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!.

Gio was the best tour guide we had on our day trip along the Amalfi Coast. He asked what we wanted to do and arranged it. He had us laughing but was also very informative with the different places we visited. Thank you Gio for making our last day here in Italy so memorable.

from Toronto

Giovanni and the entire team at Lovely Amalfi Tours are incredible. From the day we booked to the day we flew home the whole team made sure our trip was as amazing as possible. The entire team is friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. Lovely Amalfi Tours went above and beyond. We thought we were just booking a tour, but in reality we ended up with a guide. Giovanni had all of the best recommendations for the area, set us up at an incredible restaurant during our tour and even called restaurants on our behalf to get us the best reservations after the tour was over. The tour was fun, informative, comfortable and safe. The Amalfi Coast is an intimidating drive, but Giovanni and his team are obviously experts at navigating the tough terrain. We had lots of laughs, chats and dancing with Giovanni throughout the tour and we can’t wait to come back to experience the breathtaking scenery with Lovely Amalfi Tours again soon. If you are planning a trip to Amalfi, Giovanni and his team should be the first call you make! Thank you so much Giovanni and the entire Lovely Almafi Coast team for your warm hospitality and once in a life time experience you gave us! We can’t wait to come back to visit and book again! ❤️🇮🇹

from London

My family and I were incredibly privileged to have had a guide as warm, knowledgable and welcoming as Giovanni. From his prompt arrival to his positive and friendly attitude, Giovanni made the trip an experience to never forget. Giovanni facilitated a seamless journey as we discovered the history of Naples, the beauty of the Amalfi coast, and the quant and breathtaking town of Sorrento. Giovanni communicated in a professional yet personable manner that captivated and enlightened us as we learnt about the profound history, culture and traditions of the area. Not only were we able to make great use of our time thanks to Giovanni’s vast array of awareness with respect to the best locations to visit and explore, but he also treated us to incredible food that made the trip even more delightful. Giovanni is a lovely person and I would certainly recommend him to anyone thinking about visiting the south of Italy. He will truly make your experience worthwhile!

from Washington DC

Amazing day with Giovani to the Almafi Coast and Ravello. My son chooses it, and booked ahead. It was breathtaking, amazing views. We took a train from Roma to Naples, then Giovani, our tour guy, was waiting for us at the train station. Giovani was a very nice, polite, smart and friendly person. In addition to his very friendly approach and good sense of humor, he makes us so comfortable. We were talking, laughing, and singing together. We feel like we have known him for a long time. We highly recommend it for sure. Blessed Day!🙏🏾

Look no further, Gio the singing Amalfi Coast tour guide is your man! From the moment we met Gio he was very personable, made sure he knew all our names and connected with each of us! He picked us up in style in his Mercedes van at our hotel and it was very comfortable. He is very passionate, experienced and knowledgeable about his job and the Campania region! We stopped at many scenic sites along the way where we could take the most amazing photos and of course with Gio too! He makes sure everyone is happy and comfortable. We stopped at a beautiful family owned restaurant along the Amalfi and had the best meal we've had in all of Italy! Anthony the owner was amazing! Excellent food and most beautiful views! We made it to Positano and Amalfi and spent our free time there to shop and see the sites. We didn't make it to Ravello because of the rain storm with hail. Yes in May!! However it was not storming in Gio's van! Just a lot of laughter and singing! Gio made our family vacation of 5 unforgettable and we will Treasure it forever. Your search is over, knowledge, experience and excellent prices!! Sandy from Huntsville, Ontario, Canada I 1109/100

from Almalfi coast and Rome

Giovanni was absolutely wonderful and entertaining for our guide for Amalfi coast and Sorrento, he showed us so much and took us to a spectacular mountain top restaurant. The views were outstanding. Carlo, our guide in Rome showed us more than we had ever seen, and is knowledge of the history was amazing. Both were so kind and professional, we could not have asked for more. I would recommend them to everyone!
