It was way back in 1887, based on records and documentation, maybe even before then, that
Ercole De Gennaro with his carriage, already the oldest in Positano and Sorrento, worked
with passion and natural kindness as a tour operator, driving the first tourists around to
visit our wonderful places of interest. This tradition was later handed down to his son,
Nicola De Gennaro who continued the business from 1920. The first photographic documentation
dates back to that period.
Family tradition continues through the 1950s, which saw a radical change from the advent of
the car, a new revolution in tourist transport. Those where the years in which Nicola's son,
Alberico, founded Rainbow Limos, bringing the first cars to Positano and Sorrento.
So history and tradition pass from generation to generation; and with Alberico we are already at the third! The years go by and in 1981 we find in our midst a name we already know: Nicola De Gennaro Jr, who follows family tradition, adding a modern touch to the driving business by offering work opportunities to women as private drivers, including his wife Giulia D'Urso who thus becomes a member of the company with honours and also gives birth to the next generation: Alberico Jr, the youngest but nonetheless with the professional and courteous characteristics inherited through the five generations that have led to today.
We learnt from our long driving history the right skills to manage the Amalfi drive making safe every turn of the winding, but at the same time amazing, Amalfi Coast. Being a private driver for us is a passion increased through the over 100 years of our tradition. Driving is our past, our present and hopefully your future. At present, Rainbow Limos comprises six private drivers: Nicola, Giulia, Alberico, Luciano, Giuseppe and Bartolo who form not only a family but also a company, providing driver-guide services in English to customers, and seeking to offer the maximum to improve service and perpetuate tradition in Positano and Sorrento. Choose the best! Travel with Rainbow Limos: your private driver today, a new friend tomorrow...
