano, and the archaeological site can be visited in around an hour. As you walk the ancient streets where channels worn by cart wheels are still visible, highlights include the thermal bath complex, the Casa dei Cervi, Priapus’ Tavern, the Casa di Nettuno e Anfitrit and the Casa dell’Atrio a Mosaico.
