Meeting with the your guide by the ticket office of Herculaneum ruins for a private 2-hour guided tour of this ancient town destroyed, with Pompeii, during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius beginning on August 24th, 79AD.

The residents of Herculaneum were totally unprepared for what was about to happen. They did not understand that the significant rises and falls of the sea level on the city's shoreline over the years before the eruption were the result of magma building up deep beneath Vesuvius. During the first day of the eruption, only a few centimetres of ash fell on Herculaneum, and so many people were able to evacuate. But much worse was to come. Once the mud had settled, Herculaneum lay buried 25 metres underground. Like Pompeii, Herculaneum has yielded great treasures too. About a third of the town has been excavated, and as recently as the 1980s and 1990s, the skeletons of hundreds of bodies were discovered where they had sheltered on the ancient shoreline. Carbonised wooden furniture such as baby's cot has also been found.

With its demise, Herculaneum has left to the posterity the record of its life and habits two thousand years ago.

THIS IS A PRIVATE DAY TOUR WITH A PRICE NOT BASED ON THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE TRAVELLING IN YOUR PARTY!
