Wander amid the ancient ruins of Herculaneum with this entrance ticket to the archaeological site. Buried by the Mt. Vesuvius eruption of AD 79 like the nearby city of Pompeii, the ancient city was preserved for centuries by volcanic mud and dust, so exploring it today is like stepping back in time to Roman days.

Skip the line is a joke! There is no separate desk for skip the line, so you have to queue up with everyone else to get paper tickets issued because the scanner at the gate does not read barcodes in e-tickets.
Once through the ticket barrier there is no clear direction on which way to go, on the map the tour starts at the boat-sheds but the obvious path over the new bridge does not go there directly. There is a huge tunnel which you should go down but I couldn't find the upper entrance! In the small bookshop you should be able to buy a guide book but they had run out of English language editions none up in the ticket office either, very bad planning. There were precious few souvenirs either.

The actual ruins are amazing, the site is quite small and personal, I preferred it to Pompeii.

Having toured round for a couple of hours or so we went back to the 'visitor centre', there is no proper cafe, just some vending machines with drinks of snacks but don't drink too much because the toilets are abysmal! Ladies is in the old gents complete with urinals, cubicles are so tiny its a squeeze to get in/out, no toilet seat, used toilet paper goes into a bin!
This amazing site deserves far better facilities than it has.
