Full description
Wear your Augmented Reality smart glasses and enjoy a unique, innovative, and immersive walking tour at the archaeological site of Herculaneum. Travel back to 79 AC and see what Herculaneum's squares and houses looked like before being destroyed in a volcanic eruption. Meet your tour leader at Herculaneum main entrance and get kitted out with your glasses before listening to a quick introduction to how to use them. Then, begin your tour which has been designed by an archaeologist team to show you what life was like in Herculaneum before the eruption. The software of the glasses creates holograms that overlap the existing ruins, showing what the most significant temples, houses, and buildings originally looked like.

I felt the guide was critical to the enjoyment and that the AR Glasses portion added just 10% to the overall experience. Our Guide was knowledgeable and fun. The skip the line tickets worked fine. Herculaneum itself is AMAZING! I felt the overall price was expensive but it was worth it.

Wonderful tour! We were running late because of train cancellations at our previous location but our guide was so accommodating and helpful. Daniela F. was so sweet, kind, and funny. I’d highly recommend her and this tour. We enjoyed Ercolano more than Pompeii because of this tour.

Our guide Daniela was excellent very kind and knowledgeable. The AR experience was alright but needs improvement. They didn’t fit right and it was hard to see. They also didn’t work with glasses. She said that they are getting new glasses so they should be better.
