  • Skip the line and explore two ancient Roman towns, both devastated and perfectly preserved by the cataclysmic eruption of Mount Vesuvius
  • See the original forums, aqueducts, bathhouses, city halls, private houses and more – you can even see the eerie plaster-cast remains of people caught in the blast
  • Learn all about life in the Roman Empire with informative exhibitions and optional audio guides to both locations

The eruption of Mount Vesuvius might have ended badly for the local residents, but it's been a blessing for history-lovers, perfectly preserving the ancient towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Now you can skip the line and get two-for-one access to these two preserved cities, traveling 2000 years back in time to the height of the Roman Empire. See relics, ruins, and the ash-frozen remains of those unfortunate enough to be caught in the blast.

One of the most catastrophic natural disasters in recorded history, the blast of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. left behind a lasting legacy, as clouds of superheated ash and magma effectively 'froze' everything they came into contact with.

Now you can fully explore this ancient world, and discover a snapshot of everyday Roman life in both Pompeii and the lesser-known Herculaneum. As you wander the ruined streets you'll get to explore the forums, amphitheaters, public baths, private houses and more. Check out the remains of Pompeii's aqueduct, then cast your eyes on the Herculaneum Arena, which is bigger than a city block.

With eye-opening exhibitions and optional audio guides, it's a fascinating window into the past.

Just keep an eye on that mountain in the distance.

Pompeii is such a great place and huge place to visit. In order for you to look around and see it got , you probably go there early. We enjoyed it but tiring. And must wear comfortable shoes and ofcoarse sunscreen during summer.

Convenient process that allows you to skip the long ticket lines. You just go to the ticket agent who serves groups and prepaid to the right of the long line

I would rate this excellent in terms of the roman ruins however there is so much to see we didn't make herculaneum which was a shame but what we saw was amazing I would suggest others going if you want to see it all then don't buy the joint ticket as you won't get it all done
