Smaller than Pompeii but equally devastated by the disastrous eruption of Mount Vesuvius, the preserved town of Herculaneum offers a fascinating glimpse into a different layer of ancient Roman life.
Site itself is worth visiting - just take a private tour. The guide on the ship's tour was awful! He was an older gentleman and he seemed to have trouble walking. He barely spoke and I think he didn't take us to the lower level because he couldn't walk well.

Fascinating excavation! We had a super guide who gave us, only nine of us, a wonderful, informative tour.
