Antonella was amazing and knowledgeable. She offered a very interesting tour of Ercolano's excavations and even mentioned the "colatura di alici" that was cooked in the thermopolium! Cherry on the cake, thanks to the Trenitalia's strike, I was lucky to have a private tour.

Absolutely amazing. Sergio Pisco was a fantastic knowledgeable guide for this place. I felt sorry for people walking around with their noses in guide books while we were getting so much knowledge and questions answered by Sergio. It is so worthwhile to take the guided tour
