Description

Depart for an amzing day trip from your hotel/airport/port/railway station in Rome to the archeological UNESCO site of Herculaneum.

Located in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, Herculaneum (Italian: Ercolano) was an ancient Roman town destroyed by volcanic pyroclastic flows in 79 AD. Its ruins are located in the commune of Ercolano, Campania, Italy.


As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is famous as one of the few ancient cities that can now be seen in much of its original splendour, as well as for having been lost, along with Pompeii, Stabiae, Oplontis and Boscoreale, in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79 that buried it. Unlike Pompeii, the deep pyroclastic material which covered it preserved wooden and other organic-based objects such as roofs, beds, doors, food and even some 300 skeletons which were surprisingly discovered in recent years along the seashore as it was thought until then that the town had been evacuated by the inhabitants.


Herculaneum was a wealthier town than Pompeii, possessing an extraordinary density of fine houses with, for example, far more lavish use of coloured marble cladding.


The drive from Rome is going to be smooth and nice with your private driver on a small group tour. In a couple of hours you will reach your destination, close to Naples. At the entrance of the site the driver will introduce to you the licensed local guide (already holding your skipped line entrance tickets included) for a private tour inside the ruins. After the tour, you will be escorted for a nice pizza lunch (included with beverages & taxes) on Naples boardwalk. After lunch you will be taken back to Rome with your private driver.
