Ville di Stabia - Pompeii - Oplonti

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.

Before leaving your private driver please agree upon the time to leave in order to reach your cruise ship on time. During the ride to the port, you can reminisce about your lovely day!

An absolutely wonderful and fun tour!! Was one of our biggest highlights of our trip to Italy. Giovanni Was an awesome and fun guide! He new all the best spots, including where to have a fantastic lunch and great Naples pizza upon return to the train. He let us take our time where needed and showed us the best places to explore. Would highly recommend this tour and can't wait to go back and see more with them!

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!

from Sydney

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.

from Brisbane, Australia

We had the wonderful opportunity to explore the stunning Amalfi Coast with tour guide Giovanni (or as he introduced himself – John) on 14 September 2015. Right from the outset when he met us as Napoli train station, I got a sense that it was going to be a fun day as John exuded personality plus and had the ability to make you feel comfortable in his presence, even though we had only just met him. John is passionate about his work and his aim is to ensure his customers have a memorable experience. His commentary reflects his broad knowledge of the area and his singing abilities aren’t too shabby either. We were locked into a tight travel schedule, with only a day to spare and the staff at Lovely Amalfi Tours were very obliging in accommodating our needs. I would highly recommend Lovely Amalfi Tours to anyone who is looking for a tour company that provides an exceptional service. Thank you Giovanni, it was a magic day --- we will be back one day.

I had read a lot about which company to go with prior to our cruise through the Mediterranean. I'm very pleased that we went with Lovely Amalfi Tours. Enrico was the lucky one to guide us around and my wife and I had such a great day around Sorrento, Positano and Ravello (the highlight if the day was lunch at Graal Restaurant ). Unbelievable food and the view....wow! Enrico was incredibly knowledgable, funny and friendly...and he can sing....oh sol a mio with gusto!.. thankyou for a memorable day we will cherish.

from Perth, Australia

Had an amazing tour with our driver and guide Vincenzo. Vincenzo was prompt, extremely informative and polite which made our day one not to forget. He took us to the best view points for photos, allowed the right amount of time in Positano, Amalfi and Ravello for us to enjoy. He selected a delicious restaurant in Amalfi on the waterfront for us and the price was perfect. We really enjoyed all our conversations with Vinni and certainly a day we won't forget.
