What to expect

Don't miss the opportunity to visit Herculaneum from Naples! This ancient seaside town was the favorite touristic destination of wealthy Romans and it was the first archeological site discovered in the Vesuvian area.

On the 24th of August 79 AD, Mount Vesuvius erupted destroying the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Herculaneum was discovered in the 18th century and became one of the most famous archeological sites in the world. Nowadays, the archaeological area boasts several landmarks such as the House of the Mosaic Atrium, the House of the Deer, the Thermal spas, and the House of the mosaic of Neptune and Amphitrite.

Wander through the streets of Herculaneum to get a unique glimpse into the private lives of the Romans and to experience the sense of panic that must have terrified the city's inhabitants when the volcano erupted. Just as if you had a time machine, you will walk amidst the historical buildings of the ancient Roman town and you will discover its history from your expert guide's explanations.
