We highly recommend Gaetano. As a third generation Pompeii guide, he knows the site like the back of his hand. He keeps up to date on all of the newest findings and knows all of the theories about what life was like there in 79AD. We had 10 people in our group of friends and family, including teens, and Gaetano made the tour interesting for everyone and answered all of our questions. We all loved our visit and learned a lot. Additionally, Gaetano was very quick to respond and helped us with choosing the right trains and stations for our day trip from Rome. He also booked our local transportation and arranged a private group tour of the Naples Museum. Gaetano made our visit easy, comfortable, entertaining and educational. You will love him as much as we did!

I agree with my kids (18 and 16) that this was the best tour we had in Italy. Gaetano shows you the best spots and gives you an idea of the scope of Pompeii. He did not simply recite figures, dates and names of archaeologists. Instead, Gaetano showed us what it was like to live under the shadow of Vesuvius at the height of the Roman civilization. He gave us a sense and a feel for the place. He also entertained us. Only someone with a deep love of the subject matter can share as well as Gaetano. Bravo.

This was my second visit to Pompeii with Gaetano as guide. Not only was this as informative and fascinating as the first trip, but the route he led through the ruins was different than that of several years prior. I have never found dates to be the most important or memorable part of history. As you will learn with Gaetano, the footsteps of those residents have been left for us to rediscover, even the sounds and smells will be brought alive. He is a master at making the history vibrant and unforgettable.

Gaetano was truly spectacular. He has such a deep knowledge and appreciation for the ruins. He hails from a long line of historians (3rd generation) and still delivers the stories with such passion. I was able to book him through contacting via email: gmguide63@gmail.com and found him to be very responsive (he was even able to fit me in last minute). That being said, I booked him during a low season so if you’re coming in the height of summer, please do yourself a favor and contact him in advance. Forget the audio tour, you’ve already hopped a plane to experience the richness Italy has to offer, why cut yourself short now? Thank me later, D

This experience far exceeded out expectations! Gaetano made our day in Pompeii such an enjoyable experience. Starting with help arranging transportation from our train in Naples to Pompeii and on to Positano, everything went very smoothly. He even had a table waiting near the Pompeii entrance so we could grab a quick bite for lunch! The tour itself was very enjoyable and informative. Gaetano’s passion for Pompeii made the ancient city come alive in our minds. This will be one thing remember for years to come.
