Our fabulous guide, Isabelle, took our small group to some of the coolest foodie places in Florence. Everything was covered from high end grocery and chocolate to the amazing Sant' Ambrogio Market. We never would have experienced these spots if it weren't for Isabelle's knowledge. Highly recommended.

I very much enjoyed this local market and walking tour. Luca is an excellent and considerate guide with lots of interesting historical tidbits to share. The amount of food was just right - decadent to be sure but not so much that I didn't want to eat anything else for the rest of the day. Getting away from the tourist... More

We were lucky to have our guide Isabella all to ourselves on this tour due to a no show from others. Isabella was fabulous, full of local knowledge and extremely warm and friendly. We had planned a picnic lunch after the tour but had no need once we finished the awesome tasting of every Florentine delicacy at Mercato Centrale!

I participated in a Small Group Foodies Tour in Florence with Luca as the tour guide. The other group participants were not especially enthusiastic during the tour, nevertheless, Luca remained energetic and upbeat. He took us to 4-5 different eateries/wine establishments and all were quite good. I have got to mention that I am 62 years old and have always... 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.
