LUXURY PRIVATE TRANSFERS

The driving time travelling from Rome, driving time can be anything from 3 hours or more depending on traffic and road works. We strongly suggest that you accept our private limousine service. Driving in Italy is normally stressing but driving during summer time can be even more.

Our experienced drivers will pick you all up at any location within Italy and drive back directly at your rented property. Of course the driver will be totally dedicated to your comfort therefore you can ask him to stop to eat or for a quick drink/coffee at any time you wish.

All our private transfers are made with very comfortable Mercedes car/vans all equipped with air conditioning.

You don't have to drive the narrow, winding, cliff-hugging Amalfi Coast road - you can leave that to the experts! Contact us if you wish to reserve a private transfer to your accommodation.
