Amalfi Coast  Drive (Amalfi - Ravello) and Herculaneum

The tour will begin after you meet your private driver who will be easily recognizable due to the sign on which will be written your name and our agency logo at the port where your cruise ship will be docked. After a brief presentation your private driver will accompany you at the luxurious vehicle where and will offer you every comfort you need. Furthermore he will give you important information about the travel 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. You will find yourselves driving up to the Milky mountains directly to Ravello, 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. The driver will wait for you for about one hour before leaving.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.

Departing from Ravello you will see other amazing places less known such as Atrani city. We will then reach Amalfi. 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”. But do not forget the food! Restaurants, gelato places, cafes and shops where you can find typical Amalfi styled dishes.

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.

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 in order to reach your cruise ship on time. During the ride to the port, you can reminisce about your lovely day mixed with ancient Roman history and the present day beauty of one of the most famous coastlines in the world!

We highly recommend Giovanni,he is the best person,after the tour he becomes your friend,call and book your vacation with him and you never call any other!!

from Plainfield

This was hands down the best tour we have ever been on! Communication was quick and easy from the beginning. They were sure to confirm our tour and my requests. We started off getting off on the wrong train stop, as I did not realize there were 2 Naples stops! Giovanni was so kind and flexible and ended up driving further out to come pick us up! He did not have to offer that because it was totally my fault, but I am so grateful that he did! He was very kind and welcoming. The van was comfortable and roomy. Right away Gio made us feel like family. We felt as though we were actually being shown around by a close friend or family member, rather than just a tour guide. He was fun and informative. As soon as he found out my husband's name was Rocky, he played "Eye of the Tiger" and they pretty much hit it off and became BFFs! We started in Pompeii, which was amazing! I highly recommend paying for the private tour guide, otherwise you will not really know what you are looking at. There is not much signage. I felt that you need the guide to explain things so you can fully appreciate where you are and what you are seeing. Next we started towards Amalfi coast and it was breath taking at every turn. We stopped at a lemon farm for a private lunch. What an experience! All the food was so fresh and the service was top notch! We literally felt as if we were having a meal at a relatives house. Just AMAZING! We continued on and Gio dropped us off in Positano for some shopping! After that we headed back to Naples. I was so sad that it was ending. It was our first full day of vacation, and what a way to start off! This company does not give tours, they give experiences! Amazing, unforgettable experiences, with memories to last a lifetime! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this trip so special! Don't hesitate to use them...just GO!

from Brooklyn

The best hands down! Every time I come back to Amalfi I will call Gio! He and his team are the best!

from New Cumberland

Had the best day ever with our tour guide Giovanni. We were picked up at the docks and he asked what would we like to see. We asked him what he recommended. We started out on a trip to Ravello. We walked and took pictures of the most beautiful gardens. After a little shopping we headed to Sorento. We stopped at a lemon tree farm and were treated to Italian delicacies. Giovanni was the most entertaining, fun loving young man. I would recommend him 100%.

from Lemoyne

Our day spent in the Napoli area was made more special because Giovanni made sure we had an excellent experience. His energy and sense of humor made our day so much more fun. I liked the company’s upfront pricing and loved where he took us for lunch. Would definitely recommend!

from Smithtown

Enrich, Enrico, Enrico! Fabulous experience on a day trip direct from our doorstep to the lovely towns of Positano and Sorrento. A quiet delicious lunch spot shared with us overlooking Bikini beach was extra special with the most delicious paninis ! We opted for the tour guide at Pompeii, Mike, who shared so much with us that we would never have appreciated in our two hours otherwise. Another super delightful person. As soon as we were done in Pompeii Enrico was right there to meet us and return us back to our doorstep. We will never forget our time with Enrico, his knowledge of the area and the sharing of his family stories as well. We will definitely seek out Lovely Amalfi tours (and Enrico) on our future excursions. @Enrico, we will spend some time in Napoli next! Thank you for everything especially keeping my family safe and laughing the whole time!

from Boston

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.
