Marcello arranged a custom tour for our second day in Naples. He met us again at the train station, and took us in his car first to the Capodimonte Art Museum, with familiar paintings by Caravaggio, Titian, etc., which I had previously only seen in photos. The second portion was a visit to the San Martino Monastery-Museum on the Vomero hill overlooking the gulf. Finally, he dropped us off at the port for a fast ferry back to Sorrento. Based on our two days with Marcello, I would highly recommend him.

The Masters of Art tour was just what I was seeking, especially when conducted by an archaeologist and art historian. With us coming from Sorrento, Marcello met us at the train station, and took us by subway to the historic area. Highlights of the walking tour were the majolica tiles of the Santa Chiara Cloister, and Caravaggio's Seven Works of Mercy. Highlights of the Archaeological Museum were of course the Farnese marble sculptures, the Farnese Tazza, and the mosaic tiles recovered from Pompeii.

On our 2nd day with Marcello, we ventured further. Among other places, we visited the Museo di Capodimonte, which was truly amazing - so much amazing art including Caravaggio's Flagellation of Christ. Marcello told us of the rulers and popes of the time. We also visited the Certosa di S. Martino, which was a most impressive (and richly decorated) monastery. Another fascinating place. We had an great pasta lunch in a traditional restaurant surrounded by locals. It was a great day.

This was the first of 3 days spent touring with Marcello. He is a great representative for his city and shows her off well. This day we spent time with Caravaggio's 7 works of mercy and visited the veiled Christ sculpture - two amazing pieces of art. We walked the streets of the historic district, stopping to see nativity scenes and eat some great food. Marcello knows and loves the art of Napoli and conveys that well. We enjoyed the day.

I booked a two-hour tour with Marcello to go to the Naples Archeological Museum for my husband's birthday. We had a fantastic time. Marcello obviously loves his subject and makes it come alive. We learned a ton from him and really hope to get back to Naples soon to do another trip with him. It was a highlight of our two week trip to Italy. Thanks Marcello!

Our family (2 parents and 3 adult kids) very much enjoyed our tour of Naples with Marcello. There was so much to cover as we'd never visited Naples. Marcello really knows his stuff and made our tour fun and interesting. We visited the Centro Storico, saw some of the main piazzas, churches (from the outside) and learnt about the long history of Naples. I highly recommend Marcello!

Last week my husband and I took two tours with Marcello and were more than satisfied. We were over the moon with the half day art tour of Naples and our full day in Pompeii was nothing short of magical. Marcello was so accommodating to the fact of my disabilities and we shared delicious lunches together in scintillating conversation. We feel so luck to have found him. Bravo
