Tuscany Countryside : Siena, San Gimignano & Wine
Your private driver will greet you at your accommodation, 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 step will be the small but charming city of Siena. This town is famous for its architecture, the palaces made by bricks, the streets which still preserve the medieval origin structures and the plazas like “Piazza del Campo” with a unique folding fan-shape. Here you can visit the famous Siena’s “Duomo”, it is divided in a huge cross-shaped Cathedral built in honor to Santa Maria Assunta, a dome and a bell tower. Inside you can find hundreds of Italian pieces of art which belong to Christian art. Plus you can visit the “Libreria Piccolomini”, located on the left side of the Duomo church, with its frescos it is an important part of Italian culture.
Our next stop will be the small city of San Gimignano. To get to this tiny borough we have to drive up to the top of the hill. Surrounded by the medieval walls, this city is well known for the skyline. It’s not the modern skyline of New york with its skyscrapers, but it is made of tall towers, still preserved from the dark centuries. The city is known for its frescos, churches, architecture and plazas such as “Piazza della Cisterna”. A small city but it will be an amazing experience to live.
But Tuscany region is very famous for its wine tradition too, and with us you will live that side of this culture as well. We will drive you to the Tuscan countryside where you will visit the wineries, have the chance to see how wines are made and taste them. Don’t miss the chance to taste amazing wines exported to all the world, such as Vernaccia grape, in the place were they are originally made.
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.

“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!
Sharon RIchfrom 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!

“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.

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.
