A complete and fascinating tour: our guide will accompany you through the discovery of Herculaneum and its history.

Herculaneum was covered from the eruption of the Vesuvius in 79 d.C and accidentally brought to life from the excavation ordered from the Bourbon family.
Unlike Pompei, Herculaneum was covered from a lay of lava and mud that caused a better conservation of the city.
This allows, through the guide’s explanation, a better understanding and comprehension of the tradition and custom of that times, admiring organic finds such as clothes, but also furniture, wooden parts of buildings and others buildings as the Thermae and the monumental Basilica.
