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!.

from Tinley Park

From start to finish our wonderful day touring the Amalfi coast with Giovanni as our guide and driver was fantastic. Arranging the tour was easy to do on the website and Melania emailed us promptly with answers to all of our questions. Despite the rainy weather, Giovanni's sunny disposition and gracious hospitality made the tour a very memorable and enjoyable day for us. I would highly recommend anyone visiting Italy to book a day with Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours and to ask for Giovanni!!

from Murray

The Amalfi Coast is a MUST SEE for anyone visiting Italy - and the tour through Lovely Amalfi Tours is a great way to see it! Be sure to request Giovanni as your driver, he has us laughing the whole tour. Another quick tip for this tour, be sure to ask to stop for lunch at the restaurant "Da Costantino" outside of Positano. The food and the view from this restaurant completely enhanced this tour. The Amalfi Coast tour was worth every penny!

from Laguna Beach, CA

BEST DAY EVER! My husband and I enjoyed our entire day with Giovanni. I've been booking travel for years and will send all of my clients, friends and family to spend the day with Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours. Our day on the Amalfi coast has created memories that will last a lifetime. Don't hesitate to book your tour! We're already trying to figure out how to come back and do it again!

Our family book a trip-tour from Amalfi to Paestum and from Paestum to Naples airoport. It was a very good experience, everything was perfect (the driver very polite and skillfull, Francesca, our guide, very nice and with many usefull information about this region). The report quality price was unbeatable. I strongly recommend this company.

from ohio

I am NOT one to typically write reviews but this was an experience of a lifetime for my husband and I. As I write this please know that I had the most amazing time with the Amalfi tours and Giovanni. He was so accommodating and showed us parts of Italy that we will never never forget. He was very respectful and knowledgeable. He made the tour fantastic and I would recommend this tour to anyone that is touring the Amalfi Coast. Make sure you ask for Giovanni.

from Victoria, BC, Canada

Thank you Giovanni for making our day in Naples so memorable and enjoyable. We appreciated your flexibility in planning our day. We felt like you were a good friend showing us around and your pride and love for your country was infectious. The vehicle was pristine and comfortable for the six of us. We'd love to go back and the first person we would call is you!! We highly recommend your tour company and people may contact us if they have questions.

from San Francisco

“An amazing Day in Pompeii, Sorrento and Positano!!” We were part of a group of 8 on a 7 night cruise, and this was probably my favorite port day! Giovanni was our driver and he helped make this day fun and memorable. He got us to Pompeii early so we beat the crowds and could really enjoy our visit. He is a highly skilled driver (not easy on the Amalfi coast Road) and took us to some beautiful lookout places for stunning views/photos of the Amalfi coast and Positano! He arranged a really nice lunch for us in Sorrento, recommended the perfect street for us to pick up last-minute gifts, and he made sure we were on time for the ship. I would definitely recommend Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours and Giovanni, and hope I get the chance to use this service again someday!
