Caserta, once called “La Torre” (The Tower) due to the Torre of the Acquaviva of the Aragonesi, is one of the most important city of the Campania Region. Its growth starts in the 19th century. This ancient urban development is visible thanks to the historical center called “Caserta Vecchia” (Old Caserta). But the most important part of the city is the “ Royal Palace ”, an amazing building mastership of the artist Luigi Vanvitelli. The Reggia is located in Plaza Carlo III. The building was commissioned to Vanvitelli by Carlo di Borbone, it should have witnessed the power of the Borbone family in Italy and in the same time substite the Palace of Naples due to the political instability of that period. The palace has lived many stories, it was bombed in the 1943 during the World War II, it was the place were the surrender of German troupes in Italy was signed in 1945, and was even the set for a Star Wars movie. Majestic outside, inside are the royal apartments, a very fancy examples of interior design of the ‘800. Well known are the gardens outside called “Giardino Inglese” (English Garden) due to its constructor Andrew Garfner and the typically english layout. Built for the Queen Maria Carolina d’Austria, the gardens have so many different trees, flowers, plants, statues, lakes and the famous “Casino all’Inglese” by Vanvitelli.

All the history is amazing, but after a long stroll in the Reggia is now time for the lunch. Why do not try the famous Neapolitan Pizza? Enjoy the original Pizza in the place it was originally created. Taste a traditional but still delicious margherita or Marinara pizza, or enjoy a more creative one with local toppings.

We will then go to the Naples.Today Naples is culturally and politically speaking one of the most important city of all Italy. Many of the main characteristics that come up to mind when people abroad think of the Italians were born here. The idea of extrovert, singer, dancer of tarantella, player of Mandolino, cunning, Italian who enjoys the sun and the sea are actually from here.

Walking along the “lungomare” you can admire the beauties of the city: the landscapes, the sea, the sun and the flourished villas among which the “Villa comunale” where you can find local aquarium. On Margellina street you will find the “Castello dell’ovo”, a legendary castle situated in the sea linked to the ground through a stone bridge. In this magical place it is said that the poet and magician Virgilius used to spell his casts.

But it is not the only castle, not very far from there there is the “Castel nuovo” or “Maschio Angioino”, a “must” here in Naples. You can visit the apartments inside, the towers and even the dungeons where, according to the legends, there was giant crocodile that used to devour the prisoners locked in the cage. And last but not least the “Castel Sant’Elmo”, on the top of the hill next to the “Certosa di San Martino”. A majestic building, from the roof you can sea the entire city of Naples.

Besides the castles there are hundreds of museums and other buildings that are historically important, such as the “Palazzo Reale” (Royal Palace), house of the Royal family and today a museum where the visitors can admire the fancy apartments, the ballet hall, the paintings and the gardens. Next to the Royal Palace, the National library, giant library that hosts unique and original books signed by the most important writers, philosophers and historians; and the Piazza Pebliscito a extremely wide Plaza, or “Teatro San Carlo” an ancient and beautiful theatre you can both visit it and book a ticket for a play.

“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.
