What to Expect
Herculaneum was a residential coastal town, superbly preserved by volcanic mud during the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. Join this tour to see it up close! This private, half-day tour presents the highlights of this historical gem.

On arrival at site's entrance, the guide waits for guests to pay their entrance fees. Guests then view the town from above, before heading down and beginning the guided tour. Lasting about an hour, the tour features buildings so well-preserved that you can walk down the streets nearly exactly as Romans did over 2,000 years ago! Original timbers still bolster the buildings, and clay pots stored as they were at the time of the eruption offer clues about life so many years ago.

The tour also features the House of the Argus and public baths with well-preserved frescoes and mosaics. A house with carbonized furniture has a room with a marital bed still intact. The frescoed floor of "the house of the Neptune mosaic" features a sparkling mosaic floor as well as a portrait of the owners of the household, along with flower and vegetable mosaics. Along with the shops and a gymnasium, Herculaneum is one of the best preserved examples of a Roman residential town in the world.
