Dive into the history of one of the most fascinating cities of the ancient Roman Empire on this excursion to the Herculaneum ruins.
Herculaneum Ruins Excursion
We'll pick you up at your hotel around 9 am and set off for the archaeological site of Herculaneum, one of the three Roman cities buried by the catastrophic eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. Ready for an ancient adventure?
We'll start by exploring the cobblestone streets of the site, lingering at the houses and thermal complexes that survived the terrible pyroclastic flow of the volcano. Did you know that the ancient Herculaneum even had a gymnasium?
During the visit, as you admire how incredibly well-preserved the materials and facades of the buildings are, we'll delve into the artistic styles and construction techniques in vogue at the time.
We'll also stop in front of some of the site's most emblematic monuments, including the Hall of the Augustals, the baths, the House of Aristides and Neptune, the Samnite House and the beach where more than 300 people died.
After two hours of exploring, we will conclude the activity by returning to Pompeii.
