your experience

Visit the ancient town of Herculaneum that overlooks the Gulf of Naples on this guided venture alongside an expert archeologist. Renowned for its splendid archeological Roman excavations, you're in for a real treat. Legend has it that Herculaneum was founded by the mythological hero, Hercules! Born of the archaic age, this city has evident Samnite, Greek, Etruscan influences, with an overriding Roman presence. Alas, this city (along with Pompeii) was destroyed by the same eruption of Vesuvius in 79AD.

These excavations were included in the UNESCO World Heritage site list in 1997. Your tour lets you explore this unique site, the unique distribution of houses, the monumental basilica, the grand spa complex, the gymnasium, and more. A walk through the ancient city lets you see bronze parts and the elevations of the houses, conservation of woods, and the various styles of Vesuvian paintings. All the while, your expert archeologist will engage you with captivating anecdotes, secrets, and stories about this world-famous attraction.
