The Beauty & the Beast- Tour by train
We can meet at the Herculaneum circumvesuviana station and we'll catch a bus to Vesuvius, which drives to the height of 1000 meters and than you have to hike the last part of the peak to reach and walk along the edge of the crater. Than we can go to Herculaneum, an other important archeological site, World Heritage, which was a luxus tourist resort of Ancient Times, better preserved than Pompei and where you can breath the atmosphere of the Roman city. Amazing experience!

Valentina was great! She picked us up promptly, and narrated everything along the drive to Herculaneum - very knowledgeable and likable! Valentina knew everything about Herculaneum and was able to answer every one of the many questions we had as we walked through antiquity with her. She was always looking for ways to add value, probing as to where we might like to eat, visit and walk - in addition to the simple tour that we'd booked with her. What a treasure!
