Once the delicious pizza comes out of the wood oven, you'll relax and enjoy it alongside a glass of Chianti wine or a cold beer.

    This class was amazing! Everything from the food and wine, to the company of the instructors was excellent. When you arrive you are greeted with a glass of wine and homemade focaccia! Max, Tony, and T are amazing! They were so kind and eager to help. They are all also very funny and we’re making everyone laugh the whole time! Max made us a special sorbet that was to die for! Tony and T showed us step-by-step how to make the perfect pizza dough and how to spin the dough! We even get to keep the recipes from today! I can’t rave enough about this experience!!

    This tour was simply the highlight of our vacation. It was perfect in every respect. From the guide who checked us in, to the bus driver who brought us safely to the location, to Cris who met us there in the hills above Florence and explained the process, to making our own ice cream and pizza with Cris, Tiziano and Thomas. The location is beautiful, at the beginning we had a welcome drink and a small appetizer and we were allowed to harvest some ingredients fresh from the garden. After that, the ice cream was made first. Then, Tiziano and Thomas introduced us to the art of pizza making with a lot of expertise and wit. The whole time it was relaxed, humorous and just insanely fun. The team is great and made this day very special. A thousand thanks Cris, Tiziano and Thomas for this unforgettable experience!

    Wow! Just finished a 16 day tour of Europe and this experience was the fan favorite amongst our 7 people ranging in age from 8-76. I was worried that our kids wouldn't love it but the fast pace and movement back and forth between stages kept the attention of everyone with all smiles. These guys are witty and entertaining and we will absolutely be rushing back when we return to Florence hopefully in the near future with the other set of grandparents. Side note, at the suggestion of other reviewers I brought bug spray but didn't use it since I didn't see/feel the bugs. The next day everyone had some bites so use it anyway! I think I may have seen some sitting out for people to use but not totally sure that's what it was. Nothing to really be concerned about but if you remember...use it! :-)
