Gianluca is a terrific guide. He met us at the gate to Pompeii, and from 9 o’clock until a little after 11 AM, he filled us with so much wonderful information, answered so many questions, and he just knew and knew and knew about Pompeii and the Roman culture. He is the very best guideI think I’ve ever had— engaging, intelligent, humorous, and always willing to listen to questions, and answer them completely. I was very impressed, as was my husband. I would recommend this tour -1specifically with Gianluca —to anyone who truly wants to learn about the history, the culture and the significance of Pompeii.
