Experience history on this day tour from Pompeii to Herculaneum

Herculaneum was once a holiday resort in the Roman Empire, but was overwhelmed in 79 AD following the famous eruption of Mount Vesuvius, which flooded the city with mud and volcanic debris. The mud solidified and preserved the city in much the same way as Pompeii until researchers discovered it many years later.

At Herculaneum, you can see the tops of buildings and materials used by ancient town folk, such as wood, fabrics and even remnants of food. The site offers a unique insight into the private lives of the ancient Romans and is particularly enjoyable for those interested in history and archaeology.
