This tour will take you to Herculaneum, the world’s best-preserved Roman city, once 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, 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 won't only see the stone, marble and ceramics left, but also carbonized wood and even more exquisite paintings and mosaics than in Pompeii.
