The tour will start every day at 3:00 pm from the ticket office of Herculaneum ruins. The tour is for a small group of maximum 20 people
This tour will take you to the world’s best preserved roman city.
It is Herculaneum, a rich city of merchants and nobility, whose life ended dramatically fast. Here you’ll see the waterfront where more than 300 remains of people trying to escape by sea were found, the Samnite house, the thermal baths, the Temple of the Augustales, the forum, the house of Neptune and Amphitrite, the Gymnasium, the house of the wooden partition and much more.
You will get an intense experience: you can see not only stone, marble and ceramics left, but also carbonized wood and even more exquisite paintings and mosaics than in Pompei.
Herculaneum was destroyed by a much more powerful force which instantly burnt all wood and buried the city under a thick layer which didn’t let the air go through and cause decay.
