Overlooking the Gulf of Naples, Herculaneum became famous worldwide when the archaeological excavations brought the ancient splendor of this Roman city to the surface before the eruption of Vesuvius in 79AD buried everything with lava. Along with Pompeii, it was listed among the World Heritage Sites by UNESCO in 1997.
This 2-hour tour will allow you to explore the archaeological site in the company of an expert guide, who will show you the entire site and the beautiful mansions. The excavations of the city of Herculaneum have brought to light wonderful frescoes and wooden materials. Of particular interest are the Sacello degli Augustali, the baths and several shops.
If you wish you can also visit the Virtual Archaeological Museum (the Museum ticket can be purchased on-site), which tells the life of the Roman cities around Vesuvius before the tragic eruption. Here you will discover splendid 3D reproductions of the most famous Roman buildings and monuments in Campania.
