Herculaneum Archaeological Area, City of Naples, Italy
Ercolano, known to many as Herculaneum is just a few miles from Pompeii and 150 miles south of Rome, close to Naples. In many respects Ercolano is a smaller version of Pompeii, both are buried Roman cities that have been remarkably preserved when excavated. A lot of people prefer Ercolano to Pompeii as its a much more compact site and has significantly less visitors.The partially buried Roman town-city of Ercolano is part of a set of five archeological sites in the area.
