What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Parco Acheologico di Ercolano, Corso Resina, 80056 Ercolano Italy

Born in the Archaic age and initially affected by an indigenous settlement, the city was subsequently exposed to the Samnite, Greek, Etruscan influences, up to the preponderant Roman presence, whose civilization is today witnessed by the exceptional state of preservation. Located on a volcanic plateau, overlooking the sea, Herculaneum, like the other Vesuvian cities, was covered by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD whose products, by settling, buried it to reach a thickness of twenty-three meters. The city was brought to light during excavations conducted by the Bourbons.
