Ruins of Herculaneum

Naples, Italy

Ruins of Herculaneum

DETAILS

  • 31/2
    hrs Estimate Duration

Mainly a fishing village, Herculaneum was most appreciated for its position overlooking the Bay of Naples. It became very rich as it was chosen as a summer resort by wealthy Romans who built wonderful villas adorned with frescoes, mosaics and great sculptures. There’s a feeling about Herculaneum that’s quite different from what one feels in other ancient world centers brought to light so far, including Pompeii. The torrent of mud flooding down from the volcano served for centuries as the best possible defense against atmospheric agents and illegal excavators. See the houses, shops, and baths, including wooden elements, foodstuffs and fabrics that are preserved intact, thus offering a unique vision of their lives long ago. En route, visit a cameo factory nearby to see how the famous jewelry is made and then have some time to browse the store.


Need to Know:

Note: Participants must be able to walk 1 mile over uneven, cobblestone terrain and able to manage approximately 30 steps. Large bags, backpacks, wheeled carts and trolleys aren’t permitted in Herculaneum.
