Private tour guide Riccardo

Riccardo L.

Firenze, Tuscany, Italy

Hello dear travelers! My name is RICCARDO and I'm a young QUALIFIED TOUR GUIDE of FLORENCE!

I was born and raised in a little village next to Florence and since I was a child I got fascinated by the BEAUTIES of this city.
At the age of 16 I deeply fell in love with FOREIGN LANGUAGES so I obtained a bachelor's degree in Foreign Languages and Literature at the University of Florence and had several experiences studying and/or working abroad (6 months studying in Madrid, Spain, 3 months working in Brighton, England, 4 months traveling around South America, and 2 years teaching Spanish and studying for a master's degree at Florida State University, Tallahassee, Florida), thanks to which I can now speak fluently 4 LANGUAGES: Italian, English, Spanish and Portuguese.
Eventually, I decided to settled down back in FLORENCE where I started working as Tour Leader, Freelance translator, Private Spanish and English tutor, and from July 2016, I became Certified Tour Guide of Florence, which allows me to do what I LOVE the most: SHOW the beauties of my town to PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD!

My goal is one: to MAKE YOUR DAY SPECIAL!!

I'll SHARE MY KNOWLEDGE about Florence with you in a FRIENDLY MANNER while giving my best SUGGESTIONS about the BEST COFFEE, GELATO, or RESTAURANT of Florence!

I'm an EASYGOING person passionate about ART, HISTORY, PHOTOGRAPHY, our amazing FOOD culture, and I love to spend time in the middle of the NATURE, hiking around the beautiful Florentine hills.

The tours that I offer here are just EXAMPLES of what we could ORGANIZE TOGETHER according to your NEEDS and PASSIONS.
The PRICE of each of my tours is PER GROUP, not per person, which means that from 1 to 8 clients (or more) the cost is always the SAME!
In case transportation is needed I can arrange LUXURY RIDES with private drivers for a CONVENIENT PRICE.

Credentials

December 2010 - Bachelor's degree in Foreign Languages and Litterature (University of Florence, Florence, Italy)
May 2014 - Master's degree in Linguistics (Florida State University, Tallahassee, USA)
July 2016 - Certified Tour guide License (Florence, Italy)
April 2017 - First level of Sommelier certificate (Florence, Italy)

Restrictions

I'm not a driver. I can accompany you in your vehicle or I can arrange for a separate car and driver.
I'm not permitted to guide in the Portuguese language - only Italian, English and Spanish.
