While in Naples, Italy, in September ’13, my husband, Peter, and I had the privilege of having Dr. Piña Esposito (phone +39 366 6228217 or +39 338 7634224 or email annamariaesposito1@virgilio.it) as our guide. We got her name from Rick Steves’ Italy guide and contacted her two weeks before our trip.

Dr. Esposito, who has degrees in Archaeology and Art History, can be hired for a period of two, three or five hours. We decided on five hours, paying 270 (near $365).

Half of our time was spent in the National Archaeological Museum of Naples and half in the historic Old Town. We thought having her as a guide was well worth the money, as the museum is huge and one could wander for days looking at the treasures of Pompeii and Herculaneum.

Dr. Esposito’s English is excellent, and she also does tours of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento and Capri.
