More and more travellers are visiting Pompeii. Indeed, touring Pompeii has become the #1 day trip from Rome.
How many of these travellers see Herculaneum before or after Pompeii? The vast majority don't, so we have created this double-header excursion from Rome that takes in the two most important archaeological sites in Italy.
Pompeii is the "destroyed city", Herculaneum the "preserved city", ergo you'll see frescoes and mosaics in Herculaneum that are vastly superior to those that adorn the houses and villas of Pompeii.
Herculaneum is smaller than Pompeii, so it's possible to get a clear picture of its story in just a few hours. Travellers are known to return to Pompeii, to further explore the expanse of ruins in search of undiscovered secrets and untold stories.
On Pompeii & Herculaneum: Two Tours, you get two fast bullet trains Rome - Naples - Rome, two guided tours with an archaeologist, and first entrance tickets to each site. You will depart from Rome early, near 7am, so set the alarm clock the night before!
Your guided tour of Herculaneum in the morning is followed by a guided Pompeii tour in the afternoon.

::: WHAT TO EXPECT
Rated 4.7 / 5 by Adam L on July 29th, 2019 We were very excited to be able to visit both sites from Rome and the day was expertly planned by Peter at Eternal Tours Rome. His archaeologist guides, Gino and Lucia, were just brilliant. Herculaneum was the highlight for us, Pompeii just too big for a two hour tour. The taxis were very convenient and so easy to book online, they banished all our worries about transfers to each site from Naples. We don't do bus tours nor do we wait for them. Very, very satisfied with the overall experience.
