On our tour we were accompanied by Carlo, an excellent guide, prepared and nice, impossible to get bored or tired, he always found a way to capture our attention. The tour is well organized, in addition to the stages indicated, Carlo suggested other points of interest that we then visited on our own, such as the Cloister of Santa Chiara. The visit to the Sansevero Chapel was very suggestive and here Carlo exceeded all expectations, his description of the Veiled Christ moved us to make us perceive the living body, about to rise and rise again .. a unique work that alone deserves travel. We advise everyone to be guided in the visit of Naples, they are two and a half hours intense that leave a pleasant and indelible memory! Thanks Carlo!

We took the tour with our 11 and 7 year old girls, very well organized it was suitable for young and old. Our guide Carlo proved to be punctual, prepared and patient always ready to answer all questions and was able to involve all the participants very well.
