Duration: 3 hours
Depart from Naples for a 30 min ride to Herculaneum, the ancient Roman city destroyed tragically after the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in AD 79.
When the catastrophe of AD 79 occurred Herculaneum was submerged under a torrent of mud and lava that hardened into a soft tufa (a kind of course rock) that preserved many of the wooden parts of houses and household objects which can be seen today. A large part of the town is still buried, and certainly many art treasures are still to be found.
Exact time will be provided in final documents. Pick up at your hotel.
