Spectacular walking tour in the world's best preserved archaeological area - Skip-the-line included


**THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOMIZED**

The city provides a glimpse into the private lives of Ancient Romans. It is a small, italic town with an orthogonal grid pattern of streets. It is located on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius, just 4 miles South from Naples and 7 miles North from Pompeii. The town was quite small, as the total area was of 20 hectares, with a population of about 3, 000 inhabitants.
Herculaneum and Pompeii are also called the "sister cities"; the former is much smaller, but better preserved than the latter. While Pompeii had been covered in four to five meters of ashes, a 20-meter-thick avalanche of muds had buried Herculaneum.
Two-storey houses, carbonized wooden objects, intact paintings and mosaics are still preserved and observable.
With my anecdotes, you will observe the city come to life.

**AS YOU ARRIVE IN HERCULANEUM I CAN BUY THE TICKETS FOR YOU IF YOU WISH, SO TO SKIP THE LINE; EVERYTHING WILL BE DONE IN A FEW MINUTES**
