  • Excavations at Ercolano, found in um better state of conservation, with respect to the one of Pompeii. It is a place not to be missed to meet, and should make both visits (Ercolano and Pompei) during the day, leaving early from Rome - Termini (are two trains with combination among them). He is consulted at Termini to get tickets.

  • Better to see Pompei and look at Ercolano only from the above (for free) as best locations (villa and baths) are closed for public anyway.
  • We came here with our 2 year old baby girl. All of us had a great time. You can walk around and really enjoy and appreciate the way people lived back in the day without a huge crowd surrounding you while you take your time, I think of all the pictures I took only one or two had another person in it that were not us, we had the place for ourselves. The walk from the train station is really easy and pleasant, the people of Ercolano are super nice
  • I prefer Ercolano over Pompei. Less crowded, and because of a difference in how the city was destroyed, there is a greater level of preservation. One interesting difference is much of the wood beaming was preserved by the volcanic ash, not totally consumed by fire. As is the Italian norm, staff levels are diminished due to the country's financial difficulties. As a result, some exhibits are closed.
  • "Mini Pompeii" offers an amazing look into history. This coastal town has a different feel to the bustling Pompeii.
  • Definitely worth the stop, not least because this site gets a tiny portion of the tourists as the expansive Pompeii
