What to expect

Explore the ruins of Herculaneum, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the world's most preserved ancient cities. Herculaneum was buried under volcanic material after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD but, unlike the nearby site of Pompeii, a lot of the town was preserved: roofs, beds, doors, food and even skeletons.

Walk the cobbled streets of the archeological area with an archaeologist and get a glimpse of what life was like before the devastating eruption. Explore intact buildings at your own pace, see well-preserved frescoes, and imagine the daily rituals of those using shops, public gymnasium and thermal baths that can still be visited today.
