Located in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, Herculaneum takes its name from the Greek hero Heracles (Hercules in Roman mythology) as ancient inhabitants of Greek origins believed Heracles / Hercules was the founder of the town and Mount Vesuvius.
Along with Pompeii, Herculaneum was destroyed in 79 AD by volcanic pyroclastic flows when the massive Mount Vesuvius erupted, and left buried for centuries under about 20 meters of ash.
Unlike Pompeii that was covered with volcanic ash, the super hot pyroclastic material that covered Herculaneum carbonized and preserved perishable objects such as food, and wood on roofs, bed and doors. This resulted in more frescoes and mosaics that can be admired in preserved buildings like in the House of Neptune and Amphitrite, and the Villa of the Papyri.
Although smaller than Pompeii, the town of Herculaneum was wealthier with far more lavish homes so visitors have the opportunity to enjoy the ancient remains of lavish buildings, frescoes and mosaics. As Herculaneum is much smaller than Pompeii and less crowded, visitors have the opportunity to explore most of the site on a single visit which is impossible to do in Pompeii on limited time.
