Two different towns reflecting the variety and richness of this region: Campania.
Naples, Pompeii, Amalfi coast, Sorrento, Salerno, Capri: my passion for the wonderful art treasures and landscapes of my region inspired me to study hard to become a Tourist Guide! With a 14 year of experience as a professional tourist guide now, I still feel that this is a great job, and I do it day after day with the same enthusiasm!
I like calling myself a "gourmet", and in my tours I always try to combine art and culture with the local gastronomy - which is culture too, I think! You will often find in my tours wine and food tastings, or visits to farms and factories to see how the best food is made. I love discovering - and making other people discover - the best producers and talk to the people whose hands produce mozzarella, olive oil, pasta, tomatoes.
During and after University in Naples, I studied and lived in Belgium and in Germany. Since 2004 I got the official Tourist Guide License by Regione Campania. I wrote articles about gastronomy and nature for the magazine "Campania Felix". I also worked for the organization of different cultural institutions like film festivals and a dance festival, as well as an editor at publishers' in Naples.
Book a tour in or from Salerno with me, and you'll experience an unforgettable day in this wonderful country. Looking forward to meeting you in Salerno!
A Recent Review of this guide
Simona did a great job on our one-day walking tour of Naples. She helped us learn a great deal about the city and included the major sites in which we had expressed an interest. More importantly, she shared her love of the city and suggested additional things we had time for that day. We loved the pace of the tour, the stopping for coffee to learn about Neapolitan pastries, and the local pizza place she suggested for lunch. While we loved the cruise and other tours we took, her tour was a favorite.
