What people are saying about Archaeological Site of Herculaneum

I liked everything very much. An unforgettable experience. An excellent audio guide. Convenient to get there by bus and train. In the beginning, the construction crane, which hangs over Pompeii, interfered with the atmosphere, but at the end of the excursion, it was he who suggested that even after 2000 years , life on the slopes of Vesuvius continues.

It is a very good saving option and it makes it easier for you not to have to buy tickets or tickets, POMPEII and HERCULANO for free and all the transport of metro, bus, discount in museums etc ...

Pompei was very interesting, the catacombs of San Gennaro were also impressive! With the ARTEcard we could use the metro and all trains, that was very practical!

Riccardi was a wonderful tour guide. He gave us so much information about the ruins that we never knew before. He was a pleasure. Very personable.

Pass very suitable for means of transport (train, bus, metro) plus entry to museums or sites. economical and practical
