Explore Herculaneum, one of the lesser-known cities buried by Mount Vesuvius in the same eruption that ruined Pompeii.
Arrive at Herculaneum, a richly preserved city from Roman antiquity, and meet your private guide to begin exploring the city. Herculaneum was closer to Vesuvius than Pompeii, and was buried much deeper in the lava – over 65 feet (20 m) versus Pompeii's 13 feet (4 m) – which better preserved the architecture through the millennia and stalled its excavation by several hundreds of years.
Herculaneum was also richer than Pompeii, and features the wealthier homes of nobility along with colorful murals and artwork. Learn about ancient Roman culture as your guide utilizes the rich physicality of the site to paint a vivid picture of ancient society.
