Furthermore he will give you important information about the travel and the places that you are going to visit. Finally, let's get started your dream Private Tour !

On the way to Pompeii, we will drive by Mt. Vesuvius, the volcano responsible for one of the most famous historical events in Italy. The old city of Pompeii is located at the base of the Vesuvius and was flourish during the Period of the Roman Empire. After the eruptions of the Volcano in 79 B.C the city has been destroyed and covered by ashes and lapillus. The Archeological dig started in 1748 and in three centuries only 3/5 part of the city has been discovered. Now the city has declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO and 3.750.000 tourists each year come to visit it.

Now we are going to leave this amazing city for another kind of experience. Thank to its particular climate, the warm soil, its unique florae, the area is amazingly fertile and full of vineyards which produce incredible wines exported in all the world. With this tour you can arrange a visit to the best winery of the region, and probably of the world. The tour will include tasting of wines as “Lachrimae Christi” or “Capafresca” along with an amazing Italian light lunch made with local ingredients.

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 lovely day mixed with ancient Roman history and the best wine tasting of the area!

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 Atlanta, GA

This is an absolute must if you would like to see all that Naples, Sorrento, and the Amalfi coast have to offer. We were a bit dubious (running out of money) about whether it would be worth the cost, but believe me, it's more than worth it. This is an unforgettable experience that we will cherish forever. We started by being picked up in our private car by Gio, one of the friendliest guys in all of Italy. He not only told us about the scenery, but of course we were interested in Italian politics, history, etc. He knows it all. We quickly became friends with Gio. We went to Pompeii first - a great idea because in the am it was less crowded and less hot. Gio let us pick how much time we would like to spend there. 1.5 hours was perfect for us before we started melting. Then we drove up to the coast, stopping at the most breathtaking sights along the way. Gio pulled over and took pictures for us. Learned all about Italy the whole way. We also hesitated to do the lunch offered by the tour, we figured that per usual we would be taken to some tourist trap and charged a zillion dollars for mediocre food. Not a chance! Gio took us to an amazing local spot (review to follow) where we each got a great bottle of wine, house made and organic limoncello and apple liqueur, and the most amazing and filling meal ever courtsey of Mama. The home made lunch was so tasty, and worth the money (way less than other less excellent meals we had) and you really got to hang with the locals. Not to mention, the view - this is a restaurant at the top of a steep hill, and you can see the entire coast from your seats. Amazing. After lunch, we stopped by Positano and Sorrento, two great towns, on our way back to Naples. We made a great friend, Gio, who we will host and show our town to when he decides to visit the states, and will always remember this tour. Thanks so much to everyone at See Amalfi coast, we can't wait to come and visit again! Arrivederci!

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!

from San Antonio US

In August 2013 we did Tour Pompeii, Positano and Sorrento with Lovely Amalfi coast tours. Our driver Giovanni was very nice and he suggested a wonderful restaurant outside Positano for us to have lunch and that was the best meal we had on our 2 week trip. We had several stops for photos and it was a wonderful day! Thanks Giovanni!

from Miami

“Great trip with Giovanni” We had a great time in the Amalfi Coast thanks to our wonderful driver, Giovanni. Giovanni is unlike any stereotypical driver that one would encounter in most cities. He is young, fun, engaging university student who seems to know just about everyone in the Amalfi Coast! The entire private tour went very smoothly. We found Giovanni immediately upon arriving in the Sorrento port as he was waiting for us (along with other drivers). Despite that there were only two of us, we got a large van, which is better for sightseeing because you get to sit higher up and consequently have a better view of the coast. We were able to see all the towns and did not feel rushed at all. Another great thing about traveling with Lovely Amalfi Tours is that the prices are significantly more reasonable than its competitors, with no compromise in the quality of service. I hope it continues to stay that way! But most importantly, Giovanni made us feel like he was a friend showing us around his hometown. And of course, this is always the best way to explore a new place.
