    Wonderful host - super knowledgable and experienced. In hindsight we would not have enjoyed the experience even a degree as much without the guidance! We felt so lucky to have had our tour with her. Highly recommend.

    Herculaneum is manageable in around 3 hours at the most and, whilst you can wander around yourself, it pays to have a guide to really bring the scene to life. Definitely recommend this way of experiencing your visit (although a little pricey for 3 or more persons).

    Meno noto di Pompei, Ercolano è un sito archeologico più piccolo, molto ben conservato e veramente magico. La guida, la dott.sa Mimma, ci ha illustrato in modo coinvolgente il sito, illustrandoci anche le principali differenze fra questi scavi e quelli di Pompei. Esperienza ottima
