Practical Info

This special tour is not only made-for-children – to arouse their interest – but mainly made-by-children-on-tour: kids will be the actual guides of the excursion finding their way through our special map. Through games, riddles, clues, mimes, etc.. the map of the Ancient City will be reconstructed with its inhabitants and its life.

During the visit, some games will award the kids of little characters to stick to the map – which they can take home.

At the end of tour, each child will be provided with our original Herculaneum4Kids Activity-Book to continue the discovery of Herculaneum and the Roman World on their own.

The aim of the tour is to provide families or small groups with children with a chance to visit the highlights of the Archaeological area without the risk of getting tired or bored

On the 8th April 2019 we did the Herculaneum for Kids tour, Pompeii and also lunch at the foot of Mt Vesuvius. The day trip was excellent and our 9-year-old daughter thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
Giuseppe was our tour guide for the day, we were picked up from our hotel and taken to the destinations. He was very passionate and knowledgeable about the ruins. He made the day fun and also educational. We had an exceptional day out and it was the best. Great food and Wine at the Vineyard at the foot of Mt Vesuvius.

Leisure Italy Tours were very helpful in organising a tour that would fit our family – Thanks Vincenzo.

I would highly recommend this tour company again.
