We visited Herculaneum after visiting Pompeii. It was well worth the effort and a great contrast to the size of Pompeii. An interesting fact being that a lot of the city that was destroyed is actually situated under the new city so is unlikely to...More

Tour of Herculaneum which is a smaller site than Pompeii, but which is perfectly formed. Absolutely incredible insight as to what life was like 2,000 years ago.

Had no trouble understanding the guide. I find when you use the audio tours you miss out on the personal stories and knowledge that the guides expound upon.
