  • I was a bit disappointed by this visit. The old city of Herculaneum is still clearly visible and often is clear enough to guess the structure of housing. What is unclear is why you have to pay 11 euros ticket if a part of the excavations is closed. If even you read written in front of some salt that is caused by lack of personal closure. In my opinion the most interesting things are closed. Not to mention the guided tour which is made by non-excavation (but still a certified tour guide) and therefore you pay according to the number of people participating. In General an organization somewhat lacking for a place that would have a lot to offer.

  • A beautiful wintry afternoon around the ruins of Herculaneum then dyed red light of the sunset. Dig much more easily accessible for normal tourist than Pompeii as less confusing. The photos show some mosaics of fine workmanship. I highly recommend visiting

  • Better to see Pompei and look at Ercolano only from the above (for free) as best locations (villa and baths) are closed for public anyway.
  • We came here with our 2 year old baby girl. All of us had a great time. You can walk around and really enjoy and appreciate the way people lived back in the day without a huge crowd surrounding you while you take your time, I think of all the pictures I took only one or two had another person in it that were not us, we had the place for ourselves. The walk from the train station is really easy and pleasant, the people of Ercolano are super nice
  • I prefer Ercolano over Pompei. Less crowded, and because of a difference in how the city was destroyed, there is a greater level of preservation. One interesting difference is much of the wood beaming was preserved by the volcanic ash, not totally consumed by fire. As is the Italian norm, staff levels are diminished due to the country's financial difficulties. As a result, some exhibits are closed.
  • "Mini Pompeii" offers an amazing look into history. This coastal town has a different feel to the bustling Pompeii.
  • Definitely worth the stop, not least because this site gets a tiny portion of the tourists as the expansive Pompeii
