The Ruins of Herculaneum - ES08

OVERVIEW: When Mt. Vesuvius erupted, covering Pompeii in ash, it also entombed nearby Herculaneum. This guided walking tour explores the unusually well-preserved city of Herculaneum, which remained undiscovered until it was accidentally revealed in 1709. HIGHLIGHTS: See well-preserved artifacts of ancient Roman life at the site which was covered by a torrent of mud, which protected the ruins from atmospheric agents and illegal excavators. Time permitting; you'll stop at a cameo factory. NOTES: Guests must be able to walk approx. 1.5 miles over cobblestones and uneven ground. Herculaneum is not wheelchair accessible.

Overview: Stroll among the remains of the Roman town buried in the same volcanic eruption that destroyed Pompeii. Although significantly smaller than the nearby ancient city, Herculaneum is much better preserved, having been encased in mud and lava for centuries. Ongoing excavations have revealed mosaics, wall paintings, wooden elements, foodstuffs, fabrics and other artifacts that, together with your guide's commentary, form an intimate look at life in a seaside resort 2,000 years ago.
Highlights: Structures and Artifacts: Upper stories of buildings and houses, wooden beds and doors - even food - remain intact. Lavish Decor: Get close to intricate mosaics, inlaid marble floors, and the only intact library surviving from antiquity. Beautiful Italy: Enjoy views of the Neapolitan countryside on the 50-minute ride to the ancient seaside resort.
What to Bring: Sea Pass card and photo identification Camera Cash/Credit cards Sun protection
What to Wear: Walking shoes Hat and sunglasses
