Discover the Herculaneum Ruins with a private guide
This is the tour for those who like to have a taste of ancient Roman life in
a quite and amazing archaeological site.
Herculaneum was destroyed by Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD and it's such a terrific place: less popular than Pompei but even better preserved than the other one.
Herculaneum tour preferably starts at 9 am in the morning to avoid crowds and summer heat.
It takes two hours and includes the visit to the main buildings, mostly wealthy villas from Roman time as Herculaneum used to be an exclusive resort for Roman patricians.
We will enjoy the amazing mosaics in the bathhouse and the greatly preserved frescoes in all the site recommended for customers who want to experience in a very deep way the greatness of this archaeological site. It's less popular than Pompeii but so rich and so well preserved.
