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miss the chance to taste amazing wines exported to all the world, such as Vernaccia grape, in the place were they are originally made.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!

We booked a private car tour from Positano to Sorrento - but we got so much more! Vincenzo picked us up right on time from our hotel in Positano - and he was delightful! Not only did he drive us to Sorrento, he told us great stories of the areas as we drove through them. He stopped at all the best look out points so we could get the best views/photos of the Amalfi coast. He took the time to ask us what we were interested in seeing and doing in Sorrento so that he could customize the tour to what we wanted. It was perfect!! He dropped us in the city center for 2 hours so that we could shop and sightsee... and even made great recommendations for restaurants - and where to get the best Limoncello. We had a lovely day in Sorrento and it was all thanks to Vincenzo!

By far the best full-day tour we had during our 2017 Mediterranean Cruise. Sal picked us up very punctually from the Port of Napoli and the fun began from there. The vehicle was very clean and comfortable. Sal was very informative and entertained our group throughout the day. Pickups at Amalfi, Positano, Ravello and Sorrento were all right on time and seamless. Highly recommended!!
We booked day tour with Enrico for 2 in May 2017 and he was the highlight of our 3 week Italy trip! He picked us up at our hotel and wanted to start the day off with coffee so he took us to his favorite coffee bar for cappuccino and Neapolitan pastries. They had the best sfogliatella! Then we continued on our way to the Amalfi Coast, stopping in Positano, Ravello, and Amalfi. He knew the best places to stop and take pictures and even bought us lemon sorbet twice! He pointed out important places in the history of Naples and would talk about each town before stopping to let us stroll through on our own for an hour or so. He also took us the to most amazing seaside lunch place that's only accessible by boat! It was a perfect way to end our vacation. I will definitely be back to take another day trip with Enrico! Grazie Mille Enrico for an unforgettable day in paradise! Oh, and he has the best pizza place recommendations! You must go visit his suggestions!

Amalfi was our fourth stop after Rome, Firenze and Cinque Terre and we had been on many tours in those cities; but I would say the Amalfi Coast private day tour by Lovely Amalfi Tours was by far the best one! Thanks to our excellent guide Giovanni! ☺️He was an absolute pleasure to travel with-we were one couple with a friend of ours and enjoyed ourselves to the fullest! Giovanni was helpful, vivacious, always ready to take pictures, fill us in on the beauty and history of the gorgeous Amalfi coast, great music selection and just the right spots to visit! I'd 100% recommend this tour with Giovanni to anyone who is planning to tour the Amalfi coast in one day anytime soon

We had a wonderful time with Enrico, Giovanni and Lina on our tours of Pompeii, Herculaneum and the Amalfi Coast and we highly recommend Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours! We not only learned a lot but we also consider our 3 guides as our friends and we hope they will contact us if they ever visit the US. Happy Holidays to everyone at Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours!

We visited the Amalfi Coast with our guide Enrico in early Oct. 2017. Enrico showed such a passion he has for the Amalfi Coast, He was fun, talkative, and Informative about the area of the world he lives. He knew the best spots for photos, and recommended the most beautiful spot for a lunch I have ever seen. Thanks to Enrico for providing us such an amazing start to our vacation. Will request him again when we return to that most beautiful part of the world.

It is hard to find enough adjectives to describe how much our group of six enjoyed the experience with Love Amalfi Tours. Giavani was our driver and we too feel like we made a new friend. We took two tours and it was hard to say goodby to him after our second tour. He is warm, funny, smart, and very informative and creative in the ways he takes you on the excursion you sign up for. We all have travelled a lot and taken many different tours and all six of us agreed that this was the best experience we have ever had. We continue to talk about how much fun we had and how incredibly beautiful the places we went with Giavani were. We also had Lina as our guide for Pompeii and Herculean and she was vey informative and adeptly helped us get through the crowds at Pompeii while giving us a full understanding of the history there. Don't even look elsewhere for another tour company. There is no question that the way this company is run that it is the very best. We would use them again for all of our tour and transportation needs. We hope to return and must thank Giaviani for making our trip to the Amalfi Coast so very special and so much fun!
