Explore the ruins of Herculaneum on a 2-hour private tour with an archeologist guide and skip the line tickets included.

Known as the sister to Pompeii, the town was buried following a volcanic eruption in 79 A.D. Get a glimpse into the private lives of Romans and see amazingly well-preserved wooden objects, paintings, and mosaics.

While Pompeii was covered in 4-5 meters of ash, an avalanche of mud about 20 meters deep buried Herculaneum, created a better-preserved site.

See many of the highlights, including the Forum, the House of the Black Saloon, the House of the Wooden Partition, the Bakery, the Terrace of Marcus Nonius Balbus, and the beach where hundreds of skeletons of the victims were discovered.
