You Can’t Find A Better Guide to Pompeii!
Nancy_D, Sep 2023
Daniela Mantice was our guide, and as an art historian she really brought Pompeii to life in a wonderful way. From the history, the people, the cultures to the chemical reactions between Vesuvius’s storm and the city’s painted surfaces, Daniela’s span of knowledge was highly impressive. She has worked with one of the most renowned historian of Herculaneum and Pompeii on the planet, and I am sure he learned from her! She answered our questions and we enjoyed her liveliness and humor. I could not possibly recommend her highly enough.

Excellent tour. This is the way to see Pompeii. Our guide was an archeologist, and her knowledge of the history, architecture and culture was more than we could ever have expected. Money well spent!

Muy interesante visita a Pompeya durante tres horas. La guia Lia nos informó de montones de detalles, muy clara y sin perder tiempo. Un placer el recorrido, que fue ameno, con una buena profesional a la que se nota que le gusta lo que hace. Totalmente recomendable.
