Ville di Stabia - Pompeii - Oplonti (All Day Guide Included)
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.
On the way to Pompeii, we will drive by Mt. Vesuvius, the volcano responsible for one of the most famous historical events in Italy. The old city of Pompeii is located at the base of the Vesuvius and was flourish during the Period of the Roman Empire. After the eruptions of the Volcano in 79 B.C the city has been destroyed and covered by ashes and lapillus. The Archeological dig started in 1748 and in three centuries only 3/5 part of the city has been discovered. Now the city has declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO and 3.750.000 tourists each year come to visit it.
Our next two stops are small cities where there are archaeological sites as important as the previous one, even if they are less known.
The first one are the “Ville di Stabia”, located in Castellamare di Stabia, the town was once known as Stabia only. It was destroyed by the apocalyptic eruption of the Vesuvio of the 79, which hit Pompeii and herculaneum as well, and on the beach of Stabia the poet Plinio the old found the death due to his whish to look closer to the eruption. The town of Stabia was once known as a place where the “Patrizi” (The Rich romans) used to spend their holidays and where they had built numerous “Villas”. The archeological digging started on 1739, after the casual findings of several items. They are not as famous as the Pompeii or herculaneum ones but not for this reason they are less fascinating. The archaeologists have found not only the villas and other buildings, but even several paintings especially in the “Aquarium Stabium”. Enjoy the beauties of the Villas such as Villa Arianna, Villa San Marco or the “Nuove Terme Stabiane”.
The second archeological site that you are going to visit is Oplonti in the city of Torre Annunziata near Naples. Even this city was hit by the famous eruptions. Inside you can find ancient buildings as Villa di Poppea, named after the second wife of the Roman empereor Nerone, infamously known for being the emperor who spent his time singing while his empire was burning due to a huge fire. The villa is so called because of some items such a vase and some documents that allegedly belonged to the empress.

Booked an Amalfi Coast Drive Tour. Not only was our tour breath taking based on the scenery, delicious hilltop lunch at Ristorante Da Constantino in Positano, informative Pompeii tour with Lena but our tour guide, Giovanni, was the best tour guide we’ve ever had. He is prompt, courteous, polite, friendly, delightful and informative. Be sure to ask him to sing! Thanks Giovanni. It was a great way to spend the day. We will come back again and be sure to see you.

Our Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Tour with Gio was AWESOME! Gio showed us some of the most beautiful parts of Italy, while carefully explaining the ins and outs of Italian culture and historical facts. He's the best tour guide we've ever had for any tour-like experience. He knew the best places to stop along the way for pictures and was entertaining the entire tour. He even sang us some Italian classics on our way back. This tour is a must when in Italy.

Lovely Amalfi Tours is so easy to work with. They more than accommodated our trip as we were coming during the off season. But they made it work for us.
Giovanni was our friendly, funny and informative guide for 2 whole days and he was EVERYTHING. He made our trip so much more enjoyable.
As a Travel Agency Owner, I take pride in any recommendation I offer. The highest compliment that I can offer, is BOOK with them and do it now, but don't forget to get Giovanni if you can!

Can't say enough about Gio and how he just made our trip complete. From singing Italian to us, well to my wife to just making us feel like he was family. When you plan your almafi trip you must get Gio to take you around. Truly amazing.

I have been to Europe a few times and can honestly say that Amalfi Coast Tours offer the best service by far. Thanks to Gio and the team our stay on Amalfi Coast was the most memorable part our Italia trip. The knowledge and history shared was first class, we had lots of laughs on our travels and I was even serenaded in Italiano which brought me to tears. We were picked up from Naples train station, visited Mt Vesuvius, toured the coast line and dropped off to Positano in paradise for a 3 night stay. When we were ready, we were picked up again and had an amazing drive to the Tivoli Gardens and then our final destination in Rome. I highly recommend having the team drive you to wherever you need to go, believe me, it will be fun and full of adventure. My family and I will definitely be back on the Amalfi Coast and can’t wait to see Gio and the team again.
I have nothing but amazing things to say about lovely amalfi coast tours, from the booking which was easy and they answer all my questions to the whole process it was our first time in Naples and amalfi coast and it was BEAUTIFUL I always remember that trip as one of the best soul searching days for me, not only Giovanni´s way to explain but also the cultural heritage from this places was priceless. I can`t wait to go back actually my sister got back and took the pompeii trip one haha so I am missing my second chance ;)

This is now my third tour with Gio Lovely tours this summer. My partner and I had another amazing day with Gio seeing more sights of the Amalfi coast. I had experienced Gio's wonderful hospitality and service first in 2015 when I travelled with my Mum who was visiting me in the UK from Australia. Then in 2018 with my sister who was also visiting from Australia, this time we stayed in Positano for a week.
We have had Gio all three times and he offers the best service that one can experience. Welcoming, friendly, warm, engaging and you can see the passion and how proud he is of the area he lives in and you cannot help but immerse yourself into his world. He is punctual, he is also has a great sense of humour and a beautiful Italian singing voice :-) he is very open to the world we live in and loves people from all walks of life. If you are looking to go to Italy and seeing this beautiful coast line please look Gio lovely tours up, you will never be disappointed. Also to note I have a had another tour with another person from Gio Lovely tours and he was amazing too. Please know two of our tours were pick and return to Naples and one other tour and driving was pick up Naples, drop off Positano and return to Rome by car stopping off at Tivoli Gardens. This was on top of the day tours we had to Sorrento, Positano and Pompeii. Please look no further. Thank you to Gio and the team. My family and I wish you all the very best during this difficult time and hope the tourism industry returns to what it was very soon and you can get back doing what you do best....Clint & Lee x
