Amalfi coast Drive (Amalfi - Ravello) - Herculaneum

Your private driver will greet you at your Hotel / accommodation (or Naples train station), after a brief presentation you will be accompanied to the luxurious vehicle where our staff will offer you every comfort you need. After that they will give you important information about the tour and the places that you are going to visit. Finally, let's get started your dream Private Tour !

Your driver will drive you up to the famous Milky Mountains and he will give you chance to take an incredible pic of Mt. Vesuvius and Naples area from that beautiful chain mountains. Once arrived in Ravello,you will have time to visit this lovely little town , famous for its nature and for the Villas like Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo, whose gardens are full of different kind of flowers, plants and trees, especially lemon and orange trees for whom the coast is famous. Villa Rufolo sits on a ledge that has attracted thousands of visitors over the years, thanks, in large part, to the inspiration it provided Giovanni Boccaccio in his Decameron and as the location where Richard Wagner composed the second act of his opera “Parsifal” in 1880.Each summer since 1953 the “Ravello Festival” has honored Wagner with concerts held on the dramatic Villa Rufolo stage overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea.

After this incredible visit, your driver will take you on a coastal drive (the famous Amalfi Coast) heading to Amalfi town. This one is such an important city for the Campania region that it gives its name to the entire coast. Here you can find several touristic spots such as the cathedrals next to the sea, the shopping streets, the museums and the square “Piazza del Duomo” and its unique church, the beautiful "Sant'Andrea Cathedral".The Amalfi Cathedral is a striking structure with 62 steps leading to its entrance. Its façade is Arabic-influenced Romanesque with a bold mix of stripes, arches, mosaics and textures. The bell tower and cupola are decorated with green and yellow tiles. The heavenly Cloister of Paradise is home to the tombs of Amalfi's wealthy merchants and features Moorish styling in white marble. The Crypt of St. Andrew is located in an altar decorated with beautiful Baroque murals dating from 1660.

At this point it’s time for a nice lunch, trust our staff and you will enjoy a incredible meal made by local ingredients, such as seafood and handmade fresh pasta. Alternatively you can have a pizza or a panino, something quicker but equally delicious. Stopping for lunch will be according to your needs and your time.

The eruption of the Vesuvius, that destroyed Pompeii, hit the city of Herculaneum too with a huge tsunami of dirt and lava. But unlike Pompeii, the city of Herculaneum preserved wooden buildings and any sort of goods. Therefore for archeological studies is a very important site. Sculptures, paints, vases and so on are now in the “Archeological Museum of Naples” and in the “Antiquarium”.Ancient tradition connected Herculaneum with the name of the Greek hero Heracles, an indication that the city was of Greek origin. There is, however, historical evidence that toward the end of the 6th century BC a primitive nucleus of Oscan-speaking inhabitants came under Greek hegemony there and that in the 4th century BC Herculaneum came under the domination of the Samnites. The city became a Roman municipium in 89 BC, when, having participated in the Social War (“war of the allies” against Rome), it was defeated by Titus Didius, a legate of Lucius Cornelius Sulla. 

Before leaving your private driver please agree upon the time to leave. Then the driver will recommend a suitable time to get back to your hotel/ accommodation (or Naples train station) after this lovely day!.

Traveling internationally can feel overwhelming. With a special destination like Italy, you hope everything goes perfectly. Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours helped make our travels to Italy wonderful experiences. (We booked with them in 2019 and 2022 and hope to again soon!). Transfers are on time, professional, safe and reliable. Tours are fun and interesting and the destinations are beautiful. Professional, knowledgeable drivers like Marco and Carlo allow you to relax and enjoy while they take care of the rest! After a 9 hour flight, we appreciated a reliable, comfortable transfer from the airport to our hotel in Florence. Lovely Amalfi Coast happily accommodated our request to stop in Montepulciano for lunch and wine. Two days later we took private Tuscany Coutryside tour with Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours. Beautiful scenery with a friendly, knowledgeable driver with stops in Siena, San Gimignano and lunch and wine tasting. An experience that should not be missed! Thank you Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours team! We hope to visit again soon.

from WEST PALM BEACH

We had an amazing day with Stefano. It was our first time in Italy and we learned soo much from him. Ive always believe it is such a different experience when you have a private driver rather than being on a bus with 50 other people. We shopped and drank wine and had an amazing lunch at one of the Watch Towers along the Amalfi Coast. TRULY AN UNFORGETTABLE DAY!. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SERVICE!!!!

from Sydney

What can we say Vincenzo was the perfect host for the day, very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and his passion for the Amalfi coast is so heart warming and infectious. Taking us to Positano, Amalfi and Ravello, he was an amazing g guide for the whole trip. Recommending and taking us to Lunch, by boat, to “da Teresa” was definitely a highlight of the day. Would totally recommend Lovely Amalfi tours, and Vincenzo as your guide. Just a fantastic day, check it out @ziosime72 . Mille Grazie Vediamo fra pocco

from Taunton UK

What a fab day with Giovanni touring the Amalfi Coast. He was knowledgeable, funny, prompt and accommodating. We learnt about the history of his country and traditions of family life. Giovanni’s vocals accompanying Andrea Bocelli in the car was a bonus. Giovanni made the day for us and I can’t rate the tour highly enough. You won’t find a better guide to show you the highlights of this beautiful region. We plan to stay in touch.

from Vancouver, BC, Canada

The best private tour experience ever! I booked the Naples-Pompeii-Lunch in Positano-Amalfi Coast experience so that it’s easier to get from Naples to Amalfi with my two friends. Melania (admin) was very prompt in answering my questions and made it super easy to book the tour. Our tour guide, Giovanni, was really courteous, friendly, informative and passionate about history! We learned so much about Italian culture and even made friends outside of the tour, through Giovanni! Couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide and entertaining car ride! HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

from London

We went on a tour with Gio 6 years ago and have returned with our children to do some more of his tours! So informative and an amazing personality, takes the time to get to know his guests, could not recommend this more. We have been on the Private Amalfi Coast Tour, visiting Positano & Ravello today and had a great time. We are looking forward to our trip to Pompeii and Vesuvius next week. Hopefully the serenading continues!
