*HERCULANEUM, ITALY ~ and Vesuvius, province of Naples, Campania. I cannot believe how many people skip Herculaneum and go to Pompei instead! I LOVED the tour of "Erculano" as the Italians call it. It is located right in Naples!
I have been to Naples three times now and each time found different things to do in this most marvellous and misunderstood of Mediterranean cities. It is such an affordable and rewarding city break with a spectacular setting on the Bay of Naples.
