Thanks to our wonderful guide, Linda Sorgiovanni, the Aperitivo Tour of Florence was a highlight of our time in Italy. It felt like a night out with friends, visiting our favorite local spots, and indulging our favorite wines and appetizers. The latter were so plentiful we didn't need dinner afterwards. Linda provided a great introduction to Italian wines and local... More

I had the pleasure of going on this tour with our guide, Linda, and one other person. Perfetto! The joys of going to Florence in February!

As planned our guide Linda Sorgiovanni met us at our hotel on time, we had not been able to check in at that point. She was very accommodating and didn't mind waiting for us in the lobby. A fellow Australian, we were surprised but absolutely amazed at her in depth knowledge and passion for the history of her adopted country... More

Terrific 2.5 hour foodie tour of Florence. We had the good fortune to have Linda as our guide - very professional and as others have remarked she has a warm relationship with many of the owners of the places visited along the way. Consequently, while on the tour you very much feel like you are getting an insiders view of... More

"Florence Foodies Walk" was our first experience of Urban Adventures and, taking place immediately after we checked into our hotel, our first experience of Florence. Our guide Adrienne, a friendly art historian and sommelier, really exceeded our expectations. We had already been in Italy for two weeks of our honeymoon, so had a lot to talk about with Adrienne about... More

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

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.
