Our journey takes us along the gorgeous coastal road through Castellammare di Stabia and out along the highway to Herculaneum. Herculaneum was destroyed along with Pompei in 79 AD, and rediscovered in 1709.
It was a residential town without Pompei's commercial importance, surrounded by the villas of the wealthy Romans.When the catastrophe of 79 AD occurred Herculaneum was submerged under a torrent of mud and lava that hardened into a soft tufa (a kind of course rock) that preserved many of the timber features and household objects which can be seen today. A large portion of the old Herculaneum is still buried under the modern town and even today excavations are going on to discover what treasures lie buried under the rock, to the extent that some families are being rehoused so work can continue.

"Arrangements to meet the coach were chaotic. Lots of coahes in the park, no one knowing which coach they should be on, everyone had differenct vouchers and none of the coahes displayed any tour operator logo. Guides did there best to sort things out but quite frankly we could have been on any coach."
