Dear Travel Agony Aunt,
How do I pre purchase tickets to visit the Villa Dei Papiri in Herculaneum? I will be leaving the state on Sept 15.Thank you. Arnold from California
Tickets to the Villa of the Papyri can be purchased at the entrance of the Scavi Archeologici di Erconalo, also known as Herculaneum (direction: Corso Resina, 187, Ercolano). Though there is no additional cost for visiting the Villa, advance, timed tickets are required. In addition, keep in mind that you must pick up your entrance ticket at least 20 minutes before the time indicated on the reservation voucher. For further information regarding the ticket prices and opening hours of the archaeological site, can call the visitor center at (0039)0817324311.
Enjoy your visit to Herculaneum!
