Herculaneum: Private Walking Tour with Archeologist Guide
- Explore the ruins of Herculaneum with an archeologist guide
- Hear what happened to the town when Vesuvius erupted
- Learn how the city was so well preserved by volcanic ash and mud
While Pompeii was covered in 4-5 meters of ash, an avalanche of mud about 20 meters deep buried Herculaneum, created a better-preserved site.
See many of the highlights, including the Forum, the House of the Black Saloon, the House of the Wooden Partition, the Bakery, the Terrace of Marcus Nonius Balbus, and the beach where hundreds of skeletons of the victims were discovered.
