I am the President of Cultural Association Archèia, a nonprofit in Naples. I graduated in "Archeology and Sciences of Antiquity and the Middle Ages" with a thesis on the wall paintings of the "Villa Imperiale" of the site of Pompeii.
I worked with the Campania Region for the creation of the projects for Pompeii and Minori, I monitored the Museum of Contemporary Art in Naples, I was tour leader in the archaeological sites and at the Museum of the Certosa, and was wardrobe operator in the archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum.

This was a fabulous experience of five stars or more. Our guide today was Lucia and she was personable and knowledgeable. Her English was also quite good and we learned a lot from her tour. Even in the off season Pompeii is highly touristed. We also happen to come on the first Sunday of the month which is free, and it attracted large tour groups. That said, this special tour is geared to small groups, and for our tour we were fortunate, my husband and I, to be the only ones with Lucia. While we did not know much about Pompeii when we first arrived, Lucia gave us many options to personalize our experience. I recommend you follow her recommendations, and she took us to wonderful places and somehow managed to show us the sites when they had fewer people there. This tour has the added bonus of supporting a nonprofit focused on the work of Pompeii. Four hours may seem like a long time but actually the time went quickly and there is so much to see. Highly recommend. We’re so glad to have done this. By the way, be sure to wear flat and comfortable walking shoes. You’ll be much happier as the stones can be slippery and there are some ups and downs. After all, it’s Pompei!

We couldn’t wait to explore Pompeii and Morena was excellent about communicating with us to plan the trip. We actually had our tour with her colleague Lucia, who was knowledgeable, passionate and personable. Her love of the history of Pompeii was clear and she took the time to answer all of our questions and take us to her favorite places in the ancient city. I would 100% recommend this tour!

Our tour was with Lucia. She communicated with us prior to the trip regarding logistics and weather and everything went smoothly. The tour was perfect and exactly what we were looking for. Lucia is passionate about Pompeii and its preservation, and it really shows. She explained things well and really knows the subject matter. A number of times she suggested follow-up activities, such as visiting the National Archaeological Museum in Naples, to gain a better understanding of Pompeii (which we did upon our return to Naples on the day of our tour). If you're looking for a more in-depth dive into the everyday life of middle-class Romans than the standard 2 hour walk-around, I highly recommend this tour, and especially Lucia. It was worth every penny.

The tour provided by Archeia is exceptional. Designed to be small, I was incredibly fortunate to be the only person. Lucia was an amazing guide, providing historical context and knowledge in a way that was informative and engaging. I already had some base knowledge of Pompeii and she easily provided even greater level of details. As a nonprofit, the organization is interested in teaching about their subject, in this case Pompeii, and not just following a preset track of information. Perfecto!

We had an amazing day touring Pompeii! Lucia was the most wonderful guide and had such amazing knowledge of Pompeii, and talked about some of the small details about the Roman way of life that you wouldn't pick up on if you were going around without a guide. She was very easy to chat with and took the time to answer all of our questions and provide explanations of how to interpret different locations and sights. She also gave advice on places in Napoli to visit, which was really helpful, too.
