What people are saying about Mount Vesuvius

An easy alternative to Pompeii. Get the picture without the crowds.

Chose Herculaneum on advise as my partner has mobility and breathing difficulties. Bought Fast track tickets to avoid queues at entrance.... but not required when we got there about noon. Easy to reach from Sorrento by public train €5.80 return followed by a short downhill walk to the site. Entrance through pleasant visitors centre with toilets. Gentle downhill path provides good views and photo opps. The actual excavations are fairly compact and hired audio guides seemed very popular (€8 each/€13 for 2). Clearly not an easy walk for anyone with more than very minor mobility issues but it's not a seafront promenade. Whilst not the scale or variety of its big brother, Pompeii, no crowds. Refreshments are available by auto vending machines along with more toilets close to excavations. Overall well worth the visit to get the experience... nice views across to Vesuvius... which makes you think... what if?? We got a taxi back up the hill to station €10, overpriced... yes, but essential...

Great 'must see' locations, more time would have been nice ...

Herculaneum is well worth a visit, the site is much smaller than Pompeii and although the allocated time is 2 hours, to do it justice 3 hours would be better. We didn't get 2 hours, because the bus was late and the skip the line queue was long! Suggest you hire an audio guide or buy a guidebook. There were no free 'English' leaflets on the day we visited which was a bit disappointing. Vesuvius is also well worth a visit, you need to be fit and able to walk uphill for about 30 minutes on loose volcanic stone, and you need good sturdy walking shoes. It provides for a good workout though, I certainly ached after the climb! Note this is not an organised tour. This tour uses the services of a local hop on bus service. The bus transfer from Herculaneum to Vesuvius was packed and people had to stand. The bus was changed enroute, at the wine tasting stop, this was supposed to have been a 30 minute stop, but they only stopped for 15 minutes. No time to buy lunch.

Informative & very interesting tour of Pompeii

My husband & I enjoyed seeing this amazing archeological site with our guide. She spoke English quite well & was very informative, unfortunately I don’t remember her name but I think it was Hillary. I can’t imagine seeing Pompeii for the first time without a tour guide. The site is huge & the guide told us details about each “building”. She gave us information about daily life in Pompeii, the eruption of Vesuvius and many more details about the bath houses, the “Red Light District”, the streets and so on. At the end of the tour we were allowed to stay at the site and see more things on our own. We took the local Circumvesuviana train from Sorrento to Pompeii & met our guide close to the train stop. The directions provided were helpful & easy to follow. The only reason I didn’t rate it 5 stars is because we felt that the guide was at times rushed and didn’t allow enough time to take pictures, we also had to walk fast to stay in the group.

Exchange the voucher at Herculaneum ticket office

The only challenge I had was that the email I received Had an address to exchange the ticket and referred to “the site”. I was not sure if it was the site of a tour agency or the historical site itself. Other than that the process to get the ticket and audio guide went very smoothly and quickly. There was only a little regular line but, as I was very tight for time every moment saved was worth the extra cost. I can imagine in high season it would be very advantageous. The site itself is very well preserved and much more manageable than Pompeii (which is also spectacular but really requires 2 days to see it all. Take a hat and water as it gets warm with little shade. The audio guide was great with descriptions of the buildings and a wealth of other historical info.

Interesting and fun dive in history. Just what I was looking for!

The whole experience was great for the presence of our Guide Nancy! Her energy and personality make this historical journey a fun adventure full of interesting facts about life and death of this petrified city. Don't be scared of crowds she knows her way in and out every part and "navigate" through the site like an expert captain. Enjoy her jokes and her Mythology tales while she takes care of you and make sure you have everything you need. Her fluent English and bubbly personality, together with a capturing narrative that really shows her passion for her job, told a story and created an experience that I will remember for sure! Thanks Nancy!
