Pompeii may be the more famous of the two towns destroyed by the volcano eruption from Vesuvius in 79 AD, but Herculaneum is better preserved than Pompeii, and considered the most preserved ancient city in Italy. However, because it is less famous, there are fewer visitors and you’ll be able to take in the city and the gravity of its destruction without the crowds. The site is accessible by train and car.
