The herculeum is fantastic and so worth a visit! We were there in July and it was a heatwave so personally didn't need to get any skip the line or in advance, we could have just walked in but I don't know what it's like rest of the year. Herculeum is so well preserved and there is a section of skeletons if that's something you are looking for particularly if comparing to Pompeii.

Difficulty getting the tickets and audioguide (not in the same place). I had to go back and forth several times in 40-degree heat, which wasn't very pleasant.

It was quick & easy to book & we loved the Herculaneum. Amazing walking around trying to imagine wearing a toga & living in this very old town. The detailed care the excavationists took to expose this village is amazing! Thank you Christine Macfadyen

There was no problem about getting our online tickets exchanged for entry to Herculaneum and pick up an audio tour as the staff were very efficient. Had a great day exploring the site. The only problem we had, and we were not the only ones, is that we missed the entry sign and entered the site back to front but that is the problem for Herculaneum not Headout who I booked with.

Herculaneum

Herculaneum, believed to have Greek origins due to its strongly Greek name, traces its history back to the 6th century BC. Unlike Pompeii, it's smaller, less crowded, and exceptionally well-preserved, offering a unique glimpse into life in the first century. Upon bypassing lengthy ticket lines with skip-the-line access, explore various well-preserved features of the ancient Greco-Roman town, including intact upper floors of houses, a majestic basilica, marble bathhouses, and a large spa complex. Additionally, the site boasts an array of frescoes, murals, paintings, woodwork, and metal artifacts.

Naples Archaeological Museum

For history enthusiasts or those captivated by the ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, a visit to the Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli is a must! Marvel at an exceptional mosaic depicting Alexander the Great's triumph over the Persians, immerse yourself in the beauty of Pompeian wall paintings, and admire classical sculptures such as the Farnese Bull and Atlas. Delve into the museum's most intriguing section, the Secret Cabinet, where a collection of erotic artifacts awaits, gathered from Pompeii's bars, brothels, and homes. From provocative frescoes to an intriguing assortment of phallic lucky charms, this exhibit offers a unique glimpse into ancient Roman sensuality and culture.
