Cities and Towns in Campania

 

At the feet of Mount Vesuvius, in an area blessed with a superb mild climate, Herculaneum is known throughout the world for the remains of its Roman city buried, along with Pompei, under the ashes provoked by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D.

At the archaeological site of Herculaneum it is possible to visit the House of Argo, theHouse of the Deer, the House of the Gem, the House of the Bicentenary, the House of the Mosaic, the House of the Relief of Telephus, the House of the Carbonized Partition, the House of the Mosaic Atrium, the Samnite House, the Gymnasium, the Theatre, theBaths, the Suburban Baths and the Villa of the Papyrus.

As well as being site of great archaeological interest, Herculaneum has a flourishing economy thanks to its agricultural industry, and in particular its floricultural industry, responsible for one of Italy's most prolific productions of carnations and roses. Herculaneum is an important port with small fleet of fishing boats and merchant ships which provides employment for a great number of the town's inhabitants. At the large market of Pugliano both new and used items of clothing are sold.
