About
On our two hours guided tour of Herculaneum we will try to bring the entire city back to life, describing the culture of the time, the role of the family,the religious life with its various temples, cultures, beliefs and superstitions, funeral rites; the typology of the Roman houses. Dating back to the 4th century BC, the city was thought to have been founded by the legendary Hercules. This elite Roman resort was devastated by the same volcanic eruption that buried Pompeii in 79 AD. This is an excursion that cannot be missed, unlike the ash and lava that devastated Pompeii, Herculaneum was covered by a torrent of mud, which protected the ruins from atmospheric agents and illegal excavators. The guided walking tour of Herculaneum will take about two hours, The natural preservation of wooden elements, foodstuffs, fabrics, and architecture provides a fascinating and intimate look into the Roman's private life in ancient times.

Herculaneum Guided Tour
Sep 2019
Our guide Andrew and our driver Pasquale picked us up at the ship. During the drive to Herculaneum they were highlighting details of the area, answering any questions we had. Both were very knowledgeable. During our tour of Herculaneum Andrew was very informative and was clever in the order in which he guided us so that we (a group of 5) were not caught up or slowed down by larger groups, we were thankful for that. Prior to entering Herculaneum we toured the attached museum to see the jewelry and other artifacts recovered from the ruins. It gave us a better perspective/understanding of the opulence of Herculaneum. Andrew was an extremely knowledgeable guide and we would highly recommend Tour Guide Naples. Thank you Tour Guide Naples for making our day in Herculaneum memorable.
