Herculaneum is an ancient residential town of Greek origin that was destroyed and buried in ashes, along with Pompeii, by the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 A.D and offers a variety of beautiful scenery and invaluable artifacts. Excavations began by accident in 1709 when some workers were digging a well discovered a wall which was later found to be one of the stages of the ancient theatre.
