About Ercolano elsewhere
"The area was largely repopulated over the next 500 years, creating the small town of Resina ,named after the old sanctuary, with homes and neighborhoods being built above the uncovered ancient ruins of Herculaneum."
"Probably founded by Greek settlers under the name of Herakleion and later occupied by Oscans, Etruscans and Samnites, Herculaneum fell into Roman hands in 89 B.C. In A.D. 63 it suffered severe damage in an earthquake, and in A.D. 79 it was buried under ashes and pumice during an eruption of Vesuvius."
"Today less than half of Herculaneum has been excavated; with present-day Ercolano and the unlovely Resina Quarter (famous among bargain hunters as the area's largest secondhand-clothing market) sitting on top of the site, progress is limited."

About places near Ercolano
Sorrento is one of the best summer vacation destinations I've been to. Warm weather, oftern sunny, excellent views from the cliffs to the mediterranean sea. The food is good and there are lots restaurants in the city. A bit touristic though, but you can always rent a boat and get away of it all.
A beautiful island off the coast of Italy, very nice views from the cliffs and some extremely nice restaurants. The island is home for lots of jetsetters during the high season, with lots of life. A lot of high class designer clothes shops in the center to serve the rich and the needy in their quest to be fashionable. Be sure to check out the blue cave, although the locals charge you a whopping 10e for the entrance and a short look around the cave..
Not much to really see here. I refer to it as the "armpit of the Mediterranean" - it amazes me that people want to go here or are in awe of this place. Not much to see, if you do happen to end up here due to a cruise ship or other - leave Naples and you can you see how beautiful other parts of Italy really are. Many recommended places that are far nicer than Naples.

Be sure to go straight in Massa Lubrense, when you see the sign that looks like it says Delfino is to the left, it's not. The sign is a bit 'Italian' and not very clear.. :) We ended up driving around for an extra 45min. or so, but eventually got there.
Pompeii is easily approached by train from Sorrento and Napoli. The train station is right at the door of the area. If you like history and wandering around ancient ruins, this place is a goldmine. The area is quite big and there is a good amount of things to see, expect to spend at least a couple of hours there. You can get a leaflet that explains what each building was, which opens up the ancient Roman life a bit more. There are also audio guides available for cost. The ruins of Amphitheatre and some of the other buildings are quite well preserved and you can almost hear the people of ancient Pompeii chatting and watching the show, really amazing.
