Meet the Guide: Marco from Sorrento, Italy

(back to blog)

Today we get to introduce you to Marco, a part of our incredible team of local guides in Italy. Marco hails from Sorrento, near the Amalfi Coast, and has already led 50 groups of ToursByLocals travellers on tours of his region, earning consistent 5-star reviews in his first year on our team.
1. Guideā€™s name:
Hi, I am Marco from Sorrento-Italy.

2. Why I became a guide:
I like the idea of sharing my knowledge about my beautiful area with people who come from other countries. I was born and raised in Sorrento, which has welcomed tourists since the Roman times; I decided to become a local-guide because I was upset when I saw tourists doing and looking at always the same things, but none of them were enjoying my area at its best.

3. What do you love about your part of the world?
I love my city and region because here you can enjoy good food, (the best Neapolitan pizza, pasta and seafood and fresh cheese), great views (the Amalfi coast is one of the most beautiful places in the world) and history (at the ancient sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum).

4. What is your favourite local restaurant? It would be restrictive to mention one single local restaurant (there are too many good ones!) but if you have a special occasion "Don Alfonso" restaurant (2 Michelin stars) is your place.

If you're headed to the Amalfi Coast, we suggest you get in touch with Marco and see how he can help make your time in his region extraordinary!
