  • 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.
