In this paper, we present an approach to exploit Linked Data in Smart Spaces, doing more than just using RDF to represent information. In particular, we rely on knowledge stored in DBpedia, a dataset in the Web of Data. We also provide a platform to implement such an approach and a eTourism use case, both developed in collaboration with a mobile operator. Finally, we provide also a performance evaluation of the main component of the platform.
