Tour No 2 with Raffaele and the views and detailed information just kept coming! Such an engaging person with great knowledge and personal anecdotes thrown in as well. We were taken down narrow roads where most tourists don't go, again with lots of details. Thank you, Raffaele for another great tour. Can't wait for the next two - already signed up for them!! See you again then.

I enjoyed the tour very very much. The guide provided excellent information regarding the site, the lifestyle in the city before the eruption and the fall out of the eruption.
