ARCHAEOLOGICAL TOURS

  • Ancient Herculaneum
  • Decumanus Maximus

    Decumanus Maximus

    The archaeological remains of the ancient town of Herculaneum are remarkable and unique. They give us an idea of the kind of life that ancient people used to live before the Vesuvius covered the entire city under a thick layer of volcanic material. Herculaneum was a well known resort town where wealthy Romans used to spend their holidays and enjoyed meeting friends and acquaitances to discuss about philosophy and other matters. The remains are spectacular and they offer a unique opportunity to walk along streets that were always bustling with people more than two thousand years ago. We can visit the Thermal Spas of the Forum, a few refined dwellings, the Shrine of the Augustals, the Decumanus Maximus, a few shops and we will see marble reliefs, mosaics, frescoes and carbonised timber which is still in good conditions. This enchanting old city will amaze even the more skeptical traveller who will experience a journey into the past.
