7 reviews
Wander amid the ancient ruins of Herculaneum with this entrance ticket to the archaeological site. Buried by the Mt. Vesuvius eruption of AD 79 like the nearby city of Pompeii, the ancient city was preserved for centuries by volcanic mud and dust, so exploring it today is like stepping back in time to Roman days. Skip past the main entrance line with your fast-access ticket, then explore the ruins of Roman bakeries, thermal baths, and houses at your own pace.
