Our philosophy: tailor made on you!

What is the sense of travelling? We think it is not just seeing new places!

Furthermore it means meeting other cultures, people, their way of living. Monuments and arts are a result of the history of a country, of its culture. In the same way food is a result of all that, because it is a way for people to express themselves every day in their kitchen….

We consider all these elements belonging together: that’s why we like linking in our tours art with food and any other local tradition.

How do we do this? First of all: what is important to us it’s You: What are you interested in? What do you expect in visiting our region? What are your (logistic, family, time, etc.) requirements? Because everyone is different… We will “tailor” the tour program after your demands, and it will perfectly fit on you.

That’s also why we only make private tours, for families and for friends groups.

What we do
We help making out of your travel a dream!

Are you a gourmet or a passionate about wine? Do you like visiting farms and factories to learn more about how specialty food is produced? No need to say that with Italy – and especially with our region – you are in the right place! We are always on the hunt of little pasta, wine, olive oil or cheese producers, and furthermore we like sharing this food culture and the personal meetings with other people like you.
In Naples we do a one day tour with several tastings of typical dishes, following a century old tradition.

The experiences

Do you love so much art and want to get more into it, meeting a true artist – a painter or a sculptor -, talking to him/her and looking at his/her work? Or are you an artist and would like to meet painters or ceramists here in Southern Italy and get a one- to three day experience (or even up to a week) of painting or working with them?

Or you simply want to enjoy a morning meeting an artist and learning more about his work, and share some spaghetti at his home?
We can help you arrange all this kind of activities, in Naples and on the Amalfi coast. Have with us un unforgettable experience!

Naples fashion is a special one among the “moda Italiana”: come with us and discover the Neapolitan style! Let us take you to less known boutiques and craftsmen shops in Naples to find the best dresses, suits, ties, shoes, bags, jewels and more…only for connoisseurs!

Let us be your tour guides!

Let us first read your wishes and needs and advise you properly, so to be sure we will “tailor” the best suit on you.


We asked Simona to do a private tour for us of Naples and Ischia based on the books My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante. It was a wonderful tour and Simona was very nice to tour with, even taking us to the more risky areas of Naples and places off the regular path. She made us all feel very comfortable and relaxed. The trip to Ischia was fantastic. Simona was flexible and willing to alter the plan as we went along based on our desires. Mary Jo Z, Canada

We were a group of 10 people. Simona picked us up at the cruise port at 8:00 and we had a wonderful day with her touring Amalfi Coast, Positano, Sorrento and Pompeii. She was knowledgeable and interesting. Even recommend certain local products to take home. Very punctual at every stop so no need to worry about getting back to the ship on time. Highly recommend Simona. It was our best day of the whole cruise. Asandy, Los Angeles, USA

We are a family of 5 who booked a full day of touring with Simona in Pompeii and to the imperial villa in Oplontis. Simona and her driver picked us up at the train station in Napoli (we were staying in Rome) and returned us there in the afternoon. We had a fun and interesting day with Simona. She is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and pleasant and extended our visit in Pompeii to give us enough time to see everything we wanted. It was fascinating to hear her tell about both Pompeii and Oplontis, and we learned a lot. We highly recommend Simona’s services. AnMeG, Oslo, Norway

We were a group of friends who had asked Simona to organize tours of the area. Simona has a great personality – blends in naturally and contributes with her sweet being and personality. She sent us excellent suggestions that stretched beyond her usual guided tours and composed a fantastic versatile program that included all our desires as well as a few wonderful surprises along the way. Simona only receives praises from us. We highly recommend her service.

Our day with Simona in Naples was wonderful! Her passion for the city was contagious; we now love Naples even more. She took us on her ʻFood & Art Tourʼ to places where we had the best local pizza, pasta and desserts. She showed us remarkable street and subway art (even a Banksy) and told us the fascinating stories behind them. My husband and I spent a day with her in the city looking at architecture, art, eating and talking. Her knowledge of historic and modern Naples and many other topics made that day, the best day of our quick trip to Italy. Simona’s communication with us before and during the tour was perfect; she is smart, funny, flexible, and gracious. Thanks Simona! Sue-n-Flo. USA
