What you can expect

Let's discover the ancient Roman life hidden between the ruins of Pompeii! Join me for a unique private tour created exclusively for you!

I'm an enthusiastic archaeologist with a vast knowledge of the Greco-Roman history and all it's wonders! I'll make sure to share my love for past civilizations with you!

Travel in the past with me and learn about the the little details of the daily life and the amazing architectonic buildings. See why the Roman empire held one of the most important civilizations the world has ever seen. Walk in the footsteps of a Pompeii citizen, understand how they enjoyed life, how they worked and what they valued.

In this 3 hour walking tour you'll see the most important areas of the ancient city, like the Porta Marina(Sea Gate), the Main Square, The Roman Forum and the The Temple of Apollo. Think it can't get better? It actually can! I'll also bring you to hidden spots out of the tourist routes and tell you all about them.

Since part of your experience will happen on our train ride from Naples to Pompeii, we'll take this time to talk about the Roman civilization, all its interesting traditions and the tragic end of Pompeii caused by the eruption of Vesuvius.

If you're coming from Rome to Napoli by yourself, take the high speed train Frecciarossa which will take you to Napoli in around one hour (it goes up to 400kn per hour). The ride itself will be a unique experience! The train runs every hour and you can even book your ticket online (not included in this tour's cost).

Don't forget than this tour can be 100% personalized to your needs and wishes. Want to add a specific spot on our walk though the old city? No problem! I also offer an option of private transportation from Rome (at an extra price), just contact me and I'll give you all the details!

I obtained bachelor degree in Cultural Heritage, master degree in Classical Archaeology and the diploma of Post-Graduate School in Archeological Heritage.

I’m an authorized guide of Campania Region since 2011 and also I worked like archaeologist in all around the Mediterranean sea: Populonia (Livorno, Italy), Paestum (Salerno, Italy), Olbia de Provance (Hyères, Var –France), Efestia (Lemnos, Greece), Phaistos, (Crete, Greece).
Since I was a child I loved history of ancient Greeks and Romans and also the Art history from the Middle Age to the Avanguardie of the ‘900.

I live in Salerno a characteristic sea town located between the paradise of Amalfi Coast and the charming Cilento.

I'm going to offer my knowledge in the art-historical and archaeological field for anyone who wants to understand and investigate the incredible richness of the Campania Region.
Together we will discover the secrets of ancient Greeks and Romans that already in the past they knew the incomparable beauty of this places.

I collaborate with Slow Food (an international movement that strives to preserve traditional and regional cuisine and encourages farming of plants, seeds and livestock characteristic of the local ecosystem) and so I organize specific tours to those who want to discover the authentic pleasures of wine and food."
