Your Tour :

Our excursion brings us along the gorgeous coastal road through Castellammare di Stabia and out along the highway to Herculaneum. It was destroyed along with Pompei in 1979, and rediscovered in 1709. It was a residential town without Pompei’s commercial importance, surrounded by the villas of the wealthy Romans. When the catastrophe of 1979 occurred Herculaneum was submerged under a torrent of mud and lava that hardened into a soft tufa (a kind of

course rock) that preserved many of the timber features and household objects which can be seen today. A large portion of the old Town is still buried under the modern Herculaneum and even today excavations are going on to discover what treasures lie buried under the rock, to the extent that some families are being rehoused so work can continue

IMPORTANT Sometimes certain areas may not be available to visit due to closure for renovation work. The guide will inform the exact itinerary during the tour
