Herculaneum
Ercolano (once Herculaneum and later Resina) is a lovely city located about 8 kilometers south-east of Naples. Known since ancient times as a center of culture and art, Ercolano is among the Vesuvian cities the richest in history, art and natural landmarks.

Located in the center of the beautiful Gulf of Naples, the city extends from the sea to the summit of the volcano Vesuvius. From its territory you can enjoy amazing panoramic views over the entire Gulf of Naples that have no equal in the world.

In the center of the town you can visit the Archaeological Site of ancient Herculaneum, the city completely buried by the well-known eruption of Mount Vesuvius, in 79 AD.
The city of Resina which prospered as a holiday resort
town until recent times, was built on the buried ancient city of Herculaneum.

Demetra
Rediscovered in 1709 and raised from the ashes starting from 1738, Herculaneum has only been partially unearthed but it is
excellently preserved. The visit of the ancient city is an extraordinary experience that allows us to have an idea of ​​the luxury, refinement and high cultural level reached by the rich inhabitants of this splendid town in the shadow of the volcano.


Walking through the ancient streets, entering the houses, abandoned by the inhabitants at the time of the eruption, observing the beautiful well-preserved frescoed walls, the charred woods, the numerous mosaics and various objects still present in the superb dwellings, is an amazing experience which gives the impression of traveling back in time.
