Though many come to Florence to see the art, the architecture and historic sites which have changed the course of history several times over, it is without a doubt wine and food which linger in their memory when they go home.

If you are looking for a cooking class in Florence, you have found the right opportunity. This hands-on class will take place in the historic center of the Tuscan city and may include a guided food and wine tour through Florence's historic food markets.

A classical Tuscan meal in the heart of Florence

Florence Tour has an exclusive opportunity for guests to meet with the locals and become apart of creating a classical Tuscan meal in the heart of Florence with the aim of teaching Tuscan traditions of food & wine.

The experience is more than just learning how to cook the family recipes but a moment in the day of a real Florentine family! Where Paola herself and sometimes Allegra, her daughter,  is helping her out too.

Gather in the family home, just a short walk from the historic center, roll up your sleeves and risk a bit of flour in your hair as you make a full meal together with your hostess.

The 'Florence Cooking Class' menu consists of 4 courses, which you will savor at the end of the 3-hours preparation

There will be classical Tuscan appetizers, an entertaining hands-on handmade pasta, a main course with vegetables and everyone’s favorite dessert: Tiramisu!  Of course, the meal is accompanied by wine, bread, and coffee.

This is one the best ways to create lasting memories of Florence and building lifelong friendship – over a plate of ravioli and a red Chianti Classico wine glass.

This is can be a kid-friendly cooking class too since this a private one and we can customize the class at every request.

There is the extra possibility to add a visit at the local Mercato Centrale in San Lorenzo area of Sant’ Ambrogio food market  and to purchase vegetable, cheese, meet with Paola  and to get to know the local producers.

Check out Paola availability and book your cooking class as soon as you can.
