We attended a late afternoon cooking school run by Phillippo, our charming chef/teacher. We learned how to make pizza and gelato in a well appointed and centrally located kitchen. Phillippo spoke very good English, was very knowledgeable and made our lesson very fun. We had a lovely meal at the end and enjoyed meeting the other participants. We would definitely... More

I read the book as preparation for my visit in Florence. When I heard that there is also a tour available which follows the steps of Robert Langdon I booked it. When I arrived at the meeting point to meet the friendly and knowledgeable Federica, I just learned that I was the only participant. So this was a very private... More

After a dissapointing experience with another tour company we booked with these guys for their Pizza and Gelato making class. David and Guisseppe were great instructors. They even allowed our 5yo to be chef's assistant with the gelato making. The finished pizzas and gelato were excellent with a glass of chianti. We were so impressed with how simple and easy... More

Walk & Talk Florence - In the Steps of the Medicis (25 Euro per person) Totally worth it! Fredericka, our guide, is a knowledgable art historian and local to the Tuscany region. The tour is in Engligh (but your guide will be multilingual if you have questions.) You meet at the FlorenceTown office in the center of town and set... More

We booked two tours with FlorenceTown - the Accademia Gallery Tour which took about 1,5 hours and the Uffizi Gallery tour which took about 3 hours. Both tours were fantastic and so were our guides. For the Accademia Gallery we had Marzia as a guide and for the Uffizi Gallery our guide was Giulia. Marzia and Giulia were wonderful. They... More

We took a market tour and cooking class with Florence Town. It was a fun way to spend 4+ hours. Our instructor made it all very easy, and we left feeling that we could actually replicate the recipes at home. This is not a course for someone who wants an in depth learning experience, but if you'd like to make... More

My dad (retired) and I booked the small group walking tour of Florence called "On the Medici's Footsteps". It turned out that we were the only two on the tour that day so we had a very conversational experience with our wonderful guide Francesca. The tour took us through all the highlights of this lovely city, and Francesca shared her... 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.
