What to expect

Buried under a torrent of mud and lava after Mt Vesuvius erupted in 79AD, the ancient Roman town of Herculaneum is a sight to behold. You'll take it all on in this half-day tour from Amalfi. In about two hours, you'll see the most important sites, including the public baths and the lavishly decorated villas of well-to-do families.

Everything is so well-preserved in Herculaneum that you can walk down the streets pretty much exactly as the Romans would have done over 2,000 years ago. Your guide will show the original timbers in buildings and clay pots stored as they would have been at the time of the eruption.

And that's not all – the public baths still feature their frescoes and mosaics, and there's the shop and gymnasium to peek into, too. Not to be missed are the skeletons – which were preserved by ash – of victims who sought shelter in boat houses It promises to be a fascinating half-day trip.
