Tour from your Hotel of Amalfi coast (Sorrento-Positano) - Herculameum

Departing from: Naples Area, Amalfi Coast Area

Amalfi coast  (Positano - Sorrento) - Herculaneum

Your private driver will greet you at your 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.

Your driver will take you on a coastal drive to the famous Amalfi Coast. You will find yourselves driving down-hill directly through Positano. Houses, archs, domes, streets all together descend from the summit of “Comuni” and “Sant’Angelo tre pizzi” mountains. The houses are completely white, like the famous Greek houses. According to an old Italian proverb “In Positano you don’t walk along the streets, you climb them”. Leaving the city you will be able to see it from a different point of view.

This amazing city 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.

After Positano, we will then drive to Sorrento. Arrived in the city of Sorrento, the private driver will leave you in the historical square called Piazza Tasso, but first of all he will show you the fastest way to go to inner part of the city where you can visit the old churches, museums, the beautiful buildings and the landscapes. You can visit the factory of famous Limoncello; an alcoholic drink made by lemons, sugar and water, a typical Italian product.

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. Then the driver will recommend a suitable time to get back to your hotel (or Naples train station) after this lovely day!.

“A day with Lovely Amalfi Tours in Pompeii, Sorrento and Positano” On our Eastern Mediterranean cruise, we had a day in Naples and decided to take in part of the Amalfi Coast and see Pompeii again. With advice of the company and the skillful driving by Giovanni, we were able to do both and return to the ship on time, despite the traffic delays. Because of our smaller vehicle, we climbed to heights in Positano that buses couldn't reach and had our favourite lunch of the trip at Trattoria La Tagliata--magnificent views, delicious home-style Italian food and very friendly staff! We hired a guide to meet us in Pompeii (arranged by Lovely Amalfi Tours). Our excellent driver Giovanni was very considerate and friendly. We enjoyed our day with him in Naples area and would recommend the tour service to anyone.

“A wonderful day” On disembarking our cruise ship it was easy to find our driver/guide Giovanni. We had an excellent tour along the Amalfi Coast stopping at Sorrento, Positano and Herculaneum and various view points along the way. Giovanni was an brilliant guide, knowledgeable and entertaining. When we stopped for time on our own he explained the layout of the place and the places not to miss so that we were able to make full use of our time. An outstanding tour

We had a wonderful time on our tour of Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast with Lovely Amalfi Tours and our driver Giovanni. We were part of a group of 16 people - 8 each in two vans - organized by someone else on our cruise. Lovely Amalfi Tours arranged for a tour guide to take us through Pompeii at minimal cost since there were so many of us. It was excellent! We were the first group to arrive at Pompeii that morning, just as they were unlocking the gates, so had very few other tourists at the site with us. The drive of the coast was beautiful with lots of stops for pictures. They organized a group lunch for those that wanted it, but were flexible in allowing those that didn't to stay longer in Positano and grab their own lunch. I would certainly recommend this company and wouldn't hesitate to book with them in the future.

“Great trip with Giovanni” If you have a port stop in Naples, or are otherwise in the area and have a day to spend on the Amalfi Coast, book a Lovely Amalfi Tours day tour with Giovanni. You will not be disappointed! Six of us spent the day with Giovanni as our guide/driver, and thanks to his knowledge, his passion, his careful planning, his expert driving, his responsiveness to our wishes and, above all, his wonderful good humor, we had a great day visiting Ravello, Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento. We also stopped at several points along the way for photos, which were, without a doubt, the most beautiful photos from our entire Mediterranean cruise. Thank you, Giovanni, for an outstanding day!

What an amazing day this was - truly one of the highlights of our vacation overall. We booked this excursion to get an overview of the Amalfi Coast area while in the port of Naples on a Celebrity Cruise. Giovanni was our driver and could not have been any nicer or better informed! He knew I was into photography and made sure he stopped in all of the right places for memorable photos. We even stopped to squeeze our own fresh orange juice and he arranged for us to have a lovely lunch in a little restaurant where he knew we would be treated like family! We opted to do the full day tour which began with a drive across the mountain area, and then hugged the coast with stops in Ravello (check out the lovely clifftop villa), Amalfi, Positano, and Sorrento. Perfect day - not a care in the world Lovely Amalfi coast Tours treated us like royalty - and isn't that what vacation is supposed to be about?

from Santa Barbara -US

We recently took a 1 day trip through to the Amalfi Coast all the way to Ravello. Giovanni was fantastic. He was very helpful and on time at every stop. His sense of humor was great and he knew the area very well. Everything went smoothly from my first email to Giovanni all the way to the day of the trip. We highly recommend Lovely Amalfi coast Tours and would do it all over again. Reasonable pricing when you compare it to a ship excursion.
