Description

In this online experience, I will share what I learned during my studies about Pompeii, and together we will visit, through images and 3D effects, corners of the city far from the usual touristic paths. I will tell you all about the dramatic eruption of Mount Vesuvius that buried many, and of course, we will virtually see the people of Pompeii, recreated with plaster casts. We will virtually stroll down the streets, shops, bathhouses and theatres of the port city!

If you want to learn something special about Pompeii or really want to know what it’s like to be a Vesuvian archeologist, then send a message! Let me know your wishes and we can make this experience a personal one just for you.

Ciao! I am an authorized tour guide. I have a first degree in Archaeology and History of Art. Both travels and the experience of living abroad have made me understand how lucky I am to live in Naples! It’s a city with a unique charm, where you can breathe history and art in every corner. I would like to introduce you to my colleagues; Riccardo, a Neapolitan Guide, and an Archaeologist; and Teresa, a Ph.D. Doctor in Archaeology and an authorized tour guide (since 2015).

    We were unsure about how the experience would go but the low pricing made it worth to give it a try. We had our parents who are in India join because they were all locked up at home being in the vulnerable category and this was a good distraction for them.

    Teresa was also doing her first online session but she was very well prepared. We really enjoyed the session and it was clear she was very passionate. She also did a great job to integrate multiple forms of multimedia (ppt, youtube, google maps, etc) to give us as best a virtual experience as one can do. She was also very patient in listening to our questions.

    We are now looking to book some other online virtual experience on TourHQ!

    Never thought a history tour would be this fascinating. The guide really has a way to grab the audience's attention!

    It was one of the best 1/1.30 hrs I have spent during the lockdown. He transported me to a different world, to that fateful day through his powerful narrative of the ruins. He worked under constraints due to the lockdown but I never felt the constraint as a recipient of the service. His knowledge, his conviction made the tour not only a memorable one, a highly educative one too. I am yet to visit Pompeii but this tour has given me not only a full flavour of the place and its history but also created enough curiosity and interest to learn more before finally I am able to visit oneday. He will be the guide who I will definitely go with on the actual tour too. Super impressed and grateful to TourHQ for providing this opportunity in these times.
