Full description

Enjoy views of the Italian countryside as you travel with your guide to one of the ancient cities uncovered from a volcanic disaster. Learn about the history of the city from your guide, and enjoy lunch at a vineyard before heading back to Ercolano.

Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Herculaneum, where the preserved ancient city holds some of the original organic objects of its era from before AD 79. See the food, wooden beds, doors and houses, and other almost completely preserved objects during your guided tour.

Learn about how the city was uncovered in the 18th century, and how it was a precursor to the discovery of Pompeii by decades. Your guide will then deliver you to a local winery, where you can enjoy the views of a typical vineyard in Italy, along with lunch overlooking the Gulf of Naples.

Once the tour and dining are over, relax on your complementary drive back to your accommodation.

, The experience went well, however with quite a few hitches. During lunch we were told several times that we would not have the passage for the return and that we would be paying € 50 each. A nice surprise being that we were at the foot of Vesuvius in the middle of who knows where. However, the return was already scheduled from the tour to the Place for pick-up that had been in Herculaneum (instead it had to be in Portici. So it was not even for the outward journey, having to use one's own means even though the pick-up from the Hotel). I appreciate the willingness to listen and to find a solution after two denials. It went well. After a ride in the van and one in the car picked up off the highway, we arrived in Herculaneum and then managed to get to Portici by our own means. It was certainly a logistical experience! Very enjoyable lunch.
