Description of Two-hour guided tour of the excavations of Herculaneum

Get ready to travel back two thousand years and discover the ancient ruins of Herculaneum , spared from the devastating Vesuvian eruption of 79 AD.

Today, the city is about 75 feet deep and by visiting it, you can see the marina area where 300 human skeletons have been found.

During the visit we will admire some of the villas of the wealthiest citizens of Herculaneum and other places, such as the garden of the " Casa dell'bergo ", where the quince trees they have been replanted on the charred roots of ancient fruit trees.

The next stop will be the room of the Council of the Augustals , decorated with splendid frescoes depicting Hercules.

Afterwards, you will admire the mosaics of the House of Neptune and Anfitrite and the nearby shop, where the containers of food and wines charred by the eruption are kept, still hanging on the walls. Visit the ancient baths still covered with Roman mosaics in the rooms of the saunas, gyms, frigidarium and calidarium.

The last stop will be the most spectacular villa in the city of Herculaneum, the Villa dei Cervi , with its lush mosaics, frescoes and statues.

An authentic leap into the history of a submerged city restored to its former glory.
