Exploring Pompeii & Ercolano with Michele was great!
Wowza!! I’m so glad that I booked a private guide and toured these two wonderful sites off season. My guide was Michele. He was awesome and made the visit spectacular. We spent around five hours together exploring both sites and I really appreciated Michele’s thoroughness and knowledge of the subject matter. So happy to have gone with a guide vs try to figure it all out on my own.
