Emiliano is wonderfully, seriously knowledgeable! He is an archaeologist and easily talks on the broad topics as well as details. He can read and translate the Latin inscriptions and graffeti. He answered the toughest questions from my daughters. I am grateful he suggested visiting Oplontis, a site I hadn't even known about. He is a very nice man. The tours went through without hiccup. I heartily and enthusiastically recommend Emiliano, even if you already know lots about Pompeii.
