What to Expect
On this tour, you will have the chance to visit the ruins of Herculaneum and the city of Naples by traveling in a comfortable luxury vehicle. This is a private tour organized exclusively for groups of friends or family. The tour allows you to choose your transportation vehicle depending on the size of your private group (a car for 3 persons, a minivan for 7, or a minibus for 15). You will be picked up from your accommodation and then driven by a professional English-speaking driver to the Herculaneum ruins and then Naples.
Once you arrive to Herculaneum, you will have approximately 2-hours of free time to spend in the old city. In 79 AD, Herculaneum was buried under a flood of mud during the Vesuvius eruption allowing the ruins to be better preserved and also the different typology of the town (residential). Herculaneum is today still partially buried under the modern town. At the end of the tour in the archaeological site, you will drive to Naples and then have a chance to visit the most interesting attractions there like the Royal Palace, San Carlo Theatre, Piazza Plebiscito (the main square of the city), the famous Duomo of San Gennaro, and the Archeological Museum. Your driver/ guide will be available to recommend a good restaurant where you can taste the original Neapolitan pizza and the sfogliatella, the most famous Neapolitan pastry. At the end of the day, you will be driven you back to your accommodation or to the starting point.
