Raffaele is a brilliant guide! Engaging, knowledgeable and full of enthusiasm and love for Naples. I love Naples, it’s a very special place, and I wish he had been the guide on my visit there 4 years ago. We did the same walk, but I learnt much more with Raffaele. On that tour I hadn’t even noticed the bronze skulls outside the Chiesa del Purgatorio, and we didn’t’ see inside the beautiful churches that Raffaele showed us. And the graffiti are amazing. (My favourite graffito from my trip - “la vita è troppo strana” - “life is too strange”). We just needed Pino Daniele’s Napul’è playing softly in the background! Grazie mille, Raffaele!

tours are great ... I know he says it's historical, but I find the massive amount of graffiti distracting and it takes away from everything he's pointing out ... but I keep going back, so I guess it isn't all that bad
