I was born and I live in Salerno, a town in Southern Italy, close to the Amalfi Coast.
I'm graduated in Foreign Languages (Arabic, Portuguese and English) and I have a Master Degree in History of Art and Cultural Heritage.
I worked in Spain for two years with an Italian Tour Operator. I was selling package holidays to Spanish agencies.
In 2014, I took my Tour Guide Licence, because I wanted to change direction with my career as a Tour guide.
I started part-time working at the Botanical Garden of Salerno and teaching junior and secondary aged students in Orienteering, an outdoor sport.
During this period, the Garden Tours Department asked me to take visitors on two hours tours of Salerno, which lead on to self-organised tours around the historical sites of Campania Region.
Today, I do tours around the region, in particular, tours of Pompeii, Herculaneum, Amalfi, Ravello and Paestum.
My tours are comprehensive, funny and are designed to inform you about the people, culture and history of this wonderful land.
I aim to grab the interest of visitors, deepening the understanding of local history, using the anecdotal history alongside the classical facts.
Please feel free to contact me to plan your tours.
A Recent Review of this guide
I highly recommend this tour of historic Salerno, including St Matthew's Cathedral. The crypt in that cathedral should not be missed. Its baroque style is used to decorate every square inch of the crypt including the ceiling and the burial tomb. We also visited "Minerva's Garden" which besides providing views of many plants and herbs, allowed a scenic view below of the sea, the harbor and the city. Another site to visit on this tour is Arechi's castle, originally built in the 6th century.
