Francesco P.

Torre Annunziata, Napoli, Italy

Hello everybody, my name is Francesco. I'm a licensed tourist guide for the Campania Region.

Local history is my great passion since I was a child and I feel lucky to have grown up in Torre Annunziata, a town by the sea in the middle of the amazing Bay of Naples, at the foot of Mount Vesuvius and just 5 minutes away from the ruins of Pompeii.
I've been working giving tours for 13 years.
After my studies, initially, I collaborated with some Mt. Vesuvius volcano guides, as a courier on a private bus with a private driver to pick up guests from different hotels and to lead them to the crater for a tour of the volcano. Later, I got the license as a local tourist guide and since then, every day I'm in a different fantastic place of the Campania Region: Pompeii, Herculaneum, Capri, Amalfi Coast, Mt. Vesuvius, Sorrento, Naples, Paestum, Phlegraean Fields.
I have had a lot of experience leading shore excursions for cruise passengers and leading tours for families, couples and small parties.
My tours are easy. I give all the historical, artistic and archaeological details but also information about food, customs and way of life of the locals. I also love telling anecdotes and funny stories related to the local history and traditions.
Of course, you know that Italy is the country of the good food. Campania Region is popular for its specialities and no doubt everywhere we go I can recommend you a place "for locals" to let you taste the most typical delicacies. Also, I collaborate with local food and beverage producers to arrange demonstrations and cooking classes (for pasta, mozzarella cheese, wine, coffee, pizza, pastries, ice cream, olive oil, limoncello, etc. ).
It's possible to customize the tours to your needs. Please, send me a message to let me know your requests and we can build up your tours together.
I would like you will experience your tours in the Bay of Naples with me.
Look forward to meeting you.
