What to expect
  • Meet your guide at your selected time to begin your Herculaneum tour, which takes you through the ancient ruins in a child-centered way. An outdoor history museum, the World Heritage site offers insight into a world frozen in time by Mt. Vesuvius' eruption. After entering with your skip-the-line ticket, your guide leads you around the archaeological site, where structures are preserved by ash and lava. Marvel at the excavations of temples, homes, shops, and baths; see ancient art; and learn about what life was like here before 79 AD. As you go, enjoy interactive activities that match points of cultural and historical significance, allowing your family to be both educated and entertained at the same time. You'll go on a treasure hunt, hear stories of Hercules and sea monsters, and more, all of which encourage children to explore with purpose as they discover a foreign culture. When your tour ends, you may head to a nearby restaurant for a meal, if you wish (own expense). Please note: parents must accompany children at all times.

    Parco Acheologico di Ercolano
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    The ancient Roman site of Herculaneum gives goosebumps by all means! Roam around the Roman houses and picture the everyday life unwinding in those scenarios. Wander in awe before all the small yet unique details that build up the embroidery, at the doors, in the shops, around every corner! Finally, you will not miss the location they loved the most: their unique thermal baths.

Knowledgeable guide and a great experience
Oct 2017 • Friends
The tour was arranged by Francesca who even told us what train to catch from Naples and how to get to the ruins. Our guide Maria was an historian and extremely knowledgeable. She was able to answer all our questions and the two hour tour was a great experience for us. This is a must-see venue and a guide makes the ruins come to life. I have been to Herculaneum before and I much prefer these ruins to Pompeii as Herculaneum is more intimate and one can get the sense of what life was like when this was a bustling small town. Many thanks to Francesca and Maria.
