Overview

The ancient Roman city of Herculaneum is a UNESCO World Heritage site, but most tours only make a brief stop en-route to neighboring Pompeii. This private 2.5-hour walking tour of Herculaneum takes in all the highlights, including the Forum, the Thermal Baths, the House of the Mosaic Atrium and the Decumanus.
  • 2.5-hour private walking tour of Herculaneum
  • Explore the fascinating ruins of ancient Herculaneum, a UNESCO World Heritage site
  • Admire beautifully preserved mosaics at the House of the Mosaic Atrium and the House of Neptune and Amphitrite
  • See the Thermal Baths, the Forum, and the Basilica
  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
  • This private tour ensures you’ll receive personalized attention from your guide
Make your own way to the Herculaneum archaeological area ticket office to meet your private guide in time for an 8.30am or 12.30pm departure (depending on tour option chosen).

Use your skip-the-line tickets to head straight inside the archeological site of Herculaneum and follow your guide on a walking tour of the ancient Roman city, admiring ruins that date back to as early as the 7th century BC. Learn how the city was buried by the AD79 eruption of the nearby Mt Vesuvius volcano as you admire the remarkably preserved amphitheater, Decumanus, Palestra, and Basilica; and hear stories of Roman life as you wander around the Forum and peek into the gymnasium and thermal baths. Finally, marvel at the colorful mosaics and carbonized furniture as you explore the grand seafront villa, including the House of Neptune and Amphitrite, the House of the Deer, and the House of the Mosaic Atrium.

After around two and a half hours exploring Herculaneum, your tour ends back at the starting point.

Roberta was amazing! We would have missed so much if she had not been there. Her excitement and knowledge of the site made the tour one of my favorites! Wish i could give 10 stars!

Even though the private tour was a tad expensive, it was well worth it and our guide, Roberta, was brilliant. She knew her subject and delivered it with real passion. It was a delightful and insightful day. I would thoroughly recommend this tour if you are interested in the detail of the Roman civilization and if you are assigned Roberta, you will have a most enjoyable and entertaining day.
