Tour description

If you’re staying on the Amalfi Coast or in Naples why not visit the archaeological site of Herculaneum as well as the majestic Mount Vesuvius, whose volcanic ash helped to preserve this Ancient site so well? Travel in style with a private English-speaking driver at your disposition all day and a private guide for a 2 hour tour of Herculaneum.

Our private English-speaking driver will pick you up in a mercedes car or minivan at your hotel for a day trip to Herculaneum and Mount Vesuvius. First your driver will take you to the Ancient Roman town of Herculaneum. Herculaneum was destroyed by the eruption of the Vesuvius in 79 AD, at the same time as the better known city of Pompeii. Here you will meet your local private guide for a 2 hour private tour of Herculaneum. As the town is so close to Mount Vesuvius, although it is smaller and less well-known, Herculaneum is actually better preserved than Pompeii. Herculaneum is also less crowded than Pompeii, allowing you to really travel back thousands of years in time and feel how it would have been to walk the streets in Ancient times. During your private tour of Herculaneum, your engaging guide will explain to you the tragic history of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, as well as Ancient Civilization. You will learn all about the Ancient uses of the buildings still standing today as you visit houses, baths and even restaurants from the Roman times! You will not regret having a guide who is an expert in the Ancient Roman times to talk you through your time in Herculaneum.

After your private tour of Herculaneum, your day trip to Herculaneum will continue to Mount Vesuvius. You will travel with your English-speaking private driver, who is a local and will be able to point out sites of interest as you go. Your driver will be able to take you up to a viewpoint on the slopes of Vesuvius, where you can enjoy a spectacular view over the Bay of Naples and take some great pictures. If you would like you can choose to climb up to the crater of the dormant volcano, accompanied by a volcanologist guide as part of a group tour (tickets to pay on site). This will be a fabulous adventure for anyone who doesn’t mind a bit of a hike! Take a sweater, it may be chilly up there...

If you’re looking for a great day out with a mixture of natural beauty and fascinating history, then RPG’s private day trip to Herculaneum and Mount Vesuvius is not to be missed! You will be able to relax and enjoy the day, without having to worry about a thing.
