What to expect

Herculaneum is an ancient town that overlooks the Gulf of Naples, famous all over the world for its splendid archaeological Roman excavations. According to a legend, Herculaneum was founded by the mythological hero Hercules. Born in the archaic age, the city was exposed to Samnite, Greek, Etruscan influences, until the preponderant Roman presence, testified by the exceptional state of preservation today. Herculaneum was destroyed by the same eruption of Vesuvius in 79AD, which also razed Pompeii to the ground. Herculaneum began to see the light again thanks to archaeological investigations promoted in 1738, which resumed, after several interruptions, in 1927. The excavations were included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1997.Explore this unique site, its urban fabric, the distribution of the houses, the monumental basilica, the grand spa complex, and the gymnasium. You can walk around the streets of the ancient city and see the perfect state of conservation of the woods, bronze parts and the elevations of the houses that has enabled the reconstruction of everyday life, as well as the various styles of Vesuvian painting.If you wish to learn more about Herculaneum and dive deep into its history, you can add a guided tour to your ticket for 2 hours with an expert tour guide. You'll visit the whole site while you listen to captivating anecdotes, secrets and stories about this world-famous location.

Wow Ercolano
Il sito archeologico è molto bello e con i biglietti prenotati abbiamo saltato una bella coda!

C'era una lunga fila, ma io sono passata alla cassa e mi hanno dato subito il biglietto . Avevo stampato il biglietto con stampante in B/N e il numero d'ordine scritto in ROSSO non si leggeva pertanto ho dovuto mostrare il file in pdf sullo schermo del cellulare

Muy bueno
No había mucha gente en Herculano. Sin embargo es un placer entrar sin esperar. El servicio debería ser con ticket online y no tener q pasar x la caja igualmente. Así sería un excelente.

Visite très bien mais...
La visite du site est chouette mais on s'est vu refusé à l'entrée nos billets coupe-file avec réduction pour enseignants de l'Union Européenne car ils ne le font plus apparemment alors que c'est toujours spécifié sur le site de musement... Attention donc à cette fausse info !
