About
Choose to relive the history of the elegant city of Herculaneum with our expert guide! Here you will admire ancient artifacts from over 2000 years ago almost intact, which differentiate this site from Pompeii, making it a unique and unmissable experience! The tour begins with an overall panoramic view of the entire archaeological park. We will pass through a tunnel dug in about 20/25 meters of volcanic materials to reach the ancient beach of Herculaneum, where about 300 people on the run found death and whose skeletons we see today. Upon entering the city, everything will be a step back into the past, among refined details of Roman houses, shops and spas.

Fabulous Walking Tour, the only way to really see Herculaneum!
Mar 2020
Prior to the virus, we were staying in the Sorrento area with friends and decided to take a couple of tours. I have been to Pompeii several times so we chose Herculaneum. A hidden jewel, spectacular ruins! Smaller and more manageable with better conservation than Pompeii, you really feel like you are walking around a Roman town in the 1st century. I believe that if you have a guide you really get the full experience of what life was like. Our guide, Vanessa was extremely knowledgeable and her English was impeccable. More importantly, when you have a private tour with a smaller group, like ours, you get the opportunity to get all of your questions answered. It is more flexible and relaxed. When you are on vacation it’s important to spend your time wisely!
