The mosaics of the temple are in excellent condition for 2,000 years old, the colors are very rich and a part of life and expression of a cultured society.

Not totally destroyed and lost by the eruption of Vesuvius. Preserved in the volcanic muds that enveloped the city.

This house must’ve been owned by a wealthy individual for its large size and opulence. Several rooms have been so well preserved that they’re identifiable even to a non specialist, including bedrooms, kitchens, dining rooms and latrines. By far the most outstanding decoration is the fresco depicting the Roman deities, Neptune and Amphitrite. One of the best buildings to see inside the archaeological site.

This is the best preserved and clearest mosaic on the Herculaneum site. It is towards the top of the second street from the left as you go into the site. You don't expect to see such a wonder when you go through the small house entrance from the cobbled street.
if you are able to, you will see more and better preserved mosaics in the National Archeological museum in Naples. I particularly remember the fantastic mosaics there which were originally in the House of the Faun from Pompeii. They give you an idea of the luxury and opulence that houses of the wealthy had at that time.

One of the highlights of Herculaneum is this mosaic. While many other pieces have been moved to the museum in Naples, they did leave this wonderful mosaic.

Do not miss - well it is difficult to miss anything here as the site is no way as big as Pompeii. Get hold of the little red Parerco guide book which is free - it is a particularly good guide.

Absolutely not to miss. This site is much more maneageabl then Pompei and you see pretty much the same thing. Highly recommended. If you go by car, part at their parking lot. Do not be tempted by cheaper options around the site because they are not insured. The site parking lot is very convenient and secured.

We visited the House of Neptune and Amphitrite today whilst in Herculaneum and were left utterly amazed at how something so beautiful could have survived such tragedy.

The glass paste wall mosaic of Neptune and Amphitrite really steals the show here and is one of the biggest memories having left the Herculaneum site. The north side is occupied by a nymphaeum also made with glass paste mosaic and shells and lava foam.

This HAS to be seen whilst at Herculaneum!

When my husband and I saw this stunning mosaic during our time in the Ercolano ruins, we both gasped in unison. The brilliant color was so unexpected. It is amazing that it has been preserved and we are able to see it today.
