Ercolano: Herculaneum Skip-the-Line Ticket & Audio Guide

3. Ercolano: Herculaneum Skip-the-Line Ticket & Audio Guide

Visit the ruins of Herculaneum! The Roman city of Herculaneum, destroyed and buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D., was brought back to the chronicles of history in the 18th century thanks to Bourbon explorations. Over time, the memory of the location of the ancient Roman city was lost, and it was not until 1710 that a farmer, Ambrogio Nucerino, digging a well to irrigate his vegetable garden, recovered many valuable marble fragments, which only later were understood to belong to the theater of the ancient city. A day before the tour our team will contact you via whatsapp or via email: we will send you the tickets and all the informations you need. Be sure to download on your smartphone all the contents before the visit. The ruins and museums don't have free Wi-Fi and mobile network coverage is not always good.

Afterwards, take the Circumesuviana train leading to Ercolano (a 20 minute trip), where you will start your walk through the ruins.

I really enjoyed the tour, considering it allowed me to see all of this on the same day, it was an excellent experience with an overview of what I wanted to see. The help and attention of the guide Luigi was essential to complement the experience, he is extremely attentive and has vast knowledge about the history of the Naples region. In addition to the tour, there is a visit to a winery and a delicious lunch! It was really worth taking this excursion. Thanks!

Gennaro was an awesome driver and we enjoyed every site we went to. Even though there was cloudy weather on Vesuvius which impacted visibility, it was incredible to be climbing the volcano. The archeological sites were so interesting. Great way to fit in all 3 sites!

While the time is enough for Vesuvius and Erkalona excursions, time is limited for Pompeii. It is upsetting to have to return to Pompeii before the track is completed or even halfway through. The time here should be kept a little longer.

very good excursion, but impossible to access the audio guide for Vesuvius, for Herculaneum very difficult to find the right number on the audio guide for the right place, Pompei on the other hand nikel.

Perfect timing with the minibus! Very nice driver! Super and magnificent excursion that I recommend!
