Herculaneum Classics

The city of Herculaneum was buried by the same eruption of Mt. Vesuvius that covered Pompeii, but much more ash sealed this city under the ground for 17 centuries, giving us the opportunity today to uncover the original wood structures, the second floors, the perfectly preserved mosaics, a wooden ship used to fish… You can not find all of these things and more in Pompeii. Hercolaneum, awaits to be admired by you with our professional guides walking you through the mysteries dating back 2000 years.
Also, the smaller size of Hercolaneum and the relatively small number of visitors makes the visit very enjoyable. Notably, in full summer, Hercolaneum offers much more shade than Pompeii, as many more indoor places are open. The visit covers the Thermal Baths, the 300 skeletons of the victims awaiting a ship to rescue them, many private houses, the only wooden door preserved in the Roman World, the mosaic of Neptune and Anfitrite and the original wooden ship used to fish in the Thyrrenian Sea bordering the city.

Stefano was amazing! I was really worried because there were so many options for tours in Pompeii. I did as much research as I could and I picked this one. So glad I did. I was a few minutes late and he was standing there with my name on a sign, which was very helpful. Very knowledgeable. Super polite, it was a small group so we all got to ask questions and hear everything. I highly recommend.
