Full description
The tour departs from Naples every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The driver will pick you up from the main hotels of Naples city center. After the pick-up, meet the guide at the train station of Naples to take the train to Herculaneum. Reach Herculaneum in only 20 minutes. Skip the line with the assistance of the guide. Just as if you had a time machine, you will walk through the history of all the buildings of the ancient roman town that was buried by the ashes of the eruption of the Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Herculaneum is smaller than Pompeii and can be visited in 1.5 hours which makes it perfect as a visit for those who have little time. Visit also the Termopolium, the Sannite House, House of the Relief of Telephus, House of the Black Hall and the House of the Wooden Partition. After the tour, the guide will take you to the train station of Herculaneum to get the train back to Naples. Once in Naples, a driver will drive you back to the morning pick-up point.

My daughter and I went to Herculaneum. Our guide was called Salvatore and he was very knowledgeable, knowledgeable and friendly. Although we speak Italian we have decided to follow the guide in Spanish. This experience was very constructive and interesting, and we hope to return again to find out more about the subject. The visit lasted just over 2 hours, we entered the domus of ancient rich men and we had the opportunity to take photographs and walk on the mosaics (which in Pompeii it had not been possible to do). We learned a lot and enjoyed ourselves; we hope that you too can spend such a beautiful day in Herculaneum.

We where the only 2 persons booked this trip. So there was no guide .(we got a part refund for this so thank you Get your guide ) But our driver Tony was really friendly & provided us with some extra information about the Herculaneum & also about the city of Napels. We visited it alone and the beauty of the Herculaneum was stunning. this is a must see, I liked it more than Pompeii .
