Full description
Meet your private guide at Herculaneum for a 2-hour guided tour of the archeological site. Herculaneum was located closer to Vesuvius than Pompeii, and was buried deeper by the lava, which better preserved the architecture. Admire the colorful murals and other artwork of the homes of wealthy nobles, which are reminders that Herculaneum was also richer than Pompeii. Learn about ancient Roman culture as your guide utilizes the ruins to paint a vivid picture of life during that time. Bring the whole family on this private tour, as its flexible structure makes it ideal for families with children.

Our guide, Danielle, was very knowledgable and happy to answer all our questions. We really enjoyed the time with her and learned so many things about the every day life of the ancient Roman settlements as well as the history of Herculaneum. Wonderful experience.

I had a private trip. Very interesting. Our well-documented guide caught our interest for 2 hours. He accompanied us to the most important points of the ruins and the small museum. Very well prepared guide. We recommend this trip. The name of guide is Daniela Mantice.

Our guide, Daniela, was helpful, charming and extremely informative. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the insights she offered into Herculaneum. The only problem was with the emailed meeting instructions sent with a map and a pin from GetYourGuide - the pin was several hundred metres away from the actual location. The conflict between the pin and the described location caused us to be late and a little irritated at the time. If you’re going to use a dropped pin on a map (which, in principle, is an excellent idea then you need to make sure it’s in the right place!
