Tickets for Herculaneum

Step into life before the Vesuvius eruption with a visit to Herculaneum (Ercolano in Italian). This ancient Roman town lies in the shadows of Mount Vesuvius, and was once wealthier than Pompeii. Both towns were destroyed by volcanic flows in 79 AD. Pompeii is well-preserved but Herculaneum is even more so - the eruption preserved doors, bedding and even food here. This UNESCO World Heritage site allows you to explore several villas and taverns and examine the mosaics and frescoes preserved for centuries by the volcanic water, ash and debris.

Herculaneum: Priority Entrance
Amazing place. Well worth the visit. With the self guided tour we managed to spend several hours here. Although a very hot day there was plenty of shade from the buildings.

Herculaneum: Skip The Line + English Guided Tour
Our guide was absolutely amazing - he was super informative, had answers to all our questions, took us round the whole town and had some properly interesting facts about the city that used to be!
There’s not much you can glean from the place itself (it’s fairly difficult to tell what’s happened with certain houses etc) so having a guide take us around was perfect.
10/10 definitely recommend!

Smaller and more intimate than Pompeii. Well worth it.

I preferred Herculaneum to Pompeii (although both are excellent). It’s smaller, more complete and you get the sense of being in a real village. They’re also very generous about letting you walk inside all the buildings. Well worth a 2-hour visit.

Wonderful visit. Highly recommended especially in the morning if you want to avoid the tourist-concentrated- Pompéi.
