Description

Herculaneum was an holiday resort for rich Romans, smaller than Pompeii but better preserved.

Herculaneum together with Pompeii, were violently affected by the 79 AD eruption of Vesuvius. However, while Pompeii was buried under a layer of ash and lapilli, Herculaneum was covered under a huge mass of mud and volcanic debris. This huge solid mass allowed a better preservation of perishable materials like wood, remnants of food, fabrics, etc.

Our expert English speaking guide will make the city come to life, offering you the opportunity to imagine the private lives of Ancient Romans. On this tour you will visit the most interesting sites of this ancient city: the Basilica, the House of Neptune & Amphitrite, the Thermal Bath, the House of the Deer, the Gym, the Forum and much more.
