After a long sleep, Vesuvius woke up on the 24th of August of 79 AD. This eruption was apocalyptic, since it destroyed the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum.
Herculaneum was discovered in XVIII century and became one of the most famous archeological sites in the world. Therefore, this tour of Herculaneum from Naples will offer you an unforgettable experience.
Nowadays, Herculaneum boasts several landmarks such as the house with the mosaic Atrium, the house of the Deer, the Thermal spas of the Forum, the house of the mosaic of Neptune and Amphitrite and so forth, which definetely deserve to be visited.
Herculaneum is smaller than Pompeii and IT can be visited in a hour and half. This tour will last 3 hours and will include round-trip transfer from Naples and english commentary.
As you wander through the streets of Herculaneum, you are not only offered a unique glimpse into the private lines of the Romans, but you can also sense the panic that must have terrified its inhabitants when the volcano erupted. Just as if you had a time machine you will walk amiidst the historical buildings of the ancient roman town that was buried by the ashes of the apocalyptic eruption of the Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.
Do not miss the opportunity to visit Herculaneum from Naples, which was the favourite touristic destination of wealthy Romans and then the first archeological site discovered in the Vesuvian area.
