Boscoreale, located about a kilometer north of Pompeii, was also massively impacted by Vesuvius’ 79 AD eruption.

In antiquity, aristocrats owned beautiful villas in Boscoreale which was a more-rural suburb of Pompeii. Its name, meaning “Royal Forest,” is based on actions by the Kings of Naples who preserved the area as a hunting park.
