A little bit about Mariachiara
Buongiorno! My name is Mariachiara and I am an official tour guide of Campania region. I was born and bred in Sorrento, a pretty town set on the bay of Naples where I still live today!
After a diploma in tourism I graduated in Archaeology and Art History at University of Naples and, in the meantime, I approached the travel industry, working as a tour director in the Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast areas.
In 2008 I moved to Oxford (U.K.) where I attended an intensive English course for nearly one year. Like it or not, I had to practice the language since I was the only Italian among many foreigners! Some years later I obtained the license of tour guide in Campania region and since then I do enjoy guiding my clients through the treasures of this territory.
My passion for Roman art and history led me to organize tours addressed mostly to Pompeii and the other Vesuvian towns destroyed by the eruption of 79 A.D., when the whole area was under the Roman influence. My aim is to provide my clients with a wide perspective of the Roman history, culture and beliefs of this territory and, if requested, an in-depth analysis of some peculiar features, such as domestic architecture, art of gardening, religion, life after death.
You can choose the tour that fits your expectations or we can plan together the one which works better for you; I am happy to meet your needs so I can customize the tour to make it perfect as you wish.
