This tour consists in a marvelous walk around of the ancient Roman city of Pompeii buried from the ashes of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 a. D and in a tour of amazing city of Naples including the National Archaeological Museum.
A walk in Pompeii is a very intense experience; you'll have the feeling of wandering in a still alive town. I will explain you the history of the town and how the Romans lived showing you all the most important public buildings and private houses.
Naples is a brilliant city on Italy's southwest cost; it's a mishmash of architectural styles, with elegant 18th-century palazzos, castles and wonderful churches.
The city, settled by the ancient Greeks, was at one time the capital of southern Italy. Throughout the century's Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Swabia’s and Spanish bourbons also settled here.
A lot of history and traditions are condensed in the old city center where Neapolitans live since the VI century before Christ.
We’ll also show you the preciousArchaeological Museum of Naples, that preserves most of the extraordinary masterworks of art discovered in Pompeii, Herculaneum, Stabiae, Oplontis and also the most beautiful statues collected in Rome during the 16th century by the cardinals of the family Farnese. Today we can state that the National Archaeological Museum of Naples displays the WORLD MOST BEAUTIFUL ROMAN ART COLLECTION.
Naples is also the city of the PIZZA; don't miss the occasion to try an original brick's oven Margherita!
My name is Emiliano Tufano. I am an archaeologist and tour guide. I'm specialized in archaeological and cultural tours in Campania. When I was ten years old I found a piece of painted pottery on a small piece of land belonging to my family, which is located nearby the ancient Greek city of Paestum. For the whole of that day I kept this piece of history in my hands. I remember that it was decorated with a black figured scene of a Satyr driving a biga. The feeling I had when realized it was a genuine antique object was very strong, and I started asking myself many questions about the people who occupied that area across the centuries and, particularly, about the man who made such a beautiful piece of work. Since then I started collecting all sorts of pots and stones that I found while I wandered through the countryside. I used to divide my finds simply on the basis of their shape and color. They were the first steps of me becoming an archaeologist. At school, history was my favorite subject; therefore my decision of which degree course to choose was an easy one, Archaeology. Today, archaeology is my profession and my passion. Throughout the years I developed skills in fieldwork and academic research. I participated as a field director in several excavation projects of fundamental importance across Italy and I was engaged in significant academic research projects in Sicily, Tunisia and Libya. I now fulfill my ambition with a PhD project about the Sicilian prehistory. However, my interests go beyond just the history. I have a strong creative side and I love photography, and I write articles for a newspaper in my local area, play football and enjoy diving. I enjoy traveling and have been to many different countries, where I always make particular efforts to learn as much of the local language and culture as possible. In 2010 I became qualified to work as a tourist guide of the Campania Region, and today I offer guided tours in Italian, English and Spanish. I live my job with passion and professionalism. With me you can visit the wonders of Campania: the Vesuvian archaeological sites of Pompeii, Herculaneum and other beautiful sites, such as the historic centers of Naples, Caserta and Salerno, the Amalfi Coast and Sorrento Coast, all the major churches and museums.
