Herculaneum: Wheelchair Friendly Tour

9. 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

The guide was waiting for us (there were 6 of us and no one joined our group) at the meeting point half an hour early. The guide, Mr. Luciano accompanied us with precise and passionate explanations. He also had with him a notebook where he had collected a lot of documentation that he showed us from time to time, also making comparisons with Pompeii. It was a very interesting two hours. Highly recommended.

The tour was great, Anna was so friendly and knowledgeable. I am so glad that we did the tour with her, she really put the whole Herculaneum way of life and it's inevitable demise into perspective in a pleasant and interesting manner. She was informative while keeping it interesting which can be difficult to do.

We had an excellent guided tour by Monica. As an archaeologist by training we learnt so much and the kids enjoyed themselves with the interactive activities. It helps to visualise what was once there. Thank you so much!

Antonio was a brilliant guide!

Antonio was a thoroughly engagig guide. We were four exhausted tourists and yet he informed and amused us as we meandered the highlights of the Herculaneum. The children thought he was very cool indeed!

Luciano was an amazing guide and we quickly became his little family! He brought the ancient city of Herculaneum to life for us today!
