As an archaeologist I consider the excavations of Herculaneum a unique, exceptional site. They are the most preserved Roman remains ever. You will visit a Roman city crystallized by a violent eruption of Vesuvius that occurred in the year AD. An exciting experience that will indelibly enrich your travel experience.

Herculaneum was an ancient Roman town located in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, near present-day Naples in Italy.

Pompeii Walking Tour with an Archaeologist

Pompeii
3 hours

The ancient city of Pompeii is probably the most important archaeological site in the world. A tour here led by an archeologist, even better! In the past, it was an agricultural and commercial center where about 20000 people lived. The eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD covered it under about 8 meters of pumice, lapilli and ash. The tour lasts about 3 hours and will be a journey through history where you will see houses, theaters, baths, shops, brothels, casts of the victims.

Visiting ancient Herculaneum, in the bay of Naples, is an experience that will last for a long time. There are no other ancient cities which can compare to Herculaneum for its amazing state of preservation after the city was covered under a pyroclastic flow during the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in AD79. Herculaneum is famous for the well preserved frescoes, mosaics, wooden partitions, furniture and many other petrified organic materials which are so important to understand its life.

Two thousand years ago, Herculaneum was the best choice for a nobleman looking for a peaceful and enchanting place to enjoy a holiday at the foot of Mount Vesuvius. With its sumptuous villas that overlooked the sea, terraces and gardens with colorful flowers where one could read a book and seek solace from the busy winter, it boasted an elegant theatre for live performance, a big gymnasium surrounded by marble columns, magnificent bath houses and bronze statues. Herculaneum was a delight.
