Benvenuto Limos and Private Tours
Benvenuto Limousine is a fully established and continuously expanding family owned and operated Chauffeur Company that has been in operation for over 65 years.Headquartered along the Amalfi coast, we operate all over Italy.
Travelers descended on the Amalfi Coast, named for the royal family that once ruled the South of Italy, eager to explore and some of them stayed which increased the population.
Because of the boon in visitors, the priest suggested that my grandfather give up his job as a fisherman and become a driver for tourists. It didn't take long for Giovanni to agree and he began chauffeuring them around in a Aston 1100 he called " Giuseppina," in honor of the woman he later married. Giovanni happily accompanied tourists as they visited the coastline, sharing his knowledge of the picturesque sights and winning them over with his genuine charm.
He called the ladies "Belle Margherite," which means beautiful daisy and swiftly developed a reputation for his outstanding service. Soon, the Admiral of King Umberto II di Savoia's army, enlisted Giovanni to chauffeur him between his base in Naples and the Amalfi Coast. The two met during World War II and the Admiral was so impressed with my grandfather that he assigned him to drive the King.
From that day forward, Giovanni became well acquainted with the King. During the time Italy was transformed from a monarchy to a republic, the King was relocated to Ravello. My grandfather accompanied him and the two spent much of their spare time fishing together in Praiano. After his initial foray into the business, Giovanni continued being a chauffeur, which laid the foundation for our family-oriented business. Once my father Umberto retired from the Navy, he joined my grandfather. Life at sea made him realize that he belonged at home in Praiano to follow in the footsteps of my grandfather.
Today, my father and I take great pride in using the experiences shared by my grandfather to continue the legacy he started by helping tourists discover the outstanding beauty and magnificent scenery that graces all of Italy.
