Enjoy a 2.5-hour walking tour of Herculaneum led by a top-rated local guide. This ancient town is the site of excavated ruins that provides a rare glimpse into the daily life of the ancient Roman Empire.

Like Pompeii, Herculaneum was buried beneath 60 feet of ash when Mt. Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD. A bit wealthier and smaller than Pompeii, Herculaneum was a hub of activity in ancient times. From the baths to the amphitheater, life was luxurious by the Bay of Naples. Adorned with colorful frescoes and mosaics, the villas of Herculaneum boast opulence and style.

Sights of interest include the House of the Mosaic Atrium, the House of Neptune and Amphitrite, and the House of the Deer. Continuing on with the itinerary, you will visit the Decumanus, the Palestra, the Basilica, and the Thermal Baths of the Forum.

When the town of Herculaneum was overwhelmed by volcanic debris, an airtight seal formed around the town that carbonized wood items and preserved them intact. You’ll be amazed when you see chairs and ceiling beams of original wood, as they looked that fateful day.

An expert local guide will conduct your tour in English. You’ll learn and have fun with your group as you take in the sights of ancient Herculaneum and modern Ercolano. Admire the ever-changing light as it plays off Mt. Vesuvius in the background.

Plan on wearing comfortable shoes to walk over original cobblestone streets. Pack a sun hat or umbrella for summer afternoons, when the temperature can reach 100º f.
