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 Hotel / 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. Finally, let's get started your dream Private Tour !

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 /accommodation (or Naples train station) after this lovely day!

If you want to see the true Amalfi coast there is no one better to help you explore its jaw dropping beauty than Giovanni, our wonderful, authentic Italian guide. Travelling with my best friend, he tailored the day to meet everything on our wish list. From gorgeous photo opportunities along the Coastline to sharing a delicious meal under the vines in a very lovely, family run winery on Vesuvius; we spent the whole day enjoying hls great knowledge of the area and wonderful hospitality. He also treated us to the best lemon Granita in the whole of Italy. Felt like we had spent the day with a friiend; laughing for much of it. A truly memorable day we will cherish forever. We will happily recommend him and the Lovely Amalfi Tours to all our mates down under! P.S If you ask him; he will even treat you to a song or 2.

We had a wonderful day with Giovanni. He took us to Positano, Sorrento and Herculenium. We were a group of 4 and the van was very comfortable. Giovanni is very knowledgeable and he went beyond what was necessary to make us happy. We will recommend him for anyone who wants to visit the area. Pascualle, Francesco, Simona LaMamona and Liza

Cruise Ship Excursion - July 2015 Enrico really made this trip very special. He was extremely accommodating to the diverse group of people we had from our Cruise Ship. One family wanted to see Sorrento, another Positano, and another Pompeii. He graciously accommodated us all. It was a fantastic trip, with lots of laughs and smiles. A very special day with a superb guide!

My husband booked a tour of Positano, Sorrento, & Pompeii with Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours after finding them on Trip Advisor. This was our first tour on a week long cruise, so we weren't sure what to expect. Our drivers were Giovanni and Gaetano, who were friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and made our day truly special. It was a national holiday the day we went and Giovanni and Gaetano arranged the day so we never got stuck in traffic. It seemed that every location we went to was not crowded when we arrived, but was very crowded when we were leaving. This made our day and experience, all more enjoyable. One example, they arranged for us to have lunch at a nice location in Sorrento. Our table was all set when we arrived and we were treated like royalty. They stopped along the way to allow us to take photos of scenic routes and recommended a great place to buy limoncello. I would highly recommend this company as this was the best part of our trip. It made us want to return to the Amalfi Coast one day.

Had a fabulous day with Giovanni as our driver/guide. Promptly picked us up at Naples train station and provided an informative day with us..never a dull moment and he new all the great spots to see.in the Amalfi area including Pompei. Took us to a fabulous place in Sorrento for lunch and was very accommodating in every way. There were 6 of us and the van was very comfortable for everyone. Once our full day was done he had us back to the Naples train station and made sure everything was all ok for our return trip to Rome. "Gio" is quite the character and would highly recommend him and this fine company for their tour. It is one of a kind and a great value. This was our 1st tour when we arrived in Italy and what a great way to start out our vacation!!!
