I was born in New York, my parents are from Italy, they had a Neapolitan pizzeria but having been born and raised between Sorrento and the Amalfi coast, their dream was to return one day to these wonderful places; so when after a few years they decided to return to their homeland, they bought a house with a garden halfway between Sorrento and Positano, where we still produce our extra virgin olive oil, wine, tomatoes and many other things.
The passion for food, nature and the beautiful land where I live led me to study at the University of Naples Federico II, Food Science and Technology, strengthening my knowledge about the production of these wonderful products. After university I decided to open a factory of liqueurs (like the famous limoncello), jams, pickles, aromatic oils with different spices. . .
After a lot of years engaged in this business, I often found myself bringing customers and friends to take a panoramic tour of the Amalfi coast and see their eyes astonished by all that beauty made me happy and so I decided to totally change work and I became a professional driver and every day I share with my clients all my knowledge about the ancient history of this part of Italy, the culinary traditions, the production methods of the most famous products (the recipe of my limoncello is the best in absolute) and being also a great fan of photography, I know the best places to take pictures that will make the memory of your holiday indelible!
Today it is 10 years that this has become my job and I can say with certainty of knowing Naples, Sorrento, Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast perfectly and I would like to always show more people the coast far from the tourist routes!
My tours are the result of the experience gained in the last 30 years of my life, as since I was just a kid I worked in the pizza place of my family, then at 18yo I decided to study Science and technology of food at the University of Naples and that brought me to open a factory of Limocello, marmalades, vegetables in extravirgin olive oil, here in Sorrento...ant it was my business for about 12 years.
I am not a licensed guide and will not be able to guide you inside of the historical monuments, but I work with one of the best guide of the area and if you need a licensed guide for a visit in Pompeii or any other monument I'm able to provide it.
