Ercolano: Herculaneum Priority Entrance Ticket

1. Ercolano: Herculaneum Priority Entrance Ticket

Gain instant access to the ancient Roman town of Herculaneum with your priority entrance ticket. Herculaneum was buried under ash after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD but, unlike the nearby site of Pompeii, a lot of the town was preserved: roofs, beds, doors, food, and even 300 skeletons. Walk the cobbled streets of this UNESCO World Heritage Site and get a glimpse of what life was like before the devastating eruption. Marvel at artifacts that have kept their original form for almost 2000 years.  Explore intact buildings at your own pace, see well-preserved frescoes and imagine the daily rituals of those using the shops, public gymnasium, and public swimming baths that can still be seen today.

2. Herculaneum: 3D Walking Tour with Skip-the-Line Ticket

Wear your Augmented Reality smart glasses and enjoy a unique, innovative, and immersive walking tour at the archaeological site of Herculaneum. Travel back to 79 AC and see what Herculaneum's squares and houses looked like before being destroyed in a volcanic eruption. Meet your tour leader at Herculaneum main entrance and get kitted out with your glasses before listening to a quick introduction to how to use them. Then, begin your tour which has been designed by an archaeologist team to show you what life was like in Herculaneum before the eruption. The software of the glasses creates holograms that overlap the existing ruins, showing what the most significant temples, houses, and buildings originally looked like. Cast yourself into the bygone age of ancient life in Herculaneum, walking through the city to feel like a Roman.

Naples: Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Mount Vesuvius Tour

3. Naples: Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Mount Vesuvius Tour

Following your tour pickup, you will make your way south to explore the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Stroll through the streets of the Roman city of Pompeii and check the numerous different UNESCO archaeological sites, such as the Herculaneum. Both archaeological sites feature the excavated ruins of alleyways and homes where you are free to explore. These locations are also fascinating in that archaeologists are still continuing to unearth the remains of a place forever locked in time. Following your exploration of the ruins, drive up to Mount Vesuvius, the volcano that destroyed Pompeii 2,000 years ago. You can stop to enjoy the view of the Bay of Naples from the top, as you enjoy a delicious lunch. If you are a hiking and history lover, this Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Mount Vesuvius tour is all you need.

What people are saying about Ercolano

Absolutely amazing place. Lots more to see than you would think. They have done a fantastic job restoring it. The colours on the frescoes and the artifacts in the museum give you such an insight into what it was like in Herculaneum

Really interesting place. More open buildings than Pompeii and a more manageable size to cover in a few hours. Highly recommended. Quite a walk down the hill from the train station though. Especially on the way back after.

The site is easy to navigate. The exhibits on display are well documented and informative. An excellent half day activity.
