Your guide will lead you into the streets of the town, showing you the magnificence of the houses and the timeless beauty of the Baths, but what will leave you breathless is the condition of the wooden doors and furniture, still standing, though burned and charred by the lava. Your guide will explain to you in detail the habits of the local population, comparing Herculaneum to nearby Pompeii, whose lifestyle was completely different.
