When we arrived from Rome at the train station there was NO ONE to help transport luggage. There were two sets of stairs you needed to navigate (going up and down) before going out to taxi location. Horrible for travelers especially elderly who need help.
Taxi drivers very efficient. It's too far to walk to the port from the train station--worth the short taxi ride.
Our guide was a older gentleman who obviously loved doing the tour. Herculaneum is a smaller site than Pompeii and really worth seeing. One of the cruisers commented to me they'd gone to Pompeii and almost everything was closed off! Not the case here. Lots of terrific pictures of well maintained site.
Beautiful port and gorgeous location. Took a private car with 4 others which we had for the entire day. The driver was not pre booked. We just went out of the port and there were many drivers there.
We toured around the entire area including Ez, Nice, Monte Carlo, and another small village. Very worth while and we drove about and toured for over 8.5 hours. He charged 450 euro for up to 6 people. Would recommend this for a group. Perfect especially if a mixed group like ours with elderly moms who couldn't walk that far nor go up a lot of stairs. The driver would meet us at the spot where we left him which made for such an easy day.
City tours are great to get a over all picture and decide what you want to see the next day as we were in port over night. After being on a private taxi the prior port, we got tired of the bus and took a cab back to ship.
