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miss the chance to taste amazing wines exported to all the world, such as Vernaccia grape, in the place were they are originally made.

Our party of 4 were with Giovanni for the Amalfi Coast tour this August. He was promptly at our hotel at 8AM, smiling and enthusiastic to show us this part of "his" Italy. As we departed he gave us some history and quizzed us about our knowledge of his country. He sang to us with his beautiful voice. Every stop he was attentive to what we wanted to see or experience. He liked to discuss politics to history with us. He was interested to know what our personal history was for each person. His van was clean and neat. He even had wet wipes. He seemed to know all the locals and other tour drivers when we stopped. This is the only way to experience the Amalfi coast

We took the Amalfi coastal tour on 17th June 2016.Gaetano picked us up from our B&B in Naples & welcomed us into a aircondtioned minivan.We had an absolutely fantastic day thanks to Gaetano, visiting Positano, Amalfi where we had a lovely lunch then lastly Ravello.All along the way he would stop to allow us amazing photo opportunities of breathtaking views & while im usually not a good passenger I felt very relaxed & safe with Gaetano driving along those narrow coastal roads!We both felt very relaxed the whole day & Gaetano was very friendly & great to talk to. We thought the Amalfi coast was the most beautiful coastline we have ever seen & will be coming back in the near future. When we do we will be using Lovely Amalfi tours again! A big Grazia to Gaetano for making our day one to remember!

We had an amazing day with Enrique to Pompeii, Mt Vesvius, and Naples. He was early to pick us up, polite, personable and we loved him. He drove slow so I wouldn't get carsick, stopped for mazarella cheese, found our guide for Pompeii. He tailored our trip to whatever we wanted to do. We ended up going to Naples for their famous Margerita pizza. The only negative is that I wish we were staying longer so we could spend another day with him!

The best way to experience the magical Amalfi Coast. Gio is such a sweet and knowledgeable guide and driver. My husband and I were truly spoiled by this private tour. We only wish we could have had more time to take it all in. Thank you for such a wonderful time. We'll be back!

A great day out with Giovani, a lovely young man, full of mischief and entertainment. We really enjoyed his Amalfi coast tour and his company as well.
