Amalfi coast (Sorrento-Positano) - Herculameum

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!.

We had a wonderful time with Enrico, Giovanni and Lina on our tours of Pompeii, Herculaneum and the Amalfi Coast and we highly recommend Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours! We not only learned a lot but we also consider our 3 guides as our friends and we hope they will contact us if they ever visit the US. Happy Holidays to everyone at Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours!

from CYPRESS

We visited the Amalfi Coast with our guide Enrico in early Oct. 2017. Enrico showed such a passion he has for the Amalfi Coast, He was fun, talkative, and Informative about the area of the world he lives. He knew the best spots for photos, and recommended the most beautiful spot for a lunch I have ever seen. Thanks to Enrico for providing us such an amazing start to our vacation. Will request him again when we return to that most beautiful part of the world.

It is hard to find enough adjectives to describe how much our group of six enjoyed the experience with Love Amalfi Tours. Giavani was our driver and we too feel like we made a new friend. We took two tours and it was hard to say goodby to him after our second tour. He is warm, funny, smart, and very informative and creative in the ways he takes you on the excursion you sign up for. We all have travelled a lot and taken many different tours and all six of us agreed that this was the best experience we have ever had. We continue to talk about how much fun we had and how incredibly beautiful the places we went with Giavani were. We also had Lina as our guide for Pompeii and Herculean and she was vey informative and adeptly helped us get through the crowds at Pompeii while giving us a full understanding of the history there. Don't even look elsewhere for another tour company. There is no question that the way this company is run that it is the very best. We would use them again for all of our tour and transportation needs. We hope to return and must thank Giaviani for making our trip to the Amalfi Coast so very special and so much fun!

from Westlake Village, CA

We spent a week at a Villa in Positano and booked two tours through Lovely Amalfi Tou poprs. Our driver was Giovanni. He was professional, pleasant, funny and knowledgeable. On our tour of Pompeii and Herculaneum we also booked a guide for each sight. Lina was our guide and clearly knew the history. We would not have known what we were looking at had we not had Lina guiding us. What is amazing about Lovely Amalfi Tours is that all the drivers and guides are employees. They do not use third party companies to manage their tours. I couldn't have been happier with this choice. I would use them again and would not hesitate recommending them to family and friends.

from Canada

Our trip to Amalfi coast was made heavenly because of Lovely Amalfi Tours and Giovanni. The service provided was excellent and efficient. Customer service of Melania was fabulous. Gio made sure we saw every inch of Amalfi and his lunch suggestions were fabulous. My most favourite memory is Gio singing to beautiful classics driving along the beautiful coastline of Positano. Best experience ever!

Enrico was our wonderful guide who went out of his way to assure we enjoyed our day! He is very knowledgeable and took us to a wonderful restaurant in Positano! Enrico is an exceptional guide with a pretty good singing voice too!

from Titusville

Our day visiting the towns along the Amalfi Coast with Gio was an experience never to be forgotten. Every place was beautiful and seeing them with Gio and listening to him singing happily as he drove us safely along the winding roads was a fabulous day. We feel like we have a new friend in Italy! Wish we could do it all over again tomorrow!
