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.

A Recent Review of this tour

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Simona along the venues of Elena Ferrante's wonderful book "my brilliant friend". Particularly the deep insights into the society these days and the link to where we are today. Her knowledge and wisdom combined with the ability to connect with us and to take us on a journey was exceptional! Many thanks!
