We booked a private Herculaneum tour for our family of five (kids aged 12, 11, and 8)in December. We chose Herculaneum over Pompeii because it is smaller, more preserved, and less crowded. Our guide was Federica, and she was absolutely amazing. She helped the children to learn about the history in a fun way, yet had valuable information for the adults as well. This tour was one of our kids favourite parts of our Italy trip, as well as a highlight for my husband and me.
