    Thanks to our guide Lorenzo we really enjoyed in Copodimonte Museum.

    Thanks to our guide Lorenzo we really enjoyed our visit to magnificent Capodimonte Museum. Lorenzo did a great job. He gave us an overview of history of Napoli, museum and Bourbon family. In two hours he showed us all most important arts. He gave very detail answers to all our questions. Thank you Lorenzo!

    Very informative and considerate.

    We were impressed by the guide's knowledge of art and ancient history, by his capacity to select from art works in the museum and relate to works in other collections and connection with historical context. He was a genuine and sensitive person and obviously passionate about his subject and city. We were very comfortable under his guidance and would have no hesitation in recommending him to other visitors to Naples.

    nicht zu empfehlen

    enttäuschend, der Guide wurde wegen Krankheit kurzfristig ausgewechselt, sie kannte nicht die neue Ordnung der Bilder und suchte ständig nach bestimmten Bildern. Die Führung hatte keine Ordnung, es ging wild hin und her. Der Guide hatte Jura studiert und man merkte, dass sie nur allgemein angelernte Informationen hatte, jedoch keine tiefer gehenden, wie ich es für eine solch teure Führung erwartet hätte.
