Parco Archeologico di Ercolano is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Italy. Located in Ercolano, this is known to be the sister-site to Pompeii. When Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 A.D., it destroyed and buried the entire town of Herculaneum. Even though Pompeii and Herculaneum were destroyed in the same eruptions, the ways in which each city suffered are different. It is believed that more than 60% of Herculaneum is still not uncovered. Exploring the remains at Parco Archeologico di Ercolano will give you a glimpse of ancient Roman life.
