Full description
Depart from multiple locations on the Amalfi Coast and travel by bus to Herculaneum, an ancient Roman town situated in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius. With an expert local guide, learn how the town became submerged under a torrent of mud and lava after the eruption of 79 AD. Discover buildings that have been so well preserved that you can walk down the streets, almost exactly as the Romans would have done over 2000 years ago. See the original timbers in the buildings and clay pots stored as they would have been at the time of the eruption. It was believed that many of the inhabitants of the town managed to successfully flee unlike those not so fortunate in nearby Pompeii. Together with your guide, visit many of the most important sites across a 2-hour tour. See the public baths with their well-preserved frescoes and mosaics, and the gymnasium. See the preserved skeletons of ancient Romans who were unfortunate enough to have been caught in the eruption.
