After that they will give you important information about the day tour and the places that you are going to visit. Finally, let's get started your dream Private Tour !

The tour will start visiting the “Colosseum”, probably the most symbolic Italian site, where gladiators fought against each others or against beasts during Roman Era. People from all around the world come to visit it. Outside it stand up witnessing the strength of an ancient empire, inside you will find the scars of hundreds of battles, most of them just for the amusement of the rich people.  

Later on, you will be visiting the famous “Spanish steps”, this huge stairs that starts from Piazza di Spagna up to Piazza Trinità dei Monti, both of them amazing Roman squares, especially the first one where you will find the famous “Barcaccia Fountain” by the Bernini artists;

The incredible “Fontana di Trevi” one of the best known Italian artwork, here you can take a picture and admire this legendary fountain where directors, painters, poets, artists have found inspiration. Do not forget to toss a coin and make a wish;

Absolutely we cannot miss the “Pantheon”, once a temple to all the Roman gods now a christian church. A circular structure which is one of the most mysterious palace in Rome.

During your tour, your private driver will show you other attractions such as Castle St. Angelo and its bridge, the Italian Senate, The Marble Foot and Cat Street (Roman Curiosity), Trajan's Column, Imperial Fora, Trajan's Market, The Maps of the Empire, Arch of Constantine, Marcus Aurelius's Column, Parliament and Council of Ministers, St. Peter in Chains, temples of Apollo, Vesta and Janus, Quirinal Palace.

For lunch you can entrust our staff to advise you restaurants where you can eat a very Italian meal enjoying Roman atmosphere, or grab a quick bite of a not less fast lunch.

After lunch it will be time for another important place here in Rome is the “Vatican”, an independent state ruled by the Pope and the Christian Church. Here you can find not only the Apostolic Palace, residence of His Santity, but other important churches, Christian places, and the Vatican Museums. Amazing museums including the Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Basilica ,where you can admire the Michelangelo playworks such as the frescos and the very famous Sistine Chapel ceiling, and thousands of other Christians treasures.

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 accommodation after this lovely day!

PLEASE NOTE: Security procedures at the Colosseum have recently changed. We have just been advised that the Colosseum has changed their security policy and has now implemented a metal detector which all guests must pass through. This will effect entrance to the Colosseum as even with skip the line entrance tickets, all guests entering must pass through the metal detector. The length of this line will be dependent upon tourist volume each day, however, we do want to advise that at this time, in low tourist season, with the implementation of the metal detector, the wait to enter is considerable and will affect the timing available to see other sites in Rome. 

On the first sunday of the month, the visit to the Colosseum is free of charge (we can't purchase “Fast track entrance” tickets) , we advise you not to visit it on this day in order to avoid waste of time in the queue (approx 2 hrs queue).

On the last sunday of the month, the visit to the Vatican Museum is free of charge (we can't purchase “Fast track entrance” tickets) , we advise you not to visit it on this day in order to avoid waste of time in the queue (approx 2 hrs queue).

The proposed itinerary is an example of a possible tour. We reserve the right to change the order in which we visit the sites.

We are able to make a reservation for skip the line tickets to the Vatican Museum/Sistine Chapel upon request when a 3 hrs private guided tour of the Vatican is also booked. However, as our cancellation policy is 7 days prior to the scheduled tour and tickets are non-refundable, we do not make the reservations until 6 days prior to your scheduled tour dates. We cannot guarantee ticket availability due to occasional events that are out of our control including, but not limited to, internal assemblies or strikes at sites.

Traveling internationally can feel overwhelming. With a special destination like Italy, you hope everything goes perfectly. Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours helped make our travels to Italy wonderful experiences. (We booked with them in 2019 and 2022 and hope to again soon!). Transfers are on time, professional, safe and reliable. Tours are fun and interesting and the destinations are beautiful. Professional, knowledgeable drivers like Marco and Carlo allow you to relax and enjoy while they take care of the rest! After a 9 hour flight, we appreciated a reliable, comfortable transfer from the airport to our hotel in Florence. Lovely Amalfi Coast happily accommodated our request to stop in Montepulciano for lunch and wine. Two days later we took private Tuscany Coutryside tour with Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours. Beautiful scenery with a friendly, knowledgeable driver with stops in Siena, San Gimignano and lunch and wine tasting. An experience that should not be missed! Thank you Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours team! We hope to visit again soon.

from WEST PALM BEACH

We had an amazing day with Stefano. It was our first time in Italy and we learned soo much from him. Ive always believe it is such a different experience when you have a private driver rather than being on a bus with 50 other people. We shopped and drank wine and had an amazing lunch at one of the Watch Towers along the Amalfi Coast. TRULY AN UNFORGETTABLE DAY!. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SERVICE!!!!

from Sydney

What can we say Vincenzo was the perfect host for the day, very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and his passion for the Amalfi coast is so heart warming and infectious. Taking us to Positano, Amalfi and Ravello, he was an amazing g guide for the whole trip. Recommending and taking us to Lunch, by boat, to “da Teresa” was definitely a highlight of the day. Would totally recommend Lovely Amalfi tours, and Vincenzo as your guide. Just a fantastic day, check it out @ziosime72 . Mille Grazie Vediamo fra pocco

from Taunton UK

What a fab day with Giovanni touring the Amalfi Coast. He was knowledgeable, funny, prompt and accommodating. We learnt about the history of his country and traditions of family life. Giovanni’s vocals accompanying Andrea Bocelli in the car was a bonus. Giovanni made the day for us and I can’t rate the tour highly enough. You won’t find a better guide to show you the highlights of this beautiful region. We plan to stay in touch.

from Vancouver, BC, Canada

The best private tour experience ever! I booked the Naples-Pompeii-Lunch in Positano-Amalfi Coast experience so that it’s easier to get from Naples to Amalfi with my two friends. Melania (admin) was very prompt in answering my questions and made it super easy to book the tour. Our tour guide, Giovanni, was really courteous, friendly, informative and passionate about history! We learned so much about Italian culture and even made friends outside of the tour, through Giovanni! Couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide and entertaining car ride! HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

from London

We went on a tour with Gio 6 years ago and have returned with our children to do some more of his tours! So informative and an amazing personality, takes the time to get to know his guests, could not recommend this more. We have been on the Private Amalfi Coast Tour, visiting Positano & Ravello today and had a great time. We are looking forward to our trip to Pompeii and Vesuvius next week. Hopefully the serenading continues!
