Less well known than Pompeii, Herculaneum is a smaller, very well preserved and truly magical archaeological site. The guide, Dr. Mimma, illustrated the site in an engaging way, also illustrating the main differences between these excavations and those of Pompeii. Great experience

Wonderful host - super knowledgable and experienced. In hindsight we would not have enjoyed the experience even a degree as much without the guidance! We felt so lucky to have had our tour with her. Highly recommend.

Herculaneum is manageable in around 3 hours at the most and, whilst you can wander around yourself, it pays to have a guide to really bring the scene to life. Definitely recommend this way of experiencing your visit (although a little pricey for 3 or more persons).
