Private tour guide Marcello

Marcello U.

Napoli, Italy

Ciao, sono Marcello! Allow me to introduce you amazing Italy!

First, maybe, you'd want to know something about me, my story, my experiences. . .
Born and raised in Naples, in 1969, I belong to a very old Neapolitan family, especially my mom's side. They were the Buonocore's, which in English means "good heart", originally from Spain. It was a noble family who moved over here to Naples during the reign of Charles of Bourbon, king of Naples since 1734. Old and noble Neapolitan family but we don't have any nobility rank anymore (not my fault. . . he he he, sorry).
I got the official license of Professional Tour Guide in 2000, specialized in high grade archaeological and historical tours.
Over the past years, I had interesting experiences while working with people from all over the world, upgrading my knowledge, never stop studying English and also Archaeology at the University of Naples. After many years of experience, I'm able to welcome people of all kinds and levels of knowledge.
Some reviews about me have been written by Kerry Mullis, Noble Price, Donna Tart, Pulitzer in 2014, Zubin Meta, a World's greatest Orchestra Director, Jude Law. 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 a local tour guide and producer.
But, you know what? the truth is. . . who my guests are or what they do is not my business. I do my best every single day, regardless of who I'm working with.

My range of activities is the Campania Region, including all its archaeological and historical sites, like Pompeii, Herculaneum, Stabia, Napoli.
Also, I know many things about all the main painting collections, and I'm specialized in the painting of '600, like Caravaggio, Jusepe de Ribeira, Battistello Caracciolo, and all the painters who" mastered the light".

This is what I do with passion and responsibility!
