Carmine F.

Napoli, Italy

Hello my name is Carmine. My father started as a tour guide in Naples in 1952 with a single hope to share the Italian culture with anyone who wanted to experience it.

In 1989 I joined my father as a certified escort and guide in Italy and focused on my hometown of Naples and the Amalfi Coast.

I have been sharing my hometown for over 27 years now and I have come to see that visiting my region can be very commercial. Most who visit never really got to feel Naples and the Amalfi coast for what it truly was. This region is filled with culture and experiences far beyond the tourist traps most tours limited their guests to. It is my goal for my guest to experience Italy, not just see it.

It is one thing to visit my country but it another thing to experience it. I want my guests to experience the Amalfi Coast and live the Italian culture, even if it is only for one day. But he only way to do this is to get off the beaten path, step back into a world that has not been affected by progress or change and immerse yourself in the culture of this region.

We breakaway from the tour bus experience and traverse small roads overlooking the most beautiful coast on the Mediterranean Sea. When you visit you will enjoy a true Farm to Table lunch experience. We will walk the terraced hillside and see where your food and wine came from and feel what it is like to be welcomed into the home and restaurant of an Italian family. This is the Italian Culture experience you are looking for.

When you experience the Amalfi Coast through my eyes you will see Italy for what it really is. Come, let me show you my hometown.
That's only one of the countless reason why you should contact me and find out more about it. I am positive that if you will come along on one of my tours you will absolutely love ii, and at the end of of it, you just like evryone else before on line call me "Crazy Carmine" Nickname that Rick Stevs gave me !

A Recent Review of this guide

I am SO glad I took Carmine’s “secret tour” through the untouristed country around Vesuvius and the Amalfi coast. Saw spectacular scenery and charming settlements that would have been difficult to get to on my own even if I knew about them. Carmine is very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and dedicated to his client having a top-notch, unforgettable experience. I certainly did. Made all the difference.
