Full description
Discover the ruins of Herculaneum, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the world's best-preserved ancient cities. Herculaneum was buried under volcanic material after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD but, unlike the nearby site of Pompeii, a lot of the town was preserved, such as roofs, beds, doors, food, and even skeletons.

Walk the cobbled streets of this UNESCO World Heritage Site with an expert archaeologist and get a glimpse of what life was like before the devastating eruption. Explore intact buildings at your own pace, see well-preserved frescoes, and imagine the daily rituals of those using the shops, public gymnasium and public thermal baths that can still be seen today.
