Excellent ! Good organization à la Napoitaine which is part of the experience but everything is done with a smile. Our guide, Stefano, was just perfect. Impeccable French, passionate and defender of the site! He immersed us in the history of the city with facts, anecdotes and lots of humor. 2 hours of site is good and short at the same time. We stayed 5 hours more with my 15 year old son. An unforgettable day !
