I loved every exam I had of archeology and I can say that it was my favourite subject: I could learn everything about my surroundings and about the population of the Ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum before the famous eruption of Vesuvius; it was fascinating to discover their way of living and their culture.
Since I was a child I have always taken a great delight in history, visual arts and I enjoyed a lot drawing pencil portraits. I am keen on travelling and learning, I love photography and I like to create photo art. I also enjoy a good glass of wine during the evening - typical Italian, you could say! I love different types of wine so, if you need a suggestion for that, please do not hesitate to ask, I will be more than happy to tell you about our wines too, apart from our history!
However, my greatest passion is music: I listen to many genres of music, from classical to rock, blues and jazz. Furthermore I like to sing and I've been playing the piano and keyboard for several years. Maybe one day you will see me somewhere singing about my beautiful region!
I'm an easygoing person with a sunny disposition. It will be a great pleasure for me to offer my skills in archaeological and art-historical sites for anyone who wants to investigate and explore the amazing cultural richness of the Campania Region.
I will make sure you don't miss a thing of the area and I will show you my enthusiasm for this region and all its beautiful settings; I am sure you will fall in love with it just like I have during the years and during all my studies, where I tried my best to learn everything I could - I am constantly reading and learning new things and always studying about my region, since there is always something new to learn and we always discover new things. . .
It's the best job I could ask for, to learn about my culture and to help other learn about everything here in the area.
I'm really looking forward to meeting you!
A Recent Review of this guide
Sergio was a terrific guide to Pompeii and Herculaneum; he has actually worked at Pompeii as an archaeologist, and had a very deep knowledge of and enthusiasm for both sites. He fully answered my questions, and addressed my particular interests. He is personable, professional, and his knowledge is huge. I recommend him as a guide without reservation. A five-hour tour with him was not cheap, but hugely worth it, and turned out to be the most memorable part of this trip.
I graduated in Art History in 2010.
I obtained a post-graduate degree in History.
I successfully obtained a license as a tour guide of the Region Campania in 2011.
