What people are saying about Ercolano
Excellent tour from an archaeologist who worked on the site, lots of information, facts on how the excavations were done and the content and background to what we were actually seeing. It's incredible that this place is so intact after over 2000 years. Guide had brilliant knowledge of the different sites that were along the coast. I must say she was very attentive to us as visitors during what was a very hot spell at 40 deg C making sure during the tour that we had lots of water and broke up the tour by getting us into the shade to cool of. Me and my daughter thought the tour was worth every penny and would do it again when we bring the rest of the family there.
Our guide Luciano Leone fulfilled our expectations completely. As empassionated archeologist working in Herculaneum he knew all about this site from his profession. Very polite to seniors, friendly to children and adults showing us additional illustrations and photographs! Luciano gave easy to understand explanations to all relevant topics like the eruption of the Vulkano Vesuv, the life of the ancient inhabitants of Herculaneum, former buiding architecture, paintings and many more. We were totally confinced having choosen the right provider and had a great day at Herculaneum.
Our tour was well organised and led by a highly knowledgeable and personable guide. Luciano brought the ancient city to life, so we could imagine being there and he added some humorous anecdotes along the way. He was passionate & enthusiastic about the archeological history of the site and described the various discoveries in a way we could all understand. The tour was well paced & comfortable, with plenty of stops in the shade and the 2 hours seemed to fly by.
We did the 2 hour herculaneum tour with lucenzio the archaeologist and it was absolutely amazing! He was passionate and captivating and made the whole experience so worthwhile. We learnt about the history and tragedy of this place, brought to life through his stories. I would recommend this tour to anyone wishing for an unforgettable experience.
Our guide Luciano Leone was so knowledgeable and full of enthusiasm. Michelle and I absolutely loved the tour and would fully recommend Luciano to all. Look out for him and book him. You will not regret it. The knowledge he has is incredible and very entertaining. A very big thank you.
