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**
A wonderful walk through the city of Herculaneum, including stops at the Temple of the Augustales, the beach where more than 300 skeletons were found, the thermal baths, the forum, the House of Neptune and Amphitrite, the Samnite House, the gymnasium, the House of the Dears and much more.
