Full description
Herculaneum, together with Pompeii, was violently affected by the 79 A.D. 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.

An expert 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. You will dive into a world apart and go into the Roman houses where you will be able to almost hear the voices of the  owners calling each other. See unique details such as the original doors and all the original furniture of the shops. You also won't miss the place they loved most - the thermal baths.

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 Mount Vesuvius in the background. This Herculaneum walking tour will be a fascinating glimpse into life during the Roman Empire.
