Florence and Pistoia
I am Michela Ricciarelli, certified tour guide.
Born in Pistoia, a hidden gem between Firenze and Lucca, I live and I explore Tuscany everyday with passion.
As a private tour guide, I will make you feel like home, walking through the streets, eating as a local, for an immersive travel experience available in Italian and English. We will discover the culture and the traditions of a territory that is important in the world for art, fashion and good cooking. A fairytale place.

It's not just a journey,
come and experience Tuscany
During our guided walks, you will explore the beauties of Florence and Pistoia: many historical buildings, open-air sculptures, fascinating sights and secret spots. A customized private tour in the heart of the cities.
Traditions are the best way to get in touch with locals and reveal so much about a culture. That is why I propose a special tour to experience the real Italian atmosphere
Uffizi Gallery, Academia Gallery, Palazzo Pitti are some of the most famous museums in the world. You will admire the masterpieces of Renaissance and learn more about Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, Caravaggio and other artists.
Food is an expression of Italian identity. I will show you the Tuscan specialties prepared by local producers. We will drink good wine in our wineries and we will taste cappuccino and gelato in the historical bars. The best ways to savor the genuine side of Italy.

“I was lucky enough to find Michela when I was planning a friend’s wedding in Tuscany in 2007. She helped me so much then and is still my favorite Italian discovery! She always has something new and interesting to offer. She is very easy to work with and is just a delightful person to be around. And I am happy to count her as a dear friend as well as my preferred Tuscany Tour Guide!”
