Subject: Ercolano and Pompei
Hello Marco, As you point out, people should not miss Ercolano. We went to both Ercolano and Pompei 2 years ago. We were blown away by Ercolano, where we could see charred beams in the ceilings, walk on the mosaics of the ancient Baths, see a lot of restoration going on, and generally get the feeling of being in a small Roman town much mroe than you can at Pompei. I also very much endorse your suggestion of visiting the fumarole near Pozzuoli (named Solfatara), and the archeological dig of Cumae. Doug Birmingham, England
