Full description
Herculaneum was an ancient Roman town situated in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, submerged under a torrent of mud and lava after Mount Vesuvius' eruption in 79 AD. The buildings have been so well-kept that you can walk down the streets pretty much exactly as the Romans would have done over 2000 years ago! There are still original timbers in the buildings and clay pots stored as they would have been at the time of the eruption. Together with your guide, you’ll visit many of the most important sites such as the public baths with their well-preserved frescoes and mosaics, shops and the gymnasium. A tour of possibly one of the best preserved examples of a Roman residential town in the world, brought to life by the years of study and knowledge ofarchaeologists.

Excellent guide Nicoleta

Everything went according to plan. We were informed about the final meeting point, the bus was there on time. The guide we had was really very well informed and very gentle; she answered all our questions and shared very interesting information with all of us. We were more than happy to meet her and to have this journey. We absolutely loved it!
