Sorrento - Winery (Optional) - Herculaneum

The tour will begin after you meet your private driver who will be easily recognizable due to the sign on which will be written your name and our agency logo at the port where your cruise ship will be docked. After a brief presentation your private driver will accompany you at the luxurious vehicle where and will offer you every comfort you need. Furthermore he will give you important information about the travel and the places that you are going to visit. 

Our first stop will be Sorrento. Arrived in the city of Sorrento, the private driver will leave you in the historical square called Piazza Tasso, but first of all he will show you the fastest way to go to inner part of the city where you can visit the old churches, museums, the beautiful buildings and the landscapes. You can visit the factory of famous Limoncello; an alcoholic drink made by lemons, sugar and water, a typical Italian product.

 In Sorrento, you'll enjoy your free time for a photo opportunity and a stroll down to the Sorrento Pier. Corso Italia is Sorrento's flower-lined main boulevard, here you'll find local shops, designer boutiques and cafés.

Later on, we are going to reach the amazing Mt.Vesuvius 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 winery 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 in order to reach your cruise ship on time. During the ride to the port, you can reminisce about your lovely day mixed with ancient Roman history and the present day beauty of one of the most famous coastlines in the world!

from Clermont

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.

from Des Moines

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!!!

from West Seneca, New York

An amazing tour with a fabulous guide! Giovani showed us Ravello, Amalfi and Positano. They made the initial inquiries; the booking and the actual tour so easy! They were delightful to work with. We hope we get to book another tour with them someday. Giovanni was amazing!!!

from Tinley Park

From start to finish our wonderful day touring the Amalfi coast with Giovanni as our guide and driver was fantastic. Arranging the tour was easy to do on the website and Melania emailed us promptly with answers to all of our questions. Despite the rainy weather, Giovanni's sunny disposition and gracious hospitality made the tour a very memorable and enjoyable day for us. I would highly recommend anyone visiting Italy to book a day with Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours and to ask for Giovanni!!

from Murray

The Amalfi Coast is a MUST SEE for anyone visiting Italy - and the tour through Lovely Amalfi Tours is a great way to see it! Be sure to request Giovanni as your driver, he has us laughing the whole tour. Another quick tip for this tour, be sure to ask to stop for lunch at the restaurant "Da Costantino" outside of Positano. The food and the view from this restaurant completely enhanced this tour. The Amalfi Coast tour was worth every penny!
