Mt. Vesuvius - Winery (Optional) - 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. 

Our first stop will be the Mt. Vesuvius. Our staff will drive up to 1 Km, to the Vesuvius Park, in order to preserve the unique environment of this area and to respect the nature, here cars are not allowed to enter. You will see by yourselves how these woods are able to transmit magic vibes, filled with a unique kind of flora and fauna. From the entrance of the Park, you can climb until the top of the active volcano. Enjoy the view of Naples city and its gulf, and take a deep breath leaving all your problems behind, but beware of the crater of this active volcano which is right next to you.

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 wine factories 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!

The best way to experience the magical Amalfi Coast. Gio is such a sweet and knowledgeable guide and driver. My husband and I were truly spoiled by this private tour. We only wish we could have had more time to take it all in. Thank you for such a wonderful time. We'll be back!

A great day out with Giovani, a lovely young man, full of mischief and entertainment. We really enjoyed his Amalfi coast tour and his company as well.

from Largo, FL

Giovanni took us on tours for 3 days!! He is the best, very knowledgeable with a great singing voice!!!! Looking forward to his trip to Florida to take him on some tours!. Thank you Giovanni for helping to make our vacation special!!!

We had the wonderful opportunity to explore the stunning Amalfi Coast with tour guide Giovanni (or as he introduced himself – John) on 14 September 2015. Right from the outset when he met us as Napoli train station, I got a sense that it was going to be a fun day as John exuded personality plus and had the ability to make you feel comfortable in his presence, even though we had only just met him. John is passionate about his work and his aim is to ensure his customers have a memorable experience. His commentary reflects his broad knowledge of the area and his singing abilities aren’t too shabby either. We were locked into a tight travel schedule, with only a day to spare and the staff at Lovely Amalfi Tours were very obliging in accommodating our needs. I would highly recommend Lovely Amalfi Tours to anyone who is looking for a tour company that provides an exceptional service. Thank you Giovanni, it was a magic day --- we will be back one day.

I had read a lot about which company to go with prior to our cruise through the Mediterranean. I'm very pleased that we went with Lovely Amalfi Tours. Enrico was the lucky one to guide us around and my wife and I had such a great day around Sorrento, Positano and Ravello (the highlight if the day was lunch at Graal Restaurant ). Unbelievable food and the view....wow! Enrico was incredibly knowledgable, funny and friendly...and he can sing....oh sol a mio with gusto!.. thankyou for a memorable day we will cherish.

from Perth, Australia

Had an amazing tour with our driver and guide Vincenzo. Vincenzo was prompt, extremely informative and polite which made our day one not to forget. He took us to the best view points for photos, allowed the right amount of time in Positano, Amalfi and Ravello for us to enjoy. He selected a delicious restaurant in Amalfi on the waterfront for us and the price was perfect. We really enjoyed all our conversations with Vinni and certainly a day we won't forget.

If you want to see the true Amalfi coast there is no one better to help you explore its jaw dropping beauty than Giovanni, our wonderful, authentic Italian guide. Travelling with my best friend, he tailored the day to meet everything on our wish list. From gorgeous photo opportunities along the Coastline to sharing a delicious meal under the vines in a very lovely, family run winery on Vesuvius; we spent the whole day enjoying hls great knowledge of the area and wonderful hospitality. He also treated us to the best lemon Granita in the whole of Italy. Felt like we had spent the day with a friiend; laughing for much of it. A truly memorable day we will cherish forever. We will happily recommend him and the Lovely Amalfi Tours to all our mates down under! P.S If you ask him; he will even treat you to a song or 2.
