On our last day in Naples we wandered the city in the morning, grabbed some pizza lunch, and headed to Herculean, the other city lost in the Vesuvius eruption. We had heard it was much easier to see everything, and much better preserved than Pompeii, and we only had time to go to one so we chose Herculean.
Walking through an ancient city was quite amazing. Even though they were a wealthier city, their society was so advanced. There were bath houses, beautiful gardens, every wall was covered with colourful frescoes (but not a lot remain), and the aqueducts distributed water to all the houses. Things weren’t so different, it seems. It was a nice note to finish on before checking out what Rome had to offer.
