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!

We booked a private car tour from Positano to Sorrento - but we got so much more! Vincenzo picked us up right on time from our hotel in Positano - and he was delightful! Not only did he drive us to Sorrento, he told us great stories of the areas as we drove through them. He stopped at all the best look out points so we could get the best views/photos of the Amalfi coast. He took the time to ask us what we were interested in seeing and doing in Sorrento so that he could customize the tour to what we wanted. It was perfect!! He dropped us in the city center for 2 hours so that we could shop and sightsee... and even made great recommendations for restaurants - and where to get the best Limoncello. We had a lovely day in Sorrento and it was all thanks to Vincenzo!

from Cincinnati US

By far the best full-day tour we had during our 2017 Mediterranean Cruise. Sal picked us up very punctually from the Port of Napoli and the fun began from there. The vehicle was very clean and comfortable. Sal was very informative and entertained our group throughout the day. Pickups at Amalfi, Positano, Ravello and Sorrento were all right on time and seamless. Highly recommended!!

from Montreal

We booked day tour with Enrico for 2 in May 2017 and he was the highlight of our 3 week Italy trip! He picked us up at our hotel and wanted to start the day off with coffee so he took us to his favorite coffee bar for cappuccino and Neapolitan pastries. They had the best sfogliatella! Then we continued on our way to the Amalfi Coast, stopping in Positano, Ravello, and Amalfi. He knew the best places to stop and take pictures and even bought us lemon sorbet twice! He pointed out important places in the history of Naples and would talk about each town before stopping to let us stroll through on our own for an hour or so. He also took us the to most amazing seaside lunch place that's only accessible by boat! It was a perfect way to end our vacation. I will definitely be back to take another day trip with Enrico! Grazie Mille Enrico for an unforgettable day in paradise! Oh, and he has the best pizza place recommendations! You must go visit his suggestions!

from New York

Amalfi was our fourth stop after Rome, Firenze and Cinque Terre and we had been on many tours in those cities; but I would say the Amalfi Coast private day tour by Lovely Amalfi Tours was by far the best one! Thanks to our excellent guide Giovanni! ☺️He was an absolute pleasure to travel with-we were one couple with a friend of ours and enjoyed ourselves to the fullest! Giovanni was helpful, vivacious, always ready to take pictures, fill us in on the beauty and history of the gorgeous Amalfi coast, great music selection and just the right spots to visit! I'd 100% recommend this tour with Giovanni to anyone who is planning to tour the Amalfi coast in one day anytime soon

from DENTON

We had a wonderful time with Enrico, Giovanni and Lina on our tours of Pompeii, Herculaneum and the Amalfi Coast and we highly recommend Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours! We not only learned a lot but we also consider our 3 guides as our friends and we hope they will contact us if they ever visit the US. Happy Holidays to everyone at Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours!

from CYPRESS

We visited the Amalfi Coast with our guide Enrico in early Oct. 2017. Enrico showed such a passion he has for the Amalfi Coast, He was fun, talkative, and Informative about the area of the world he lives. He knew the best spots for photos, and recommended the most beautiful spot for a lunch I have ever seen. Thanks to Enrico for providing us such an amazing start to our vacation. Will request him again when we return to that most beautiful part of the world.

from Westlake Village

It is hard to find enough adjectives to describe how much our group of six enjoyed the experience with Love Amalfi Tours. Giavani was our driver and we too feel like we made a new friend. We took two tours and it was hard to say goodby to him after our second tour. He is warm, funny, smart, and very informative and creative in the ways he takes you on the excursion you sign up for. We all have travelled a lot and taken many different tours and all six of us agreed that this was the best experience we have ever had. We continue to talk about how much fun we had and how incredibly beautiful the places we went with Giavani were. We also had Lina as our guide for Pompeii and Herculean and she was vey informative and adeptly helped us get through the crowds at Pompeii while giving us a full understanding of the history there. Don't even look elsewhere for another tour company. There is no question that the way this company is run that it is the very best. We would use them again for all of our tour and transportation needs. We hope to return and must thank Giaviani for making our trip to the Amalfi Coast so very special and so much fun!
