Parco Archeologico di Ercolano

$0 $0 per person

A UNESCO World Heritage Site together with the ruins of Pompeii and Oplontis, the archaeological site of Herculaneum is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Campania. Discovered by chance in the early 18th century, excavations began in 1738 but then stopped and were resumed on several occasions until 1927 when systematic excavations of the site finally started. Villa dei Papiri, a villa containing bronze and marble sculptures, the collection of papyri from Herculaneum, the House of the Mosaic Atrium and the House of the Deer all represent outstanding examples of the site’s cultural heritage: some of the finds brought to light by the excavations are on display at the National Archaeological Museum in Naples.
