Meet Alessandra Desiderio

Alessandra Desiderio

Alessandra is an art historian! Since she was a child, she loved art in all its forms and I transformed this great passion into a profession by becoming a licensed tourist guide. You have taken part as an art historian in many cultural projects in my city and have been included in the catalogue of the National Museum of Capodimonte with an intervention on a Neapolitan painting of the 600 '. Her mission is TELLING about her land through the eyes of a local scholar and guide, leading her guests to discover mysterious and unusual places, unveiling their numerous legends, all this without ever neglecting the historical and cultural aspect of the city.

I really enjoyed Alessandra's tour, I love Napoli and normally visit at least four times a year so to be able to see my favourite city live by a local is wonderful, I really enjoyed listening to Alessandra, she is lovely and speaks good English. She has excellent knowledge of her city and the history and is also very passionate about her home city. I really hope to be on another one of your tours. Thank you so much Alessanra, ciao a presto.
