This 4-hour tour of the wonders of Herculaneum begins with pickup at your area accommodation. Groups staying in Maiori, Amalfi, or Ravello will travel by private car or minivan. You have the flexibility to book for morning or afternoon departure, and groups ranging from 1-15 people are catered for.
In the shadow of Mt. Vesuvius, Herculaneum was one of several towns catastrophically impacted by the volcanos eruption in 79 AD. Given Herculaneum's close proximity to Vesuvius, it was deluged by pyroclastic flows, which quickly buried the town. The result is that todays excavated ruins are strikingly well preserved, and provide visitors a glimpse into ancient Roman life.
Upon your arrival, enjoy an optional shared, guided tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site with an English-speaking guide. After two hours spent discovering the landmark, return to your vehicle. The tour ends when you are dropped offdirectly at your accommodation.
