Hello! My name is Giuseppe Galano.
I am an experienced TOUR GUIDE with a background and qualifications in archaeology, history, history of art and literature as well as being fluent in several major European languages. My family has arranged private tours for three generations over a period of 50 years to Pompeii and all the museums, archaeological sites of the Campania region. I was born in Lacco Ameno, on the island of Ischia in the Bay of Naples.
I attended the local high school and then continued my studies in literature and philosophy in Naples, Berlin, Oxford, Cambridge, and at the University of Salerno, receiving my doctorate in 1998 for a thesis about The Mystery of the Light in Caravaggio's Art.
I speak fluent English having attended Westminster College in Oxford 1986, 1987; the Continental School of English in Bournemouth 1991; Trinity College, Cambridge 2005 - 2006 – 2007 and Hampstead, London 2008 and 2009.
During the wintertime I have a part-time job as a University researcher in Naples and since qualifying in 2004 under Italian Government regulations I’ve been working as a guide offering personalized private guide services and guided walking tours in Pompeii to hundreds of people, whether travelling as individuals, couples or groups.
Through my work I have also appreciated the opportunity to know people from all over the world and to share my great love for this area, and the whole Italy in general, with them.
When I meet an individual, a family or a group of visitors for a tour, I try to understand straightaway the main focus of the visit and to take into account any specific request and requirement. As Professor of Art, well-known in Italy , in 1998 I spent my time giving art lectures in Italy and abroad. In addition to this, I have published a number of historical and art articles and essays about Pompeii and Naples. It is for this reason I decided to guide tours to these archaeological sites; according to individual interests, my tour of Pompeii could be the classical 2 hours tour , or 3 hours tour or more if you wish.
To assist in planning your private tour in Italy, please have a look at my suggestions and contact me so we can begin our collaboration. My aim is to try to satisfy everyone’s needs, to make your tour an unforgettable spiritual experience and to reveal the treasures of Naples and its surroundings area.
