Amalfi coast (Amalfi - Ravello) - 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. 

Your driver will take you on a coastal drive to the famous Amalfi Coast. You will find yourselves driving down-hill 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 incredible day mixed with ancient Roman history and the present day beauty of one of the most famous coastlines in the world!

from Brisbane, Australia

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 ;)

from LONDON

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

Had an absolute amazing time with Gio. Will always treasure our memories.

from Indianapolis

I had the WONDERFUL good fortune of touring the indescribable Amalfi Coast with Gio in October 2015, along with my friend Anna. Gio is warm and friendly, and handsome to boot! His knowledge of the history and current events of the area is amazing, and our tour was as much fun while we were in the van with him as were the visits to restaurants and shops. He sang to us and kept us totally entertained! My only regret was when it ended.... I HIGHLY recommend Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours! They do not disappoint!

from Coral Springs

Hands down, the best tour of our family trip ! Gio was amazing and made the day most memorable and the one we speak of most often. Can not wait to be able to travel again and go back and see more with Gio and Amalfi Coast Tours! Like traveling with family:)

from Ft. McCoy

I have taken many tours all over the world and this was one of the most fun throughout this adventure along the Amalfi Coast. Giovanni is very knowledgeable and his animated and infectious personality made for a wonderful week. When we return, we will use them again and I would highly recommend them.
