Naples: Herculaneum Skip-the-Line Tour with Archaeologist

1. Naples: Herculaneum Skip-the-Line Tour with Archaeologist

This tour will take you on a guided visit of the world’s best preserved Roman city, Herculaneum. This was a rich city of merchants and nobility, whose lives ended dramatically fast with the eruption of Mount Vesuvius nearly 2,000 years ago.  See the waterfront, where the remains of more than 300 people lie, who died trying to escape by sea. Explore the Samnite house, the thermal baths, the Temple of the Augustales, and the Forum. Discover the house of Neptune and Amphitrite, the Gymnasium, and much more. During this experience you can see not only stone, marble, and ceramics that survived the eruption, but also carbonized wood, and paintings and mosaics even more exquisite than those found in Pompeii. Learn about life in this city, and the blast that destroyed it, on this 2-hour guided tour.

What people are saying about Ercolano

We really enjoyed our experience with our guide Luciano Leone. He was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I recommend doing this trip with a guide, it makes the experience much more interesting and our guide pointed out a lot of things that we would have missed. The Herculanean is an amazing piece of history, really worth seeing I think.

Luciano Leone was a very special guide. He made sure everyone’s questions were answered and he made a point to keep the several young children on our tour interested. I’m so glad I paid for the tour rather than visiting the site on my own.

Michele Lamberti with Askos Tours was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable and great storyteller. We went on a Sunday and the other couple in our group didn’t show so Michele gave us a private tour which brought Herculaneum to life.

Diego was a fantastic guide. We visited on a rainy day, but he still really brought it to life. I would definitely recommend.

Meet with our guide Diego, who was really knowledgeable and showed us around the site with a lot of passion
