Skip the lines to visit one of the most outstanding archaeological sites in Italy & walk around the volcano that buried it, on this excursion to Vesuvius and Herculaneum from Naples.
Vesuvius & Herculaneum Excursion
We'll meet at 9:30 am at Piazza Garibaldi, where we'll board a bus to leave Naples behind and travel to Herculaneum, an ancient Roman city that had even more wealth and more rich cultural heritage than Pompeii.
Upon arrival, we'll give you a skip-the-line ticket to the site, and you'll have time to explore it at your leisure. Don't miss important monuments such as the House of the Deer, the Forum Baths, and the buildings decorated with beautiful and colorful mosaics such as the House of Neptune and Amphitrite.
After three hours of visiting the amazing ruins of Herculaneum, we'll head towards Mount Vesuvius, enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Gulf of Naples along the way.
Upon arrival, we'll ascend to an altitude of 1,000 meters, where we'll get off the bus so you can take the path to the crater of Vesuvius, accompanied by a beautiful view of the Bay of Naples.
The Vesuvius National Park has volcanologist guides who will help you learn much more about the geology of the iconic site. You'll be able to admire the slopes of the volcano formed by solidified lava flows and discover all the secrets of the eruption that buried the cities of Herculaneum and Pompeii in the year 79 AD.
After visiting Vesuvius, we'll return to Naples and drop you off at the starting point around 4:30 pm.
