Ciao Fiorella, I just wanted to reach out to you and thank you for the incredible day we had in Napoli . We thoroughly enjoyed the adventures and unique interesting historical places we visited. Your knowledge of Napoli and its history were exemplary. Meeting some of your friends and local contacts along the way made the trip to Napoli so memorable and enjoyable. We as a group really felt the local vibe and history of this city on our tour for which we are very grateful !!!! The crème de la crème was that I actually was able to make a Margarita pizza in the city and birthplace of the original pizza. How cool is that ? Thanks again for making our memorable visit to Napoli one that will last a lifetime. Grazie mille, Nicholas, Thanuja, Gina and Dave :)

I did a tour of Elena Ferrante's Naples with Fiorella, and this is a must for anyone who loves the books (or the HBO series). Fiorella is extremely knowledgeable and charismatic, and Naples history is sprinkled into the tour as well lots of useful tips for visiting Naples. The driver was charming and knowledgeable as well. I would recommend Fiorella (who also does art and food tours) to anyone, and will use them again when I return to Naples. (Oh, and there are also some delicious snacks!)

I had the privilege of visiting Naples for the second time this year. I booked a Caravaggio and Capodimonte tour with Vesuvius vs Pompeii and Fiorella. Fiorella's energy and enthusiasm are truly contagious. She spent an entire day with me visiting the Historic Center. Although Pio Monte della Misericordia was closed to the public on that day, she made up for it by showing me other fascinating baroque sites that I wouldnt have visited otherwise. Three of my favorite places include: 1) Cappella Sansevero (instead of diving straight into the Cristo Velato statue, Fiorella gave me an excellent overview of Raimondo di Sangro, his talents, passion, the documentation of Sansevero, the story and symbolism behind the beautiful frescoed ceiling and the surrounding statues); 2) San Lorenzo Maggiore - it is stunning! there are remnants of mosaics from a paleochristian church, medieval elements, and of course stunning baroque decorations all on top of some fascinating Roman ruins; 3) Duomo di Napoli - It juxtaposes beautiful protorenaissance frescoes with lavish baroque decor. The visit to Capodimonte was also impressive. On the way there, I stopped by la Sanita to see Palazzo dello Spagnuolo and Palazzo San Felice. We also enjoyed a lovely fiocco di neve at Poppella. As for Capodimonte, the grounds are nothing short of stunning. Make sure you take in the panoramic views. Caravaggio's Flagellation of the Christ alone is worth the trip! I found it tremendously helpful to have Fiorella as a guide because it is humanly impossible to navigate the museum on your own. She honed in on the key masterpieces, the royal apartments, and the history. I cannot find the words to convey my appreciation for Vesuvius vs Pompeii and Fiorella. Thanks to them, I have fallen in love with Naples and I look forward to my next visit.

It was seriously hot the day we did this tour but the experience was amazing. Pompeii has been a bucket list item for me for a very long time. It was incredible to see the ruins and to then climb Vesuvius afterwards. Standing at the top and looking down was awe inspiring. The views are stunning and just so mind blowing to think about the destruction that will ensue when Vesuvius next erupts. Very humbling standing on an active volcano and smelling the sulfur and seeing steam coming out of vents in some places. Just wow!!!!
