  • Indescribable charm and excitement in stepping on a soil as old and sorely tried, as the remains of the population can still be seen. A site of such importance deserves trained and specialized in welcoming visitors. The entrance is not clearly pointed out that the most visible parking is reserved for buses, so many we are on coming rudely urged to quit a caretaker who barely spoke in Italian. At the ticket office there was provided free schematics we discover only be available when we address the newsstand that provided those charges. Luckily she consoled the beauty of excavations really superb.

  • just put your feet on the antique flooring do you realize what you're living a unique experience on back to basics where man though not as technologically advanced as it is today did not miss anything comfortable and beautiful homes. Not to mention the market and organized and disciplined in urban service road excellent you see the hand of the creative man and a culture that perhaps did not exist in other places see barbarians and roosters, but the thing that strikes you the most is the quality of the things which are seen are almost intact what about one of the most beautiful sites that exist.

  • Easy access by train from Naples. 2 h 30 visit with two children between 7 and 9 years old. This site is a mini Pompeii. A concentrate of the architecture of the 1st century. We had visited the day before the Archaeological Museum of Naples featuring mosaics, statues and objects of Herculaneum and Pompeii. It was a very pleasant visit.

  • Fantastic archaeological site. You can really see the scale of the destruction that Vesuvius dealt here, as the site is do deeply buried under the modern town, with the site sitting on what used to be the shoreline! Pompeii has the scale and sheer size, but Herculaneum is better if you want to see more intimate details of the impact of the eruption.
  • We were recommended to go here instead of pompai (by my parents that had been to both) as this place was preserved a lot better and it didn't disappoint. Had a great guide. Really interesting place to visit.
  • Such a wonderful day. We tried to see it all & almost managed it. Delighted to see so much of the history is left in situ unlike Pompeii which seemed to be stripped bare. So interesting.
  • The most amazing ancient village I've ever seen. (And I have traveled to a few countries) everything has been protected by ashes and mud before the lava comes down. I really felt like in an antique estate showroom. You can see everything as it was. The bakery, the snack bars, the baths, the brothel, the shops... Very impressive!
  • Surprisingly good (and I did arrive with high hopes)! You can walk the streets on ancient Herculaneum, see the homes, taverns, and shrines. It's pleasantly vertical, so it made for a picturesque morning or evening. Don't rush this. There's always more around a corner, up the stairs, or across the garden. Guides were capable and multilingual. If you're interested, it's a good idea and they'll help ensure you see everything.
