What's included

Skip-the-line admission to Herculaneum
Guided visit and assistance by an archaeologist
  • Get an incredible insight into a Roman town 2,000 years ago, right on the coast around the Bay of Naples
  • Join a trained archaeologist and see how lava and ash preserved everything when Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD
  • Learn about the 300 or so skeletons that were found by archaeologists at Herculaneum, all in great condition and offering details on the lives of Roman residents

Destroyed in 79 AD by volcanic lava, Herculaneum remains one of the most fascinating clues as to the lives of the rich in Roman times.

With more lavish marble and mosaics in its remains than Pompeii, it's clear that Herculaneum's homes were not completely destroyed by the eruption, just buried up to their top floors in ash.

Explore with a trained archaeologist and find out how the carbonization in the lava helped to preserve everything from mosaics to roofs, beds, wood, and even sewage!
