  • Quite a lot of the history of our civilization, clean and well structured. Recommended for large groups and family visits.

  • We did a family outing. The excavations are of great interest. The works are well preserved. The impact is considerable. If you want to understand Pompeii must see even Herculaneum.

  • Nice digs, not as large as those of Pompeii because the rest is still in and it is not possible to bring everything to light, but they deserve. At the entrance you can make a ticket that also includes a visit to the excavations of Pompeii, so buy for less. To get there without a car you should take the circumvesuviana train from Naples, in 20 minutes arrivte to the station of Herculaneum excavations, I think they're 10 stops, exit the station and at the roundabout outside the station get straight on the main road in front of you is dropping at the end of the road you find the excavations, around 10.15 min walk. Some advice on the same road coming down on the right a hundred meters one of the excavations on the right, find the virtual Archaeological Museum, beautiful, and in different languages. Check it out!

  • 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
