Alessandra R.

Napoli, Italy

Welcome to Naples! My name is Alessandra and I have been a Licensed Tour Guide of Campania Region since 2004.

I am truly passionate about Naples. My grandad, who was an expert in history and classical music, passed on his deep love to me when I was a child, telling me the history of Naples, its legends and taking me to visit Pompeii, Herculaneum and the city museums almost every weekend! Since then I have never stopped reading and studying about Naples.
I was born in Naples city centre and after working all around the world (the UK, Iran, North Italy), I have chosen to come back to Naples to live here and to enjoy every day its incredible, unusual and unique beauty.
Naples is an open-air museum and a vibrant stage where travellers can take part in its colourful performances. Visiting Naples means to experience also its intangible cultural heritage, made up of its traditional and contemporary music, its moving melange of Mediterranean colours.
Walking through its markets, you can be invaded by inebriating fragrances of aromatic herbs and spices, which invite you to taste one of the most delicious cuisines of the world . It is impossible to resist Neapolitan street food! Moreover, people, with their warmth and exhilarating dialect will make your trip unforgettable. The list of experiences you can have in Naples is almost endless!
I am an independent traveller and during my journeys abroad, I always look for the "authenticity" of my experiences. And as a tourist guide, the authenticity is what I would like to share with my guests, together with accuracy and attention to detail. Therefore, I usually propose a mix of historical and mythological elements, showing secrets that only locals know, in order to enjoy the Neapolitan way of life, without forgetting its night movida.
I am an expert swimmer too, and I love snorkelling to take pictures of the local sea life and of underwater archaeological remains, lying a few meters under the sea levels. For this reason, I also organise snorkelling tours to discover the treasures in the Gulf of Naples by kayak or by traditional motorboats, called "gozzo".
Beyond the range of tours I propose, if you are interested in a specially tailor-made tour, do not hesitate to contact me. Moreover, each tour can be enriched with lessons to make the real Neapolitan Pizza or lessons to learn the basic Neapolitan language!

A Recent Review of this guide

Alessandra was a wonderful guide. She gave us a history of Napoli as we travelled by private minibus that was exceptionally clean with great air-conditioning. My two older teens enjoyed the Kayaking and snorkelling. The sea was a little rough but we were guided well by Alessandra and the Kayak guide Andrea. After the kayaking we went to a private beach for a swim. They were barbecuing fresh seafood there that smelt wonderful. A glorious day, highly recommended Five out of five Thanks Alessandra.
