Full description
Gain instant access to the ancient Roman town of Herculaneum with your priority entrance ticket. Herculaneum was buried under ash after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD but, unlike the nearby site of Pompeii, a lot of the town was preserved: roofs, beds, doors, food and even 300 skeletons! Walk the cobbled streets of this UNESCO World Heritage Site and get a glimpse of what life was like before the devastating eruption. Marvel at artifacts that have kept their original form for almost 2000 years.  Explore intact buildings at your own pace, see well-preserved frescoes and imagine the daily rituals of those using the shops, public gymnasium and public swimming baths that can still be seen today.

    I couldnt go to Pompeii as it is currently shut on Mondays so I bought a ticket to Herculaneum thinking that it would be something at least. Im glad Pompeii was shut as although Herculaneum is smaller, it is enough so you dont get ruined out and has some absolutely stunning houses in a fantastic state of preservation. The colours on the walls and in particular the floor of the female bath hojse are so well preserved it takes you back to the time and lets your imagination run riot

    The priority entrance tickets worked great. When we arrived there was a long line to get in. We were able to just walk through and enter the site immediately. One word of caution - you cannot bring any large bags like a large backpack into the ruins and will need to leave with security - that was free which was a pleasant surprise. You should park in the underground lot to the right before the entrance. You have to pay for that and bring your parking ticket with you and pay upstairs so that the ticket can open the gate on the way out.

    The audio guides included in this is the biggest pro we found when buying this. We loved it! We did skip the line which was ideal but it wasn’t too long to begin with so it wouldn’t have been the worst thing to wait. We visited on a Tuesday morning however so that may be something to do with it. The entrance to Herculaneum seemed to start at the last number on the audio tour so we had to wander to find the first number. However it was also helpful as it meant we didn’t miss any stops around the site as the audio guide indicated if we’d missed a number.
