Tour from your Hotel of Herculaneum - Winery (Optional) - Pompeii

Departing from: Naples Area

Pompeii - Winery  (Optional) - 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.

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 ruins 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. Then the driver will recommend a suitable time to get back to your hotel (or Naples train station) after this lovely day!

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.
