Private tour: Herculaneum Rail Tour from Naples

Follow us on a tour designed to move around by public transport so as to get immersed in the local way of living!
We will step back in time on a half-day tour of the Ruins of Herculaneum — an incredible Roman Town and UNESCO-listed archaeological site. The victim of an ancient Mt Vesuvius eruption, Herculaneum was discovered back in the 18th century and the finds were impressive. Discover it for yourself on a tour with a private guide, and see the well-preserved baths, houses, and shops that give an incredible insight into Roman life. Marvel at ancient frescoes and mosaics. We will discover how advanced Romans were 2 two thousand years ago.
Please note this is a tour for people that are in good physical shape. The train ride is practical and short but there are no assigned seats. We can buy train tickets and admission fees quickly on the spot.
