Amazing Naples tour on Elena's and Lila's traces
THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOMIZED TO MEET YOUR NEEDS
Elena Ferrante's four novels of the series "My brilliant friend" is an international literary phenomenon. For other passionate readers like me, I do make tours through Naples by following Lila's and Elena's traces. First you will see the working class suburbia where the girls grew up. Then you'll walk through other neighborhoods that they attended by going to school, working in a library or in the shoe shop, or just along their walks.
While telling about Lila's and Elena's stories, the book describes in a very realistic way most of Naples' quarters. So this tour is ideal to see different sides of such a controversial town, always surprising in its good as well as in its bad aspects. The knowledge of Naples you will get through this tour is complete from architectural, as well as social and cultural points of view.

We had an unforgettable day with Simona. She took us on the Elena Ferrante tour and she showed us the city of Naples, and told us about its history and its people. Simona knew the answer to all our questions - and we had a lot ;). The very best: she spontaneously responded to our ideas and wishes (such as a ride on the funicolare to Vomero). It was like a trip with a good old friend. Grazie mille, Simona!
