A Tour of Pompeii to Treasure

Visit Herculaneum, The Seaside Resort Lost in Time
Pompeii was first discovered in the 16th century, and over the years that followed, thieves would enter the town to make away with valuables, like marble and sculpture. Herculaneum, buried under a thicker layer of volcanic rock, was spared from this disgrace.
Today, the wealth of this once bustling seaside resort is immediately evident. The town is resplendent with remarkable mosaics, in expensive marble and black lava rock – a decoration that terribly foreshadows the horrible fate of Herculaneum’s citizen.
Walk through Herculaneum to see the treasures left behind; remnants of fast food places, laundrettes, bath houses, hotels, swimming pools and the villas of the wealthy. See the skeletons of those who tragically died there, huddled together under arches in their final hours.
