The entire trip will last roughly 8/9 hours. You are picked up near Your cruise/hotel by an English-speaking driver with his car (or Minivan) for the transfer to the ruins of Herculaneum. Once there, You'll meet Your private English-speaking guide for an interesting visit of the ruins (duration 2 hours).
Buried in 79 AD by Mt Vesuvius, the town of Herculaneum, with all its big and small treasures, was submerged by the materials emitted by the volcano during the dreadful eruption. And so, today Herculaneum is a time capsule for the posterity, rich in treasures and news about the life at the time of the Roman Empire. At the end of the Herculaneum visit, You'll reach Naples by car (or van) with Your English-speaking guide for a sightseeing of the city. There, You'll have also free time (1 hour) to walk around and for lunch: a great idea would be to taste the Neapolitan pizza, symbol of the city.
After that, Your guide will show You the Archaeological Museum of Naples. The Archaeological Museum of Naples, one of the earliest established in Europe in a monumental building in the late eighteenth century and early nineteenth century, displays a wealth of works of art and archaeological artifacts that has no equal in Italy: over 3000 objects of great value are kept and there are hundreds of thousands of artefacts of all ages.
With the transfer to Your cruise/hotel, this great guided tour ends.
