Paolo G.

Pompei, Napoli, Italy

Hello everyone, I'm an archaeologist and a licensed tour guide.

I was born in Forlì, a small picturesque city located in northern Italy not far from Bologna. And it was there, in my childhood, where I took my first steps in the world of archeology, going with my friends in search of fossils and other ancient objects.
I graduated at the University of Bologna obtaining a degree in Cultural Heritage and I completed the postgraduate school in Classical Archaeology at the University of Padua.
To follow my passion and my job I have lived in several cities in Italy and Greece. Since 2009 I have enjoyed living and working in Castellammare di Stabia, a quaint maritime town near Pompeii where you could say I "landed" and have remained ever since.
On the roman site of Stabiae, famous mainly for its Roman seaside villas, I'm lucky enough to be responsible for directing and coordinating excavations and restoration projects, teaming up with archaeologists and restorers from all over the world.
I have also been a licensed tour guide of the Campania Region since 2014, so when I'm not involved with excavation work, I love to share my time and my knowledge with students, art lovers and tourists showing them the archaeological and artistic treasures of this enchanting corner of Italy.
What else can I say? . . . I 'm waiting for you here to spend some unforgettable days together!

A Recent Review of this guide

The tour was amazing and completely worth it. Paolo is very knowledgable and gave us a thorough arquealogical explanation. He always answered out questions and kept them in mind to show us further on examples of what we had asked anout. Having the tour allowed us to visit both places with no lost time and needless walking around, which was essential since it was really hot and we have 2 kids. Our driver was Francesco, who also did an outstanding job, and was on time, very professional and helpful.
