Naples
My story

What can a doctor of physical and mathematical Sciences full scientific results do once she gets bored? Sure, she will change her life completely, leaving a successful career at a University, colleagues and friends and migrate to another country. Thus a person who has been deeply fond of the history of the Roman Empire since her childhood, a person, who adores mythology and Renaissance painting, finds herself in sharing her passion with those who visit the country named Magnificent Italy. I will show you the Emerald island of Ischia with its wonderful bays, ancient castle and thermal parks, the suburb of Naples Pozzuoli with its Flavio amphitheater which is the oldest in Italy and the house where the young Sophia Loren lived as well as Amalfi with its majestic Cathedral of St. Andrew and the handmade paper Museum, and a lot of other sightseeing. We also won’t forget cozy restaurants with traditional cuisine, where you are met by a friendly owner who gladly cooks for you

What do I do here?

Once a sage man said that if you do what you love, it's not a work, it's a pleasure. Thus my happiness is that I’ve never worked at all. I've always done what I love. First it was teaching and scientific activities, and now it is private tours and also teaching, but in addition to mathematics, it is also Philology - Russian and English. I am living the second life that is completely different from the first, but it is not less beautiful. I’ve experienced both the felicity of scientific achievements and the joy of touching the ancient walls of an ancient castle by my own hand, a surge of emotions deeply in my soul every time I was coming up the lectern at the beginning of a lecture and unconscious excitement before each meeting with new tourists for the next tour. All these emotions are different and dissimilar, but fusing together in my soul, they create a Symphony called HAPPINESS. And I want to share this happiness with you

What's the best of my city?

My island is a fairy tale come true, everything here is beautiful and amazing-the narrow streets of ancient towns on the coast, an ancient castle inextricably connected with the names of Victoria Colonna and Michelangelo Buonarotti, magnificent bays and panoramic terraces, the beauty of which conquers from the first sight, the Cup of Nestor in a small archaeological Museum, whose age (2500 years) causes admiration, thermal parks that are tempting to plunge into the thermal waters which are the unique natural wealth of the island. And the mainland that is right nearby to the island is a real treasury of cultural heritage, because His Majesty Naples with its numerous museums, the Amalfi coast, called the Divine coast and numerous archaeological parks are situated there. Everyone will find something to do on his taste here, whether it is visiting museums, archaeological sites, old streets, shops or traditional restaurants that have preserved their identity for years and centuries.

My tours secret sauce

I am not a professional guide, I just love this land, this sky and this sea, these temples, palaces and archaeological parks, and I want to gift you this beautiful land, its history and traditions. Moreover, the best thing you can bring from a trip is memories that are rising from the depths of your memory when you look at photos and cute Souvenirs. A day on the Emerald island of Ischia or on the Neapolitan coast can be a day of museums, or a day of relaxation and SPA, or a day of walking through ancient cathedrals and palaces, or a day filled with sea and sun during a walk along the coast, or a day of delicious gastronomic sensations – everything is up to you. And I am here to make this day unforgettable for you. Just contact me.
