This was by far one of the best mornings spent wandering the markets and Delis in Florence. Not only did Linda share a great love of food but her enthusiasm was terrific and clearly had a wonderful relationship with all the deli owners. Not to be missed if you are planning a food tour in Florence.

I had taken the cicchetti tour in Venice with Urban Adventures and loved it so much that I had to book this wine tour in Florence. Our guide was Gemma and we met up with her in the very lively piazza della Repubblica. There were just two other guests so it was a very intimate experience. We tasted delicious cream... More

Wonderful exploration of Florentine culture and food! Our guide was amazing...warm, knowledgeable, and funny. The food was delicious. I went back to many of the places for the remainder of my trip in order to sample some more delicacies and bring some home too!

There are so many reasons I loved this tour. First our guide, Luca Russo, was so personable and informative. Second, we visited wine bars that I would never have even noticed, and then, as it always is, the food! Each wine was paired with a tapas. The tour is small and I enjoyed visiting with those in my group. This... More

Nice tour guide, went to 4 places, walked through the city. I was starving afterwards though! Mainly because I do not eat meat. I think they can improve on options for guests and offer more locations for the price we paid. Received a cafe, little bit of cheese, meat, small gelato.

Dear Vegas Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am shocked to hear you were starving afterwards even though our Foodies Tour is not a lunch nor a dinner as it starts at 3.00pm and ends at 05.30pm. There are loads of options for vegetarians on our walks they include truffles, cheese - pecorino, parmigiano, mozzarella,... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
