Herculaneum

Didn't need to pre-book as site not busy. Small site but very interesting. If visiting independently of a tour some sort of guide is helpful.

Not sure the skip-the-line ticket was needed
Sep 2019
We arrived at about 10am on a Tuesday out of term time. Place was quite quiet, and we didn`t need to have booked this ticket. We had a slight problem in that having booked, Askos didn`t send me the pdf of the ticket (which they send out the day before your arrival). However, the lady in the ticket office rang Askos who then called me on my mobile and sent it to me by whatsapp - I think that`s really excellent service by both the ticket office and Askos.

Tour of Herculaneum with Archeologist guide
Sep 2019
We had a most wonderful tour with Dr Luciano Leone, who was very knowledgeable and is an archeologist who works on the herculaneum excavations. He was so enthusiastic about his subject and he really brought the excavations to life. I would highly recommend this tour.

Hhhmmm
When I got to Herculaneum there was a tiny queue. I skipped it and went to the turnstile to be told I had to take my skip the queue voucher back to the ticket office and exchange for tickets that would scan at the turnstiles. So had to queue anyway!!

I’m giving two stars, not one, on the basis that Herculaneum is amazing and that I may have misread the instructions but in hindsight would have taken a different approach to the day - maybe even a guide which we took at Pompeii.

Really interestingly place to visit.
Aug 2019 • Couples
I had been told Herculaneum is better than Pompeii and I quite agree. It is much smaller and with the audio you get a great overview of the history of the site.

NO SKIP THE LINE QUEUE AT THE TICKET OFFICE. My pre purchased tickets couldn’t be found on the list. They let us in anyway. Don’t bother with pre purchase, the queues are not long.

A smaller Pompeii and easier to understand. Much still to be excavated.
May 2019 • Couples
We went on 30th of May 2019 and there was not line to skip. But with only one ticket office if there had been a queue we would not have been able to skip it. The tickets we printed out at home kept referring to the fact that another ticket would be issued but this never arrived. On the other hand the ticket desk accepted what we hand been sent . The uncertainty was a bit irritating.
Herculaneum was very interesting but lacked the big squares and the amphitheater of Pompeii. The free map & paper guide along with the audio guide was more than sufficient for us. Try to understand the Latin terms for building features as I found it a bit baffling at times. No cafe as such, but seats and tables together with vending machines selling snacks, ice cream and coffee. We only covered about 75% in 5 hours. I have a bit of a sore hip but I was able to manage. A great day out.

Baggage deposit

Inquiring if there is a baggage deposit at the ruins of Ercolano on the premises like you have at Pompei
