Ybor City Tours

Ybor City

Known for over a century as Tampa's Latin Quarter, Ybor City is a sumptuous feast for the senses. Founded in the 1880s by Vincente Martinez-Ybor as a cigar-manufacturing center, the neighborhood welcomed thousands of immigrants, mainly from Spain, Cuba, and Italy, over the next 50 years.

Today, the neighborhood is one of Florida's most distinct cultural landmarks. While strolling down its narrow brick streets, allow your senses to take in the sights, sounds, and smells that give the area its unique flavor. Enjoy the various ethnic foods, relax with a cup of cafe con leche as you people watch, and allow the Latin music that wafts down the streets at night to sweep over you. With such a vibrant culture, Ybor City is both perfect for a daytime stroll and known as one of Florida's hottest night spots. Its red brick buildings and wrought iron balconies offer an escape into old warm charm, away from Florida's strip malls and beaches. It is one of only two National Historic Landmark Districts in Florida.
