We did Pompeii and Herculaneum in one day. I realize my 3 stars is partially due to my own inexperience in navigating ancient sites, but my husband and I were frustrated. The English booklet you are given gives you maybe 10 sentences about each marked...More

This is an amazing archaeological site that is not to be missed. We used the audio guide and found it to be very informative and allowed us to set our own pace. Words really cannot explain or describe all that you will see at this...More

Although Pompei is the main attraction Herculaneum should be seriously considered as an alternative. Pompei is a vast site and finding the best buildings and rooms takes an age and really can't be done in a day. Herculaneum takes all the best parts of Pompei...More

The ancient Roman city of Herculaneum, along with Pompeii are the two cities famously buried under volcanic ash and pumice in the 1st century eruption of Mount Vesuvius. If you’re visiting both these cities like I did, it’ll be a relief to know that Herculaneum...More

Our charming hosts are Italian, so naturally we left the purchasing of the tickets to them. They are both very bright people, yet somehow the purchasing went awry. Although the website didn't ask them to select a date, upon arrival we learned that the date...More
