In contrast to modern Ercolano, classical Herculaneum was a peaceful fishing and port town of about 4000 inhabitants, and something of a resort for wealthy Romans and Campanians.
Herculaneum’s fate paralleled that of nearby Pompeii. Destroyed by an earthquake in AD 63, it was completely submerged in the AD 79 eruption of Mt Vesuvius. However, as it was much closer to the volcano than Pompeii, it drowned in a 16m-thick sea of mud rather than in the lapilli (burning pumice stone) and ash that rained down on Pompeii. This essentially fossilised the town, ensuring that even delicate items, like furniture and clothing, were discovered remarkably well preserved.
The town was rediscovered in 1709 and amateur excavations were carried out intermittently until 1874, with many finds being carted off to Naples to decorate the houses of the well-to-do or to end up in museums. Serious archaeological work began again in 1927 and continues to this day.
The walking tour of Naples is structured around the cornerstones of Neapolitan culture and tradition and it will hinge around its roots, its history, its castles and its kings, the imposing Maschio Angioino which is one of the most important castles of the city, the Castel dell’Ovo, loved by the roman poet Virgilio, the wonderful Plebiscito’s square, the Saint Carlo Theatre, the magnificent Royal Palace and the Umberto I Gallery, and while you walk around you can look through the city alleys and its typical views, with strings of clothes suspended among the buildings.
Naples is also its flavors, the products that have made it famous all around the world, first of all, the creation of the Neapolitan chef Raffaele Esposito: the delicious Pizza, born in the 1780, which will be enjoyed walking in the charming district of via dei tribunali, few steps away from the Duomo of Naples, where the treasure of the patron saint San Gennaro is preserved, and where every year the miracle of the blood liquefaction takes place.
After the pizza, you can’t miss the tipical neapolitan homemade dessert Babbà, while you let yourself be charmed by the streets of Saint Gregorio Armeno, cradle of a very special art, the street of the nativity scene makers.
While you taste the typical street products made in naples such as taralli, crocchè, frittatine you will be amazed by the beautiful piazza del gesù Nuovo, San Domenico, and the Majolica Cloister of Santa Chiara monastery
