Full description
The city of Herculaneum was partly destroyed by the Vesuvius eruption of 79 A.D. Centuries of excavations later, thanks to a great archaeological work on the area, you will now have the chance to walk into the ancient streets and alleys on the original pavement, enter the shops and the houses, challenge the acoustics of the theatres, visit the baths following your path up till the forum, where all the political, social, artistic and religious aspects of the ancient Herculaneum life used to melt. Famous for the magnificence of the frescoes, mosaics and the original wooden structure of the houses still standing, you will literally jump 2000 years back in time. After this incredible 2.5-hour tour, you will be driven to Vesuvius National Park, where you will join a group tour and an expert guide in geology will walk you till the top of the crater, while explaining to you all the complex phenomena happening right under your feet. From the crater, you will enjoy one of the most suggestive and astonishing views of the Gulf of Naples and landscape. This walk will take you more or less 1.5-hours. Moreover, you will not be asked to wait in queue but your guides will allow you to skip-the-line and have immediate access to the sites. Get ready for this amazing and unbeatable experience.
