Tour description

Herculaneum, situated a few kilometers away from Pompei and Vesuvius, was the ultimate holiday destination for the aristocracy of the Roman Empire. Perfectly preserved by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, the city is especially fascinating thanks to its incredible conservation of wood on the second floors of noble homes and in workshops. While strolling through the streets of the archaeological site, you will be able to admire mosaics, frescos and archaeological remains that reveal the opulence and luxury of one the richest Roman cities. Moreover, on the ancient beach, excavated only in the nineteen-eighties, you can still see the skeletons of the victims who sought in vain to escape the volcano’s fury.
