Herculaneum: Wheelchair Friendly Tour

10. Herculaneum: Wheelchair Friendly Tour

Explore Herculaneum, Pompeii's sister city which was destroyed in the same devastating eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Located even closer to the treacherous volcano, Herculaneum was actually better preserved due to the different quality of the ash which buried it. Besides this, Herculaneum was a wealthier town, meaning the remaining architecture and decorative elements are more lavish and impressive.  Take advantage of a site that is easier to explore due to its smaller size and greater accessibility. Two wheelchair ramps lead to an accessible bridge that allows you to cross over the ancient Herculaneum shoreline and into the city. Herculaneum provides step-free access to many of the ancient streets, sidewalks, and buildings so those with restricted mobility will be able to explore the highlights of ancient Roman fishing town.  Individual pickup/drop off and private round trip transfer with wheelchair accessible vehicle and professional driver will be provided.

What people are saying about Ercolano

Exciting experience

The tourist company welcomed us in the office, clarified the program, and gave us the vouchers. We travelled by shuttle buses of another local company. There is no guide during the day. Vouchers must be substituted for tickets at entrances. In the case of Vesuvius, this was uncomfortable. The bus stopped near the starting point of Vesuvius's pedestrian ascent, and the ticket office was 200 meters down the road.The parking for buses and taxis is crowded and dangerous for pedestrians. It takes at least an hour and a half to climb to the volcano crater and return. It is possible to return to Naples on a later bus.

Basically a shuttle bus

Could have done with less time at mount vesuvius and more time at herculaneum. There was no wine tasting stop as advertised either. Mister White, who is the actual tour company, asked get your guide to remove that part of the tour from their adverts a couple of months ago.

Nice view over Naples, there is not much to see at Vesuvius. Put on sturdy shoes. The ascent is a bit steep and already exhausting for older people. In between there are small kiosks where you can catch your breath. Toilets are only at the entrance and are very dirty.

Splendid site with the possibility of visiting it at your own pace

The site is magnificent, the information given by the audio guide is complete and very well documented. No complaints. The skip-the-line ticket allowed me to avoid the long waiting line and fully enjoy my day on the site. Bravo.

Great trip well organised with a well spoken bus driver

Although u never got a guide on the trip to take you on the bus it was well worth doing. The bus had a guided talk as u went along and the driver always helped with meeting times and information needed. Both places were great.
