What to expect

The city, also known as 'the sister of Pompeii' was buried by a Vesuvius eruption in 79 AD. This private walking tour provides a glimpse into the private lives of Romans. See second story houses, carbonized wooden objects, intact paintings and mosaics that are still preserved today.

Your 2-hour tour starts from the ticket office of Herculaneum where you will be met by your guide. Discover the small town of Herculaneum, located at the foot of Mt Vesuvius on your walking tour. Learn why Herculaneum is considered to be the better preserved city compared to Pompeii and how the population of just 3000 inhabitants were frozen in time by an avalanche of 20 meters of earth.

With your guide, you will visit the amazing sites of the Temple of the Augustale, the beach where more than 300 skeletons were found, the Thermal Baths, the Forum, the House of Neptune and Amphitheater, the Samnite house, the Gymnasium, the House of the Dears and much more.
