  • See preserved Roman architecture and art
  • Learn about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius
  • Travel by air-conditioned vehicle
  • Pickup and drop-off at central locations in Sorrento
Make your way to a centrally-located meeting point in Sorrento, where you’ll board an air-conditioned bus for the hour-long trip to Herculaneum, part of an intriguing UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Upon arrival at Herculaneum, join a guide at the entrance, where you can purchase tickets for the site (not included in tour price, €13 per person). You’ll have two hours for a guided walk around the street of ancient Herculaneum, which was frozen in time when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 A.D.
The guide will help bring the ancient world to life as you visit public baths with beautifully-preserved frescoes and mosaics, shops, and a gymnasium. Find out how lava and mud kept Herculaneum even better preserved than Pompeii, and learn the intriguing history of the Roman town.
