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!

I am NOT one to typically write reviews but this was an experience of a lifetime for my husband and I. As I write this please know that I had the most amazing time with the Amalfi tours and Giovanni. He was so accommodating and showed us parts of Italy that we will never never forget. He was very respectful and knowledgeable. He made the tour fantastic and I would recommend this tour to anyone that is touring the Amalfi Coast. Make sure you ask for Giovanni.

Thank you Giovanni for making our day in Naples so memorable and enjoyable. We appreciated your flexibility in planning our day. We felt like you were a good friend showing us around and your pride and love for your country was infectious. The vehicle was pristine and comfortable for the six of us. We'd love to go back and the first person we would call is you!! We highly recommend your tour company and people may contact us if they have questions.

from San Francisco

“An amazing Day in Pompeii, Sorrento and Positano!!” We were part of a group of 8 on a 7 night cruise, and this was probably my favorite port day! Giovanni was our driver and he helped make this day fun and memorable. He got us to Pompeii early so we beat the crowds and could really enjoy our visit. He is a highly skilled driver (not easy on the Amalfi coast Road) and took us to some beautiful lookout places for stunning views/photos of the Amalfi coast and Positano! He arranged a really nice lunch for us in Sorrento, recommended the perfect street for us to pick up last-minute gifts, and he made sure we were on time for the ship. I would definitely recommend Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours and Giovanni, and hope I get the chance to use this service again someday!

from San Antonio US

In August 2013 we did Tour Pompeii, Positano and Sorrento with Lovely Amalfi coast tours. Our driver Giovanni was very nice and he suggested a wonderful restaurant outside Positano for us to have lunch and that was the best meal we had on our 2 week trip. We had several stops for photos and it was a wonderful day! Thanks Giovanni!

from Miami

“Great trip with Giovanni” We had a great time in the Amalfi Coast thanks to our wonderful driver, Giovanni. Giovanni is unlike any stereotypical driver that one would encounter in most cities. He is young, fun, engaging university student who seems to know just about everyone in the Amalfi Coast! The entire private tour went very smoothly. We found Giovanni immediately upon arriving in the Sorrento port as he was waiting for us (along with other drivers). Despite that there were only two of us, we got a large van, which is better for sightseeing because you get to sit higher up and consequently have a better view of the coast. We were able to see all the towns and did not feel rushed at all. Another great thing about traveling with Lovely Amalfi Tours is that the prices are significantly more reasonable than its competitors, with no compromise in the quality of service. I hope it continues to stay that way! But most importantly, Giovanni made us feel like he was a friend showing us around his hometown. And of course, this is always the best way to explore a new place.

from Vancouver

Pompeii and Herculaneum Private Tour This was our first time doing an independent outside of our cruise line. What a BLAST! Eight of us went off to Pompeii and Herculaneum with Giovanni (our driver).8 hour tour. This was the highlight of our 19 day Western Mediterranean Cruise. ( Age group) in our 60's. We like ruins and history and the private guide gave us a great descriptive picture of how life was like at the time of Mt Vesuvius' eruption. We all agreed that we enjoyed Herculaneum more because it was more emotional and intimate. We all immediately hit it off with Giovanni, and had lots of laughs. We would highly recommend this company, guide and definitely the driver! We would not hesitate about using their services again. Thanks Giovanni for making our tour so memorable. The Crazy Canadians! We won't forget you.
