Full description
Start this tour with a pick-up from your hotel and transfer to the archaeological site of Herculaneum in the comfort of a large private vehicle. Meet your guide by the entrance of the site and visit what is today considered one of the most important archaeological sites of the Campania region.

Herculaneum is actually much better preserved than its counterpart in Pompeii. While Pompeii got covered under a layer of ash and lapilli, Herculaneum got covered under a layer of lava and mud that helped keep the site under better conditions. At the end of the tour, return back to your hotel in Sorrento.

We were collected from our hotel by Michele who was the perfect guide, he provided us with so much information about the area and his passion for the neopolitans was infectious. We arrived at Herculaneum and took a private tour which gave us enough time to return to Michel in 2 hours. A fabulous trip, thank you
