Pickup from the main hotels of Naples City Center – Skip the line in Herculaneum

After a long sleep, Vesuvius woke up on October 24, 79 AD. This eruption was apocalyptic, since it destroyed the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Herculaneum was discovered in the 18th century and became one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. Nowadays, Herculaneum boasts several landmarks such as the house with the mosaic Atrium, the house of the Deer, the Thermal spas of the Forum, the house of the mosaic of Neptune and Amphitrite, which definitely deserve to be visited. Herculaneum is smaller than Pompeii and can be visited in an hour and half. This tour includes transfer from Naples and English commentary. As you wander through the streets of Herculaneum, you are not only offered a unique glimpse into the private lives of the Romans, but you can also sense the panic that surprised its inhabitants when the volcano erupted.
