A visit to the smaller Herculaneum and the Volcano that caused its burial - skip the line included
THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR NEEDS AND REQUESTS.
PLEASE ENQUIRE FOR GROUPS SMALLER THAN 5 OR BIGGER THAN 8
Herculaneum is much smaller but better preserved than Pompeii. An avalanche of muds 20 meters thick buried Herculaneum.
Second stories, carbonized wooden objects, intact paintings and mosaics are still preserved.
With a two hour guided tour at Herculaneum I will make the old city come to life again.
You can stop for lunch in a typical Italian restaurant.
After lunch the driver will take you to Mt. Vesuvius.
A 20 minutes walk is needed to reach the highest part of the crater, where local volcanological guides are waiting (included in the cost of the ticket).
Don't miss the view from the Crater of Mt. Vesuvius!
A 2 hours guided tour through the city of Herculaneum with Temple of the Augustali, the beach where more then 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.
. Quick lunch break if you wish
. At the top of the volcano is a crater rim that affords a view into the crater that still fumes slightly. Besides that you will have a stunning panorama overseeing the Bay of Naples, Capri, Ischia, the edge of the Sorrento coast and more. Everyone has to walk on his own the last 750 metres steeply uphill. Closed-in shoes are essential. Half hour guidance with the volcanological guide you will meet on the top of the crater.
After you will walk back down to meet your driver.
