What to Expect
On this tour, you will have the chance to visit the ruins of Herculaneum and Mount Vesuvius 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 Mount Vesuvius.
Once there, you will have approximately 3-hours of free time to spend in the old city of Herculaneum. 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. After visiting the ruins, you will be driven to the entrance of Veuvius National Park, where you will have free time to visit the crater, one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world. At the end of the excursion, you will be transferred back to your accommodation or to the starting point.
