Amalfi Coast Drive (Positano) - Sorrento Photo Stop and Pompeii
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 take you on a coastal drive to the famous Amalfi Coast. He will stop few times along the way to take fantastic panoramic photos of you with the famous Sorrento peninsula with the Gulf of Napoli scenary in the background. During the tour, some cultural and gastronomic general information about the area will be provided along the way (inside the vehicle) by your private driver. Then, you will find yourselves driving to Positano for an incredible free time to spend. See the houses clung to the mountainside like white sugar lumps coated in brightly coloured bougainvillea tumbling down to a small, beach and warm blue Mediterranean sea. According to an old Italian proverb “In Positano you don’t walk along the streets, you climb them”.This amazing village offers you a lot of things for sightseeing and purchasing: the famous Positano-styled fashion, shoes, dresses, hats, Positano styled ceramics, food and architecture. You will have one hour to visit this amazing place and its shops..
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.
On the way to Pompeii, we will drive by Mt. Vesuvius, the volcano responsible for one of the most famous historical events in Italy. The old city of Pompeii is located at the base of the Vesuvius and was flourish during the Period of the Roman Empire. After the eruptions of the Volcano in 79 B.C the city has been destroyed and covered by ashes and lapillus. The Archeological dig started in 1748 and in three centuries only 3/5 part of the city has been discovered. Now the city has been declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO and 3.750.000 tourists each year come to visit it.
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!

Booked an Amalfi Coast Drive Tour. Not only was our tour breath taking based on the scenery, delicious hilltop lunch at Ristorante Da Constantino in Positano, informative Pompeii tour with Lena but our tour guide, Giovanni, was the best tour guide we’ve ever had. He is prompt, courteous, polite, friendly, delightful and informative. Be sure to ask him to sing! Thanks Giovanni. It was a great way to spend the day. We will come back again and be sure to see you.

Our Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Tour with Gio was AWESOME! Gio showed us some of the most beautiful parts of Italy, while carefully explaining the ins and outs of Italian culture and historical facts. He's the best tour guide we've ever had for any tour-like experience. He knew the best places to stop along the way for pictures and was entertaining the entire tour. He even sang us some Italian classics on our way back. This tour is a must when in Italy.

Lovely Amalfi Tours is so easy to work with. They more than accommodated our trip as we were coming during the off season. But they made it work for us.
Giovanni was our friendly, funny and informative guide for 2 whole days and he was EVERYTHING. He made our trip so much more enjoyable.
As a Travel Agency Owner, I take pride in any recommendation I offer. The highest compliment that I can offer, is BOOK with them and do it now, but don't forget to get Giovanni if you can!

Can't say enough about Gio and how he just made our trip complete. From singing Italian to us, well to my wife to just making us feel like he was family. When you plan your almafi trip you must get Gio to take you around. Truly amazing.

I have been to Europe a few times and can honestly say that Amalfi Coast Tours offer the best service by far. Thanks to Gio and the team our stay on Amalfi Coast was the most memorable part our Italia trip. The knowledge and history shared was first class, we had lots of laughs on our travels and I was even serenaded in Italiano which brought me to tears. We were picked up from Naples train station, visited Mt Vesuvius, toured the coast line and dropped off to Positano in paradise for a 3 night stay. When we were ready, we were picked up again and had an amazing drive to the Tivoli Gardens and then our final destination in Rome. I highly recommend having the team drive you to wherever you need to go, believe me, it will be fun and full of adventure. My family and I will definitely be back on the Amalfi Coast and can’t wait to see Gio and the team again.
I have nothing but amazing things to say about lovely amalfi coast tours, from the booking which was easy and they answer all my questions to the whole process it was our first time in Naples and amalfi coast and it was BEAUTIFUL I always remember that trip as one of the best soul searching days for me, not only Giovanni´s way to explain but also the cultural heritage from this places was priceless. I can`t wait to go back actually my sister got back and took the pompeii trip one haha so I am missing my second chance ;)

This is now my third tour with Gio Lovely tours this summer. My partner and I had another amazing day with Gio seeing more sights of the Amalfi coast. I had experienced Gio's wonderful hospitality and service first in 2015 when I travelled with my Mum who was visiting me in the UK from Australia. Then in 2018 with my sister who was also visiting from Australia, this time we stayed in Positano for a week.
We have had Gio all three times and he offers the best service that one can experience. Welcoming, friendly, warm, engaging and you can see the passion and how proud he is of the area he lives in and you cannot help but immerse yourself into his world. He is punctual, he is also has a great sense of humour and a beautiful Italian singing voice :-) he is very open to the world we live in and loves people from all walks of life. If you are looking to go to Italy and seeing this beautiful coast line please look Gio lovely tours up, you will never be disappointed. Also to note I have a had another tour with another person from Gio Lovely tours and he was amazing too. Please know two of our tours were pick and return to Naples and one other tour and driving was pick up Naples, drop off Positano and return to Rome by car stopping off at Tivoli Gardens. This was on top of the day tours we had to Sorrento, Positano and Pompeii. Please look no further. Thank you to Gio and the team. My family and I wish you all the very best during this difficult time and hope the tourism industry returns to what it was very soon and you can get back doing what you do best....Clint & Lee x
