This will effect entrance to the Colosseum as even with skip the line entrance tickets, all guests entering must pass through the metal detector. The length of this line will be dependent upon tourist volume each day, however, we do want to advise that at this time, in low tourist season, with the implementation of the metal detector, the wait to enter is considerable and will affect the timing available to see other sites in Rome.

from Des Moines

Had a fabulous day with Giovanni as our driver/guide. Promptly picked us up at Naples train station and provided an informative day with us..never a dull moment and he new all the great spots to see.in the Amalfi area including Pompei. Took us to a fabulous place in Sorrento for lunch and was very accommodating in every way. There were 6 of us and the van was very comfortable for everyone. Once our full day was done he had us back to the Naples train station and made sure everything was all ok for our return trip to Rome. "Gio" is quite the character and would highly recommend him and this fine company for their tour. It is one of a kind and a great value. This was our 1st tour when we arrived in Italy and what a great way to start out our vacation!!!

from West Seneca, New York

An amazing tour with a fabulous guide! Giovani showed us Ravello, Amalfi and Positano. They made the initial inquiries; the booking and the actual tour so easy! They were delightful to work with. We hope we get to book another tour with them someday. Giovanni was amazing!!!

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!
