Alice: Fiorella, what is FABULOUS to you?

Fiorella: for me fabulous is a day in Naples amongst art, mystery, beauty, people and food!


Fiorella Squillante I specialised in the art, history and culture of my hometown Naples. I studied modern languages with modern art and I have worked closely with the museums in Naples, the Friends of Museums from Abroad and as an educational consultant and a tour guide for many years. I love writing about my city and have written a guide to Neapolitan art and architecture called Naples in 3 Days and articles about Naples and Campania. My love for Naples art, food and why not….its fabulous craziness means there isn’t a corner of the city I haven’t visited. This blog is a way to share insider tips with you.

Alice Venessa Bever I’ve always been a centro storico woman. When I came to Naples with a backpack and a folded paper with the names of English schools, I had no idea that sixteen years later I would have an extensive knowledge of Neapolitan theatre, culture, history and where to find the perfect Spritz. I have a dual degree in Italian Studies and Theatre and Dramatic Literature,I am a singer and performer, an English teacher and translator, and a Neapolitanphyte who knows how to live in and out of chaos without compromising the things that make living in Naples fabulous.


We have a mutual passion for Naples, the city where we both live and are ready to share it with you!

    Buongiorno Alice and Fiorella,
    I will be bringing clients to Naples from June 30 until July 3 and would be interested in scheduling a half day walking tour, perhaps related to food
    or the underground Naples tour.
    We are a group of 3 adults and twin girls, age 13. This will be their first time in Naples.
    As far as a hotel location, we will be staying either in Chiaia or the Centro Storico.

    Can you please let me know what you might have available? Thanks so much!

    Ciao Fiorella,

    I just wanted to reach out to you and thank you for the incredible day we had in Napoli . We thoroughly enjoyed the adventures and unique interesting historical places we visited. Your knowledge of Napoli and its history were exemplary. Meeting some of your friends and local contacts along the way made the trip to Napoli so memorable and enjoyable. We as a group really felt the local vibe and history of this city on our tour for which we are very grateful !!!! The crème de la crème was that I actually was able to make a Margarita pizza in the city and birthplace of the original pizza. How cool is that ? Thanks again for making our memorable visit to Napoli one that will last a lifetime.

    Grazie mille, Nicola, Thanuja, Gina and Dave 🙂

    I would say without any doubt that one of the most exciting experiences in life was going around Naples with Fiorella. Unforgettable and Fabulous! Grazie


    Again, thanks for being the best guide during our trip 9 years ago to Napoli! We are going to be in Rome from April 7th thru the 10th, 2022. Do you do tours there? If so we(4) would love for you to show us around. Then we are headed to Florence for a month. Know anyone there?

    I am planning a trip to Naples in October 2021.
    approximately 3 days.
    Can you recommend a private guide?
    I am primarily interested in art and antiquities.
    Thank you.

    Ciao! I just took a wonderful Context Conversations course with you, Fiorella. Brava! Well done. I am planning a small group trip to Rome and Naples, hopefully in the fall of 2021 when we can travel again. I would love to stay connected with you about the possibility of doing 3 days of private tours with my group. More details to come, of course, but I am certain that you are the right person to introduce us to the city that you love. Grazie mille, Paige Goodpasture

    A close friend (friend’s daughter) is a Navy JAG and is going to be stationed in Naples for 2 years. She’s 35 and chose international law because she loves travel and has been all over the world.
    We would like to set her up with a day tour in and around Naples.

    After visiting most major historic cities in Italy, we decided to see Napoli. In September we were there and stayed at a lovely hotel Palazzo Alabardieri. We went to old town Napoli and walked through the very old narrow streets and enjoyed the atmosphere. Napoli is as lovely as any other Italian city. One thing in Napoli that can’t be missed is the wood oven baked pizza. Delicioso !!!
    While discovering the streets of old town, we came across the bust of Pulcinella. It’s a unique Napolitan character created by Silvio Fiorillo in 1620. This character has been used by famous composers such as Igor Stravinky “Ballet Pulcinella”, Sergei Rachmaninoff piano piece Polichinelle, Charles Aznavour in a song “Mon ami, mon Judas”.
    We then met Fiorella and spent a fantastic day with her at Pompeii and Herculaneum. A very enthusiastic and very knowledgeable guide.
    A must see is also the Naples Archeologic Museum. Best of Pompeii and Herculaneum mosaics, amazing glassware and frescoes are preserved there.
    Naples is a fabulous must see and experience city in Italy.
    Thank You Fiorella !!!
