Our tour of the Archaeological Museum was eminently satisfying. Fiorenza grew up in the area and has both personal and academic knowledge of the region. She directed our attention to various significant objects in the museum- items which had come from Egypt, the Etruscan region, etc - explaining in depth their construction and use, and offering enormous amounts of insight into the lives of ancient Romans in the process. I felt very well prepared to visit Pompeii the next day. My only regret was that we had not booked Fiorenza to accompany us there. Next time!
Fiorenza is special. Ask for her by name.
After visiting Pompeii we wanted to see all the art and statuary that was removed for preservation. But it is one thing to look and read all the signs and another to have a tour guide explain to you the meaning and history of each piece. This really brought Pompeii to life unlike any tour we have had. The artifacts were now real and the stories put in context the uniqueness of the situation. Our guide was not only knowledgeable, she was an art historian who could place each piece in context with history. We had a private tour and that really made a difference as we were able to ask questions and get detailed answers without the distract of a large group needing to move on to the next exhibit.
Thank you Maria for a very interesting tour. I learned so much about ancient roman society looking at those artifacts... Not to miss!
