About
The ancient city of Herculaneum was a holiday center for the elite of the time, built on a promontory overlooking the Gulf of Naples. Founded according to the myth by the hero Hercules, it was the seat of patrician residences among which the famous Villa dei Papiri stands out. The guided tour begins at the ancient beach, where excavations have brought to light the bodies of about 300 victims. The route continues inside the walls, among aristocratic domus, thermal complexes and shops incredibly preserved and protected by the lava flow that brought them to us.

Private tour in Oplontis and Ercolano
Dec 2019
We used this company for a private tour of Oplontis and Ercolano in English. We really enjoyed the tour: it was very informative, it made us appreciate small details and it gave us the bigger picture too. Our guide was very professional in all communications and very reliable. The pace was perfect. Highly recommended!

Very interesting and educational.

I loved this place. It was mind blowing but so sad to see the original paintings on the walls of the buildings and the people's remains lying in some areas around the site. An amazing place and I preferred it to Pompeii as it wasn't so crowded. If you're in this area, visit Herculaneum. You won't be disappointed.
