I'm a young philosophy and history teacher, deeply in love with the rich culture and languages of the Nordic countries. After immersing myself in Sweden for eight amazing years, studying history in Uppsala, and teaching for three, I've almost become an expert on this enchanting region. Since 2023, I've been sharing my knowledge and enthusiasm with curious travelers like you.

Tour description

Uppsala is an elegant Swedish town a few kilometers from Stockholm. The city hosts one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in the world , the largest cathedral in Northern Europe (119m high, more than the cathedral of Florence) and the famous silver Bible in the Carolina Rediviva university library. Uppsala is also the birthplace of notable academics and scientists such as Anders Celsius, Dag Hammarskjöld, Carl Linnaeus and the famous director Ingmar Bergman . In this tour I will tell you about the history of the city in relation to Swedish history and I will take you to know the corners of this little gem. The tour includes an external visit to the castle, the botanical gardens of Carl von Linneaus, the Linneanum, Gustavianum, Carolina Rediviva and above all an internal visit to the Cathedral!

Abbiamo fatto questo tour guidato in italiano di Uppsala perché affascinati dalla cultura vichinga e dalla città universitaria. Le nostre aspettative sono state super soddisfatte, la guida era preparata, simpatica e molto alla mano, impostato tutto come un colloquio con tante domande e risposte e curiosità più che il solito tour dove solo la guida parla, ci siamo sentiti come a casa!
