I'm a restorer, an art historian and TOUR GUIDE, specifically for families with children.
I have worked for many years in restoration laboratories in Naples, Sorrento, Cava dei Tirreni, Pompeii and Oplontis. My area of expertise is the restoration of the pictorial film into frescos, paintings on canvas, wood and statues.
In 2014 I qualified to work as a tour guide of the Campania Region delivering guides in both Italian and English. At present, I have the good fortune to be also involved in the tourist industry, organizing and designing itineraries and specially guided tours. I really enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with people from a diverse range of cultural, professional and academic backgrounds.
The tours that meet me most are those with FAMILIES with CHILDREN and adolescents, I can now claim to be an expert in this type of services.
A Recent Review of this guide
Felicia was an extremely knowledgeable tour guide who shared a great deal of expertise and made Pompeii come alive for me and my family. Well informed with a wealth of information at her fingertips due to her educational background as an art historian/preservationist. She managed to offer so many insights during our leisurely stroll around Pompeii, stopping at not only the "highlights" but also pointing out facts about the infrastructure and daily life of the ancient city. Highly fluent idiomatic English
