Full description
This tour will take you on a guided visit of the world’s best preserved Roman city, Herculaneum. This was a rich city of merchants and nobility, whose lives ended dramatically fast with the eruption of Mount Vesuvius nearly 2,000 years ago.  See the waterfront, where the remains of more than 300 people lie, who died trying to escape by sea. Explore the Samnite house, the thermal baths, the Temple of the Augustales, and the Forum. Discover the house of Neptune and Amphitrite, the Gymnasium, and much more. During this experience you can see not only stone, marble, and ceramics that survived the eruption, but also carbonized wood, and paintings and mosaics even more exquisite than those found in Pompeii. Learn about life in this city, and the blast that destroyed it, on this 2-hour guided tour.

We really enjoyed our experience with our guide Luciano Leone. He was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I recommend doing this trip with a guide, it makes the experience much more interesting and our guide pointed out a lot of things that we would have missed. The Herculanean is an amazing piece of history, really worth seeing I think.

The entire tour and support was great! Luciano Leone was our enthusiastic tour guide and this is well worth the time of any adventurer to the Campania Region. We were a little late arriving from our visit to Pompeii and ASKOS the tour operator helped us catch up with the group by sending us our tickets privately (thanks Paolo). 10/10!

Luciano was the perfect guide. He was very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. He made the tour enjoyable and I learned a lot about the history and what I was seeing. Luciano pointed out lots of extra little details I would have missed iI had did this tour on my own. I highly recommend this tour.
