About
It is a private tour, exclusive for your family, and not for a group. You will see a one-of-a-kind archaeological site in the world admired by thousands and thousands of people. The buildings of the city have been preserved in an extraordinary way, here are also visible the second floors and even the remains of beams, furniture and other charred organic finds. Herculaneum was a small, rich and elegant Italian city that overlooked the sea. During the visit, admire houses, baths, streets, fountains with their decorations, frescoes, mosaics and the skeletons of the victims. The city was destroyed by a terrible eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. and was totally buried by pyroclastic avalanches which preserved it for centuries until its rediscovery in 1710 by a local farmer, such Ambrogio Nocerino. It is a journey into Roman history and archeology without equal.

This summer will be our third summer touring Pompeii, Herculaneum and other archeological sites with Paolo. Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the Naples area he is also very kind and engaging. He is always happy to answer questions and always polite. My family and friends always enjoy our time with Paolo and can’t wait to see him again this summer!!!

My husband and I spent a day with Paolo visiting Herculaneum. The site is so amazing- I wasn’t really familiar with it because I had only learned about Pompeii. Herculaneum was beautiful and because Paolo is from Naples, he knew so much about the history of how the discovery was made of this site and how it has progressed as they uncover more relics. Paolo speaks English perfectly and is so friendly, yet very professional. We spent two days with Paolo, also going to Pompeii and I have recommended him to family and friends. He is the best!!
