La nostra guida, il signor Carlo si è dimostrata persona fantastica, io non potevo usare l’apparecchio x l’ascolto lui si è attivato per tenermi vicina e raccontarmi tutto il percorso, grande sapere e grande narratore, fortemente empatico è per nulla stucchevole, come spesso succede. Io e la mia amica siamo rimaste entusiaste, raccomanderemo alle amiche questa splendida guida. Come direbbe mia nipote, tanta roba. Ancora grazie.

Carlo, prepared and nice, in my opinion, it would be better to see the "Veiled Christ" first and then go around the center of Naples. Too bad we can't have some souvenir photos from inside. A nice Tour to improve the route.

The proposed tour is interesting. Short but intense. Very valid the guide that has proved to be prepared and sober in the exposure also satisfying the requests of the group.

Perfect tour both in terms of content and timing ending with the wonderful Veiled Christ not to be missed!

Very interesting visit. The guide Carlo, very pleasant full of anecdotes and good advice
