What people are saying about Lupanare

We had a great day today with Nancy and Carmine! It was great to hear about some of the history on our way to the tours, and Nancy was so lovely as she kept us mining through the day! Pompeii was so amazing to learn about and see, Alessio, our Pompei tour guide, was so informative and fun, and Vesuvius was a moderate to hard walk up - and well worth it! Finally, the lunch with wine was a three course meal and three tastings - a great way to end the day! Thanks Nancy and Carmine!

Our driver Francesco was great and the pick ups and drop offs /meeting points were very good. It was brilliant to have Michele the archeologist who has worked on both sites. He was an excellent guide full of terriffic anecdotes and the whole trip was fabulous. We have very many happy memories. It was nice to be in a small group of historical and cultural enthusiasts.
