Full description
Enjoy the added perk of skip-the-line entry at the Archaeological Site of Herculaneum on this guided half-day trip from Naples. Follow your guide on a walking tour of Herculaneum and learn about the apocalyptic volcano eruption that turned the town into ruins. After a long sleep, Mount Vesuvius woke on October 24, 79 AD. This eruption destroyed the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Herculaneum was discovered in the 18th century and became one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. Nowadays, Herculaneum boasts several landmarks such as the House of the Mosaic Atrium, House of the Deer, thermal spas of the Forum, and House of the Mosaic of Neptune and Amphitrite. As you wander through the streets of Herculaneum and see the site’s landmarks, get a unique glimpse into the private lives of the Romans, and sense the panic that surprised its inhabitants when the volcano erupted.
