We enjoyed seeing the ruins of Herculaneum, but the meeting point where we were to pick up tickets wasn't correct. They directed us to the ticket office, so we wasted a few minutes figuring that out.

Handig dat het ticket elektronisch was. We konden direct binnen gaan zondat dat we moesten wachten en de site is echt fantastisch. De moeite van een bezoek waard. Enige verbeterpunt: aan de ingang waren er veel te weinig toiletten.

The whole trip was very enjoyable and a great experience. Seeing the ruins of Herculaneum was very interesting and thought provoking as to life prior to the eruption of AD79. The audio guide was very useful as we walked around and covered many areas in great detail. A must visit.
