Herculaneum: Skip The Line Guided Tour With Archaeologist

Dig up the ancient secrets of Herculaneum with an archaeologist

4.8 (154 reviews)

Destroyed in 79 AD by volcanic lava, Herculaneum remains one of the most fascinating clues as to the lives of the rich in Roman times. With more lavish marble and mosaics in its remains than Pompeii, it's clear that Herculaneum's homes were not completely destroyed by the eruption, just buried up to their top floors in ash. Explore with a trained archaeologist and find out how the carbonization in the lava helped to preserve everything from mosaics to roofs, beds, wood, and even sewage!
