Full description
This tour will take you on a guided visit of the world’s best preserved Roman city, Herculaneum. This was a rich city of merchants and nobility, whose lives ended dramatically fast with the eruption of Mount Vesuvius nearly 2,000 years ago.  See the waterfront, where the remains of more than 300 people lie, who died trying to escape by sea. Explore the Samnite house, the thermal baths, the Temple of the Augustales, and the Forum. Discover the house of Neptune and Amphitrite, the Gymnasium, and much more. During this experience you can see not only stone, marble, and ceramics that survived the eruption, but also carbonized wood, and paintings and mosaics even more exquisite than those found in Pompeii. Learn about life in this city, and the blast that destroyed it, on this 2-hour guided tour.

This tour was amazing. Our guide was Luciano and he was informative, fun and very knowledgable. The tour was exactly as described and his English was very good. We preferred this over Pompeii because the tour was so detailed and informative as he had so much knowledge from actually working on the sites. This tour was the highlight of our week long trip to the Amalfi coast and I would definitely recommend it!

Guide was excellent but I felt a bit rushed to see the highlights in 2 hours. Tried to wander on purpose own after to see more but just ended up in the some are a as with guide so gave up. Perhaps a map to follow along would have helped.

This was a great tour. We went to Herculaneum before going to Pompeii and that was the right decisions. At Herculaneum we didn’t have to battle the crowds and could really take in all the information. That helped us better navigate Pompeii. Our tour guide was great. She was very knowledgeable about the site.
