The Roman summer retreat


Less famous than Pompeii, Herculaneum is the second most important Roma town destroyed during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A. D. 79. Even if is smaller is better preserved than Pompeii and it can be considered an Ancient site with the best example of Roman mosaics. Part of the town is still underground and day by day it's reveiling her tresures.

Itinerary

The tour starts with the visit of the Ancient shore of Herculaneum. This is the place where you'll see the skeletons of the victims of the eruption. The tour continues visiting the private houses, the Thermopolia (small fast food), the stores, and bakeries for discovering how people lived 2000 years ago. Telling you about its history and its evolution I will show you the traces of its opulence.

A Recent Review of this tour

Illaria was very pleasant and provided the type of tour we asked for, very personal and relaxed. Anthony the driver was outstanding. We enjoyed our day with them and would book them again. I have recommended them both to my colleagues.
