POMPEII & HERCULANEUM TWO TOURS

 More and more travellers are visiting Pompeii ruins. Indeed, touring Pompeii has been the #1 day trip from Rome since 2021.

 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, if not the world.

 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 a couple of 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 working archaeologists, 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.

 NCC (licensed) taxis will move you part of the way between Naples, Pompeii and Herculaneum:

 Naples to Herculaneum (private taxi) c. €60
 Herculaneum to Naples (by suburban train) c. €4
 Naples to Pompeii (private taxi) c. €90
 Pompeii to Naples (by suburban train) c. €4

 You can book these two private taxis online in advance from our transfers partner My Transfers in Naples. When you have booked this activity, we will contact you to advise about required taxi schedules in order to arrive at each tour meeting point on time.

 Pompeii & Herculaneum: Two Tours is a full day excursion of archaeological adventure touring and sightseeing. If you are staying in Rome and want to go further than the Vatican and Colosseum, we will carry you forth!

WHAT TO EXPECT

 Rated 5 / 5 by Andrew P on December 18th, 2023  Two brilliant tours organized by the best tour operator in Rome. Impeccable service from the get go and a huge pat on the back for Tours Manager Pete. He's the man you need when in Rome.

 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 venue from Naples station. We don't do bus tours nor do we wait for them. Very satisfied with the experience.
