The village of frescos

Herculaneum was a small fishing village but it now underneath the town of Ercolano on the outskirts of Naples. We took the local coastal train from Sorrento to Ercolano which wasn’t far and it was easy to find Herculaneum from the train station. It’s amazing how so much of it has survived with quite a few vibrant frescos to see and even two story buildings. It’s a much smaller place to walk around than Pompeii. It’s surprising to think that this village was on the coast as it’s quite far in land now.
