Tour from your Hotel of Mt. Vesuvius - Winery (Optional) - Herculaneum

Departing from: Naples Area

Mt. Vesuvius - 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.

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 volcano 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. Then the driver will recommend a suitable time to get back to your hotel after this lovely day!

Gio was the best tour guide. He was charming, funny, informative and tailored our tour to our specific needs. He went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable at all times and showed us the true amalfi coast from someone who has lived in the area of all of his life. Breathtaking! It was also so much fun that he played Italian music in the car and sang! We are hoping to come back next summer and Gio will be at the top of our list!

Thank you Giovanni! My husband and I absolutely loved the beautiful Italian Riviera thanks to you and your wonderful tour! You are so knowledgeable and have the inside scoop on the best local activities to do and places to eat. You made our day nothing short of spectacular and we just can't thank you enough. If you are going to the Amalfi Coast you MUST book Giovanni!!!

My wife is a travel agent and we have traveled extensively. Two years ago we were on a Mediterranean Cruise and we stopped in Italy. My wife had booked us a guided tour of the Amalfi Coast with Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours For ourselves, our daughter and niece. We were picked up By our guide Giovanni (Gio) and spent the better part of the day with him. He is a great driver with a very safe, reliable vehicle and a great personality! He showed us the sites and very knowledgeable in this perfect locality. The girls all fell in love with him and to this day we still all converse with him on Facebook. He recommended an awesome place to enjoy a Great lunch , right on the sea. You couldn’t ask foe a better setting. This was by far one of the best things that I have ever done in my life and I highly recommend it, and Gio!

from Orlando Florida

BEST DECISION EVER! Absolutely breathtaking excursion! You will not regret hiring this company to guide you around Italy! Gorgeous views and excellent food along the way all thanks to the best tour guide we could have ever been blessed with! Vincenzo was fantastic! Tour guide is his title but he was definitely much more than that. He described many places and things we saw along the way, kept track of the time so that we were able to see everything we wanted to that day, willingly took photos of us at all of our stops, kept us entertained the entire day from beginning to end, and we truly felt like we were driving around Italy with a FRIEND! We were able to see all of the highlights on our list of must see places during our stop in Naples including Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast, Positano, & Pompeii. But we were also able to see and visit places we hadn’t known about before, like a local family owned Italian restaurant overlooking the famous Positano beach. Best food we had in all of Italy! All of this wouldn’t have happened without Vincenzo, his fun personality and great recommendations along the way! We are so lucky to have gotten him as our tour guide and we will absolutely look for Vincenzo the next time we are in Italy! Book him now for a fantastic tour worth every penny!

Amalfi Coast & Pompeii Day Trip. We will never forget this day thanks to Enrico and Lena. The scenery of the Amalfi Coast and the history of Pompeii is truly amazing. The high speed train from Rome to Naples is only an hour and Enrico greeted us at the station and within minutes we hit the road in his Mercedes. Our first stop was the pretty village of Serento, excellent shopping and cappuccino. Next stop Positano. Although very popular and therefore crowded it is so beautiful. Enrico suggested lunch at a restaurant high up the mountain called de Costantino. This is a must, we had the most spectacular view and the food and wine absolutely delicious, order the Family meal and house wine, all locally grown produce. With full bellies Enrico then drove us to Pompeii to meet our personal guide Lena. Pompeii in the afternoon is less crowded in the mornings and Lena expertly guided us through avoiding the mass group tours so it was a truly personal experience and her knowledge is fantastic. Pompeii cannot be missed, what a fascinating history and culture. Thanks Enrico and Lena for making this day very special.

from Sidney

Our driver/guide, Gio was perfect - very knowledgable, entertaining and efficient. Great itinerary including hiking up Vesuvius, a lovely lunch at Cantina del Vesuvio winery and Pompeii. Gio's local knowledge and personal service made it so much better than the standard cruise operators' tours.
