Your private driver will greet you at your accommodation, after a brief presentation you will be accompanied to the luxurious minivan 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 step is Pisa, an important city of the Tuscany region. Once a Roman Empire’s colony, then an important commercial port, the city of Pisa is better known for hosting one of the symbol of Italy abroad: “La torre pendente di Pisa” (The leaning tower of Pisa), originally the bell tower of the Cathedral is now more famous than the original building thanks to its leaning-on-a-side characteristic. It is located in the so-called “Campo dei miracoli”, a wide plaza where you can find other sites too, such as the Cathedral, the cemetery and the baptistery. A magical place that definitely does worth a visit. Don’t miss the chance to take a traditional picture of you holding the tower, or get creative, don’t forget to show us your pictures.
We will then visit another Tuscanian important city: Lucca. This town used to be a stronghold, its high walls are still there standing up and surrounding the city. Don’t forget to visit other important places like “Torre Guinigi”, a high tower which at the top has a small garden “Il giardino pensile”, or the “Piazza dell’Anfiteatro” a plaza built using the original design of a roman amphitheatre. The walls, the peebled streets, the churches, the architecture of the palaces which reminds of ancient times, walking along the streets of this town will be like living the lives of fantasy book characters.
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 memorable day!

We just returned from our incredible trip in Italy and France. There were so many highlights to talk about but I wanted to say how incredibly pleased we were with Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours and most importantly with Giovanni, our driver. He has the most incredibly warm personality, speaks wonderful english (although I spoke italian with him) and has such in depth knowledge of the places we visited. He drove us to Pompeii first where we spent three hours, then off to Positano where he booked us in at a restaurant at the top of the cliff that had the most incredible view!! Our group spent a little too much time at the restaurant drinking wonderful wines and eating a most delicious meal, my favorite of the whole trip...once we were done we went to Beautiful Sorrento where we had a 90 minute opportunity to shop and eat gelato and simple do what we wanted.
He was articulate and funny the entire time. His driving skills were amazing albeit we had a few moments going up the mountains where I didnt think we were going to make it (narrow winding roads) but he handeled them so well.
We hope that if you use this company you may have the pleasure of having Giovanni as your driver/guide. It will be an incredible experience.
I was on a shared tour by the way and met my fellow cruisers on Cruise Critic.com
I recommend this site to get info on cruising and more importanly to meet others and share tours such as this one. We were 7 people and got along famously!
Grazie Giovanni..ti auguro un bella vita!!!

We booked a private tour of the Amalfi Coast from our cruise ship - Naples Port. Our driver, Giovanni, was great -- informative, great personality, and experienced driver, punctual, and spoke English very well. He was very knowledgeable and provided recommedations when asked. He provided a schedule for each stop which gave us plenty of time to enjoy the sites we wanted to take in this trip. Since this was not our first time to Naples, we requested to go to Ravello, Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento. The scenery was spectacular

We arrived at the port of Salerno on Serenade of the Seas and was picked up by Giovanni. What an amazing tour guide! Very knowledgeable, friendly and polite throughout the entire tour. He stopped for photos and gave us enough time to spent in Positano and Sorrento and even recommended a good restaurant in Sorrento. From our booking via internet until our drop off at the port again was just so professional! Can recommend them 110%!!

This was the best tour of our 12 day mediterranean cruise. Our driver was soooo knowledgable and got us to both Herculeum (better than Pompei) and Pompei before the crowds did. He then took us to this AMAZING lunch on Mt. Vesuvius (cantina) and we had the best authentic meal of the trip. We got to get a private winery tour and taste amazing wine. Next we hiked up Mt. Vesuvius... it was so much fun! I would recommend this to anyone my husband and I had a blast!

“A day with Lovely Amalfi Tours in Pompeii, Sorrento and Positano”
On our Eastern Mediterranean cruise, we had a day in Naples and decided to take in part of the Amalfi Coast and see Pompeii again. With advice of the company and the skillful driving by Giovanni, we were able to do both and return to the ship on time, despite the traffic delays. Because of our smaller vehicle, we climbed to heights in Positano that buses couldn't reach and had our favourite lunch of the trip at Trattoria La Tagliata--magnificent views, delicious home-style Italian food and very friendly staff! We hired a guide to meet us in Pompeii (arranged by Lovely Amalfi Tours). Our excellent driver Giovanni was very considerate and friendly. We enjoyed our day with him in Naples area and would recommend the tour service to anyone.

“A wonderful day”
On disembarking our cruise ship it was easy to find our driver/guide Giovanni. We had an excellent tour along the Amalfi Coast stopping at Sorrento, Positano and Herculaneum and various view points along the way. Giovanni was an brilliant guide, knowledgeable and entertaining. When we stopped for time on our own he explained the layout of the place and the places not to miss so that we were able to make full use of our time. An outstanding tour
