It was a lovely cooking course and ended up just the 2 of us with our chef in her house. It was a good evening and cooked yummy meals which we then ate with Paola.

I have traveled to Italy in the past, but my husband has not. I wanted to do something different while we were in Florence. I'm glad I booked with Antonella, she was fun and taught us how to cook pasta! Her family was kind, and...More

We were made very welcome. Francesca has a beautiful home, minutes from the Duomo in Florence, easy to find, and with an amazing view from her kitchen window. We loved the food and we'll definitely be cooking it when we get home to New Zealand....More

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
