You will marvel at the excavations of temples, homes, shops and bath houses; see ancient art; learn about life in Herculaneum before 79 AD.

Herculaneum and the guide Florenza were the very pleasant surprises of our trip. Our children had fun and learend a lot, perhaps, more than in school. I recommend this tour to any family visiting the area. Patricia R., Toronto, Canada
