Herculaneum – Private walking tour with an expert guide

From: 150

Special – Unique – Different

The sister city of Pompei!!!!  Come and enjoy Herculaneum, less known than Pompei but possibly better preserved and restored, as it was buried in a different way compared to the other one. The entirety of the city can be viewed at a glance and that incorporates the modern city of Ercolano built directly above the ancient ruins.You can clearly see the beach area, where people tried to make a narrow escape, but were blocked by the raging and unforgiving sea conditions….
