We took the kids to the pizza and gelato making course on our last evening in Florence. Had we been there longer we would definitely have booked with FLorencetown again. The demonstrators/course leaders were both really enthusiastic, knowledgeable and kind. They were just lovely and inclusive to all. Everyone was made to feel a great sense of achievement from oldies... More

We booked this on short notice and lucked out with it being only 4 people in the class. We were met at the FlorenceTown office location by Chef Davide and walked over to the Market. Davide did a phenomenal job of explaining the 'typical Tuscan' cuisine and some local favorites. Davide was engaging and full of great information. From the... More

We did this tour with Davide last night - such a delightful experience! He was very professional and we had a small group of 4 which made for a more intimate experience. We all got to have a go at contributing to making gelato, and learning about pizza dough and kneading it was so interesting and fun! Plus, it was... More

I signed up for the Renaissance walking tour run by FlorenceTown via the British Airways website, based on other reviews. At first I was a little worried as it turned out that I was the only person on the tour party! However, the guide, Sibille, was not phased at all and was very friendly and very knowledgeable. We covered the... More

Beautiful Florence. We walked lots and saw many views. Many churches to visit. Went into the Duomo but not to the top as needed to book.

There is so much to see and do in Florence, from the many architecturally impressive buildings to the art to shopping, that carefully planning time is essential. If you don't, you run the risk of missing out on seeing something!

I joined a Florencetown "VIP" tour of Siena, Lucca, and Pisa, along with lunch at a Tuscan winery. We had an excellent tour guide for Siena, and a competent driver, but there was no guide whatsoever for the other locations. We were just put out of the car and told to walk around until the driver picked us up. The... More

Extremely entertaining activity for the whole family!! I stongly recomend it to every tourist as you not only get to learn how to cook, but also get a guide who knows a lot about the town. We were extremely lucky to get Davide: he has a great sense of humour, very fun and interesting to talk to. Moreover, he suggested... More

I did the walk and talk tour today, and it was great. My guide, Francesca, knew so much about the history of Florence. She gave me lots of information about the buildings, the Medici family and the general history of Florence. Not only a knowledgeable guide but also a friendly person and it didn't feel like a typical tour, it... 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.
