Hi, my name is Maria Sannino and I am a graduate in Foreign Languages.
I am a qualified tourist guide, tour leader and interpreter. I hold a license to lead groups in English, Italian, Japanese and Spanish which I fluently speak.
I also have some elementary knowledge of German and French.
I have a wide experience as an ambassador of my own country which, I think, I know reasonably well.
I started working as a qualified tourist guide in 2002 and since then I guided more that 90.000 people around the Campania region to see the most remarkable locations, hidden paths and off the beaten track places.
I have been working for the most important tour operators and travel agencies, as well as for several private customers.
I am committed to responsible travel. I love and respect nature and monuments. I am enthusiastic and passionate about my job and I like to share my knowledge with customers coming from all over the world, as if they were part of my family and friends. My tours are always interactive and entertaining as well as informative but fun.
I am entitled to skip the lines at museums, galleries and archaeological sites, a valuable advantage when visiting crowded attractions.
