Private guided walking tour in the excavation of Herculaneum
Step back 2000 years with your private guide and get immerged in a real roman town buried under 75 feet of hot mud during the roman empire. Visit ancient houses, stores, taverns, mosaics, frescoes and…skeletons! A two hours private tour to discover the site and its hidden treasures. Herculaneum is smaller than Pompeii but better preserved and easier to visit. An enjoyable walk away from the crowds of Pompeii.
If you're a cruise passenger or hosted in Naples or sourroundings - and you prefer a roundtrip from-to your place,
please inquire for a customized tour!
The Archeological Park is spread on an area you can dominate from the top at a glance: lovely for pictures with the Mt vesuvius on the back!
At the bottom you can see the area of the marina, where a 300 human skeletons were found together with a boat (on week-ends the boat is on display).
Crossing a modern bridge we will enter the site. The walking tour will be tuned onto people attitude and desire, however most af the followings will be visited: Suburban Thermal Bath, Council Hall of the Augustali, Big Palestra, House of the Stags, shop with remains of original wooden shelves. And much more. .

Fabrizio was articulate, knowledgeable and managed to bring Hercolaneum to life for us! We loved his tour and would always chose Fabrizio as a guide for any return visits.
