What can I expect?

When Mt. Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, the town of Pompeii was quickly buried in ash. The neighboring town of Herculaneum (Ercolano in Italian), being upwind, was destroyed over 12 hours later when a 400° C blast of searing ash, pumice, rock, and volcanic gas blew north. At that moment, the town was stopped in time.

Herculaneum has been better preserved than Pompeii, and was the wealthier of the two. That wealth is on full display here: in the marble of the bathhouses, in the furniture, even in the preserved items of clothing. Visitors can see the old arena, as big as a city block, and the Palestra (Main Hall), which was home to a towering statue of Hercules, hence the town's name.
