Skip-the-line Ancient Herculaneum Highlights Exclusive Tour with Private Guide

Pretty famous at the time, as historians have preserved into their reports, the small city of Herculaneum, settled at the Volcano Vesuvius slopes, had been buried during the Vulcanic burst dated 79 A.C.

Despite the centuries and the new urban settlements, 2000 years after that awful disaster you have the chance to move around the city and walk on the original stoned pavements.

The  private guide will show you the highlights of the Roman city while listening in details to our ancestors’ customs and traditions. Among the must see of the site, your will visit the "Palestra" (gym) and the houses whose walls are decorated with spectacular frescoes such as Casa di Nettuno e Anfritrite, Casa dello Scheletro, Casa dell'Alcova e Casa del salone nero.
