Full description
Depart from Sorrento you travel to Castellammare. Joining motorway at Castellammare, you arrive at Herculaneum after a journey of approximately 1 to 1.5 hours. Herculaneum was a residential coastal town which has been superbly preserved due to the fact that it was covered in volcanic mud during the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD.

Upon arrival at the entrance to the site customers can pay their entrance fees. The buildings have been so well preserved that you can walk down the streets pretty much exactly as the Romans would have done over 2,000 years ago. There are still original timbers in the buildings and clay pots stored as they would have been at the time of the eruption.

It is believed that many of the inhabitants of the town managed to successfully flee unlike those not so fortunate in Pompeii. The tour takes in many of the most important sites and public baths with their well-preserved frescoes and mosaics. Along with the shops and gymnasium it is a fascinating tour of possibly one of the best preserved examples of a Roman residential towns in the world, brought to life by the years of study and knowledge of the guides.

Following the visit, customers can enjoy free time to have a coffee before departing and arriving back at their resort in Sorrento by around 13:00.
