Explore the fascinating ruins of Herculaneum, the less famous but arguably better-preserved little sibling to Pompeii.

Soak up the stunning views over the Bay of Naples as you enter the town which was founded around the 5th century BC and became a popular summer resort for the Romans. Find out how Herculaneum was frozen in time by rivers of hot mud that flowed down the streets during the devastating eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD.

Hear the secrets of the painstakingly excavated town as your guide leads you into the houses, shops and baths. Look closely at intricate mosaics, vibrant frescoes and artefacts from ancient daily life such as foodstuffs and fabrics.
