Andrea F.

Napoli, Italy

I am confident that I will be your perfect guide in Naples and the Campania region.

I have lived here all my life and I have a deep love for its art, music, architecture, cuisine, natural beauty and of course, people.
I have shared this world with many, many visitors, who have returned home with the idea that Naples offers a vast range of experiences and can accommodate the interests of people from all backgrounds. I have an intimate knowledge of the variety of this area and at the same time, I have a cosmopolitan sensibility that allows me to attune the desires of travellers.

When I was 14 years old I started working as an actor in theatres and this gave me a good power of communication and discipline. Even at the present time, I try to put something "theatrics" on my tours too :-)

Naples has sometimes a reputation for being a "difficult" city. I can show you quite the opposite. Naples has opened its arms and heart to visitors for centuries. Neapolitans and the people of Campania in general, are extraordinarily open to meaningful encounters with strangers, animated with wit, appreciation, and a deep respect for humanity.
The city itself, with its vast historical centre (the largest in Europe) and its many hidden gems tucked away in its labyrinthine 'vicoli', is an alluring mystery that only an openhearted Neapolitan guide can fully reveal.
There are many openhearted Neapolitans, and each can show you something beautiful about our world, but my knowledge is wide-ranging, studied and therefore well suited for the commitment expected of a paying visitor relying on an expert guide.
