Nestled in the shadows of Mount Vesuvius, the ancient Roman town of Herculaneum was buried along with Pompeii by a volcanic eruption in 79 AD. The Vesuvius & Herculaneum Card is the easiest way to explore this historic site, providing free admission and discounts on transport to the area's biggest attractions.

Your handy card will last for 3 days, which is plenty of time to see all of Naples' best sites, and learn the history of fated Herculaneum. Witness the ruins of this ancient site at Ercolano Archaeological Park, get a feel for volcanic power at the Ercolano Virtual Archaeological Museum, see how the nobles lived at Villa Campolieto, and walk to the cone of Vesuvius with a local guide.

Discover the ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum and feel like you're really there at the Virtual Archaeological Museum.

Soak up the atmosphere of the Vesuvian villas, built in the 1700s by Neapolitan nobles, and join a guide to walk the narrow path around the edge of the crater. It's an up-close look at a natural wonder that shaped Italy's history!

Getting around Naples is also easy with the Vesuvius & Herculaneum Card. You'll get discounts on transport including the Vesuvio Express, which connects Ercolano station to each of the sites included in the card.

Overall great experience, slight problem is walking to the ticket office once you’re off the bus but it’s very quick. The 4D/5D museum experience is great and gives you a great insight to the history of the area
