Skip-the-lines private tour of Ancient Herculaneum and Volcano Vesuvius with local guide and driver

This full day tour includes a visit to the ruins of the Ancient city of Herculaneum - a city that has been covered and buried by the lava and ashes rain during the Vesuvius eruption of the 79AD - and a walk into the National park of the Vesuvius, that will bring you up to the crater. 

The tour of the excavations will be led by a fully licensed top-rated archaeologist  that knows every corner of the area. You will then walk up to the Vesuvius crater with an expert geologist that will show you the phenomena of the volcano activity, its nature and spectacular views over the bay of Naples.
