What people are saying about Ercolano

Abbino passato una splendida giornata con Benedetto, tra Pompei e Ercolano. Essendo una famiglia con 2 bambini, cercavamo una guida che potesse coinvolgere i nostri ragazzi: abbiamo ottenuto il risultato in pieno, con spiegazioni interessanti, approfondite e coinvolgenti. Tutto fatto con il giusto “ritmo”, con informazioni dettagliate che ci hanno accompagnato per una giornata intera. Davvero consigliatissimo!

very informative, personal, and added context where needed. he also compared and contrasted paestum to pompei and herculeum and other sites when it was warranted. well worth the time and effort to hire a trained expert to view the site.

Raffaele was a fantastic guide, sharing interesting history and facts about the town as well as showing us some of the best examples of the Herculaneum preservation. We had a great time - thanks!
