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!

Our party of 4 were with Giovanni for the Amalfi Coast tour this August. He was promptly at our hotel at 8AM, smiling and enthusiastic to show us this part of "his" Italy. As we departed he gave us some history and quizzed us about our knowledge of his country. He sang to us with his beautiful voice. Every stop he was attentive to what we wanted to see or experience. He liked to discuss politics to history with us. He was interested to know what our personal history was for each person. His van was clean and neat. He even had wet wipes. He seemed to know all the locals and other tour drivers when we stopped. This is the only way to experience the Amalfi coast

We took the Amalfi coastal tour on 17th June 2016.Gaetano picked us up from our B&B in Naples & welcomed us into a aircondtioned minivan.We had an absolutely fantastic day thanks to Gaetano, visiting Positano, Amalfi where we had a lovely lunch then lastly Ravello.All along the way he would stop to allow us amazing photo opportunities of breathtaking views & while im usually not a good passenger I felt very relaxed & safe with Gaetano driving along those narrow coastal roads!We both felt very relaxed the whole day & Gaetano was very friendly & great to talk to. We thought the Amalfi coast was the most beautiful coastline we have ever seen & will be coming back in the near future. When we do we will be using Lovely Amalfi tours again! A big Grazia to Gaetano for making our day one to remember!

from Napa, California

We had an amazing day with Enrique to Pompeii, Mt Vesvius, and Naples. He was early to pick us up, polite, personable and we loved him. He drove slow so I wouldn't get carsick, stopped for mazarella cheese, found our guide for Pompeii. He tailored our trip to whatever we wanted to do. We ended up going to Naples for their famous Margerita pizza. The only negative is that I wish we were staying longer so we could spend another day with him!

from Coral Springs
