THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR NEEDS AND REQUESTS.

The city provides a glimpse into the private lives of the romans. It is a small italic town with an orthogonal grid patter of streets. It is located at the foot of Mt Vesuvius, just 4 miles south from Naples and 7 miles north from Pompeii. The town was quite small as the total area within the enclosure was of 20 hectares, with a population of about 3000 inhabitants.
Herculaneum and Pompeii are also called the "sisters cities"; the first is much smaller but better preserved. While Pompeii had been covered in four to five meters of ashes, an avalanche of muds about 20 meters thick had buried Herculaneum.
Second stories, carbonized wooden objects, intact paintings and mosaics are still preserved. My explanation will make the city come to life.

Itinerary

A wonderful walk through the city of Herculaneum including stops at Temple of the Augustales, 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. . .
