What people are saying about Herculaneum

An easy alternative to Pompeii. Get the picture without the crowds.

Chose Herculaneum on advise as my partner has mobility and breathing difficulties. Bought Fast track tickets to avoid queues at entrance.... but not required when we got there about noon. Easy to reach from Sorrento by public train €5.80 return followed by a short downhill walk to the site. Entrance through pleasant visitors centre with toilets. Gentle downhill path provides good views and photo opps. The actual excavations are fairly compact and hired audio guides seemed very popular (€8 each/€13 for 2). Clearly not an easy walk for anyone with more than very minor mobility issues but it's not a seafront promenade. Whilst not the scale or variety of its big brother, Pompeii, no crowds. Refreshments are available by auto vending machines along with more toilets close to excavations. Overall well worth the visit to get the experience... nice views across to Vesuvius... which makes you think... what if?? We got a taxi back up the hill to station €10, overpriced... yes, but essential...

Exchange the voucher at Herculaneum ticket office

The only challenge I had was that the email I received Had an address to exchange the ticket and referred to “the site”. I was not sure if it was the site of a tour agency or the historical site itself. Other than that the process to get the ticket and audio guide went very smoothly and quickly. There was only a little regular line but, as I was very tight for time every moment saved was worth the extra cost. I can imagine in high season it would be very advantageous. The site itself is very well preserved and much more manageable than Pompeii (which is also spectacular but really requires 2 days to see it all. Take a hat and water as it gets warm with little shade. The audio guide was great with descriptions of the buildings and a wealth of other historical info.

Like walking back in time through history

Herculaneum is a must see for tourists in Naples. It was probably better than Pompeii (which I also visited) This ticket was good value and gave us peace of mind that we wouldn't have to queue however, there was hardly a queue at all when we got there and the tickets seemed a similar price if not cheaper on site. You do need to book an audio guide in advance though. We covered the ground of Herculaneum in about 2 hours but the audio guide was very drawn out, if I were to recommend an improvement it would be that the audio guide laid out the facts rather than telling long winded anecdotes. We stopped listening to the audio guide after all and felt we could have done with out it - as long as you have some info on the site/ a map of the grounds with you.

Great place but still had to join the ticket Q

Absolutely loved Herculaneum- a must do/see part of any trip to the area. Unfortunately we were told we still had to join the ticket Q to turn the mobile app ticket into a paper one! Luckily the Q was not too long- Go when it opens at 8.30 & it’s less hot & very few people about.

So glad I booked these to skip any queuing

Herculaneum is an incredibly moving place right from the start. Just thinking about digging the place out and it's enormity is mind boggling. Absolutely well worth the visit. Pity the Italians don't do any food on site but there is a good book shop and places to eat nearby.
