Marcello U.

Napoli, Italy

Hi everybody, my name is Marcello, born and raised in Naples and belonging to a very old Neapolitan family.

I've got the official license of Professional Tour Guide in 2000, specialized in high grade archaeological and historical tours always based on keeping my clients "away from the massive tourism".
I love my job. I love my country. I love giving not simple orientations but the "real essence" of every single spot you are interested in.
My range of activities is the whole Campania Region, including all its archaeological and historical sites, like Pompeii, Herculaneum, Napoli, Paestum, royal palaces and museums.
I'm also specialized in the painting of '500 and '600, like Caravaggio, Tiziano, Raffaello, Jusepe de Ribeira, Battistello Caracciolo, and all the painters who" mastered the light".
I've got specialization in roman currency too.
I do cooperate with the U. S. Syracuse University, and over the past years, I had interesting experiences while working with some International TV productions as expert in archeology and art.

Some reviews about me have been written by Kerry Mullis (Noble Price), Donna Tart (Pulitzer in 2014), Zubin Meta ( World's greatest Orchestra Director), Jude Law, Hugh Jackman, the Jobs. . . . . . . .
You can see me on the CBS Sunday morning news runned on May 19th 2019 or using the link https://www. cbsnews. com/video/a-perfect-cup-of-espresso/
I also worked with Samantha Brown, american documentary maker, for the documentary 'Passport to Europe' and recently I've been working for the worldwide magazine Conde N'Est Traveler as local expert in history.
What else I can say, this is what I do with passion and responsibility……. . and always having a lot of fun.

A Recent Review of this guide

Marcello was such a fantastic guide! Couldn't ask for a better one. It's refreshing to have an archaeologist so passionate about Pompeii to be our guide. Definitely an extraordinary experience. The driver guide- Mario was awesome too. What surprised us the most was the both of them speak really good English. All in all, the entire tour was very professional and top-notched.
