Hi, this is Riccardo. I've got a tour guide license in Italy in 2018. I graduated with a degree in foreign languages, I won 2 European grants in Spain, so in 2011/2012 I studied in Madrid a Master in teaching a foreign language. I've also did one school year in Greece, thanks to another European grant. I have worked at the tourist information offices of Bari and Madrid. I teach Italian in Spain, and Spanish and/or English in Italy. I love mediterranean food and I enjoy giving tour guides in Madrid and in south Italy, to share my passion for history and culture.

The tour with Riccardo was very enjoyable. I am also with Guruwalk in Budapest as a guide, so as someone familiar with walking tours (14+ years of experience, full-time) I would recommend a bit more structuring, such as a short introduction of the city, a history of Italy, food, drink, public transport, taxi, boats, religion, demographics etc. Definitely LESS legends related to the Catholic Church and its saints and their miracles! At the end, we and another customer went for a friendly talk in a bar. Recommended.

Riccardo planificó una visita a lo largo del casco viejo. Además de seleccionar los puntos fundamentales que ver, añadió a la visita una completa historia de Bari y de cada sitio por el que pasamos. Además de oportunidades de probar su gastronomía tipica. Disfruté mucho de esta visita.

Interesante recorrido histórico del Bari medieval a través de los monumentos y rincones más emblemáticos del casco antiguo de la ciudad. Enriquecido con una entretenida narrativa que incluye anécdotas e historias curiosas que lo hacen más ameno además del humor entrañable de Riccardo.
