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 spent a week at a Villa in Positano and booked two tours through Lovely Amalfi Tou poprs. Our driver was Giovanni. He was professional, pleasant, funny and knowledgeable. On our tour of Pompeii and Herculaneum we also booked a guide for each sight. Lina was our guide and clearly knew the history. We would not have known what we were looking at had we not had Lina guiding us. What is amazing about Lovely Amalfi Tours is that all the drivers and guides are employees. They do not use third party companies to manage their tours. I couldn't have been happier with this choice. I would use them again and would not hesitate recommending them to family and friends.

Our trip to Amalfi coast was made heavenly because of Lovely Amalfi Tours and Giovanni. The service provided was excellent and efficient. Customer service of Melania was fabulous. Gio made sure we saw every inch of Amalfi and his lunch suggestions were fabulous. My most favourite memory is Gio singing to beautiful classics driving along the beautiful coastline of Positano. Best experience ever!

Enrico was our wonderful guide who went out of his way to assure we enjoyed our day! He is very knowledgeable and took us to a wonderful restaurant in Positano! Enrico is an exceptional guide with a pretty good singing voice too!

from Titusville

Our day visiting the towns along the Amalfi Coast with Gio was an experience never to be forgotten. Every place was beautiful and seeing them with Gio and listening to him singing happily as he drove us safely along the winding roads was a fabulous day. We feel like we have a new friend in Italy! Wish we could do it all over again tomorrow!

My wife and I selected Giovanni for a day trip around Naples, visiting Pompeii and Vesuvius. What a great day. Giovanni put together a really nice itinerary including lunch and wine tasting - but he was also really great fun to be with. We would strongly recommend him for your future tours.

Brenda, Lori and Pearl were picked up at Naples port by Gaetano on Sept. 10/16. We had a most memorable day on the Amalfi Coast thanks to our driver Gaetano. We went to Sorrento, Positano and Pompeii. We stopped along the way for pictures and enjoyed the views. Gaetano had arranged for lunch with a wonderful view of Positano below. He played Andrea Bocelli on the way back to port. It was a great day and would definitely book The Lovely Amalfi Coast Tour again.
