Transfer by minibus to a private estate situated in the hills above Florence. Start your culinary experience with a tasting of a traditional focaccia appetizer accompanied by a glass of Chianti wine. Soak in views of the rolling hills as your instructor shares the backstory of Italy's famous foods: pizza and gelato.

Next your chef-instructor shows you how to make pizza dough, and explains regional variations. After preparing the dough, select the topping ingredients that you like from the assortment of fresh vegetables harvested from the estate gardens. Your pizza is then baked traditional-style in the wood oven. When ready, sit down to enjoy your pizza accompanied by wine or beer.

For dessert, learn to make a creamy gelato that can be accompanied by toppings and sauces. Your instructor provides recipes for the pizza and gelato so that you can make them at home.

Tiziano, Thomas and Max are wonderful chefs who taught us a lot about pizza dough and gelato making. We enjoyed our class so much we bought a gelato maker and my son wants to buy a pizza oven! The view from the farm house is amazing and I highly recommend this class for all ages. This was one our most memorable experiences in Italy.

This was a great experience. Learning how to make gelato and fresh pizza was amazing. The only complaint was the heat - it was 90 degrees out. I would recommend putting in fans or misting for outside. The pizza was delicious and view was fantastic and wine/beer was perfecto.

We LOVED this experience. From the greeting and tour of the farm, to the focaccia and wine welcome, to the chance to make our own gelato and pizza. Max and Thomas as well as Demetrius were entertaining and kind. It was probably one of our favorite experiences as a family in Florence!

It was wonderful! We would definitely do it again and will look for similar experiences in other cities. Chris, Thomas, and Tetzino? Gave great explanations as to the process of gelato and pizza making that even the kids could understand. So much fun!

This tour on our trip was one of the best! Arla, Thomas and Chris were so fun and taught us so much! We learned how to toss our pizza dough, make sauce from scratch as well as the dough! The gelato was so delicious. Everyone got to make different flavors and we were able to try them all! Plus wine with the most fabulous setting and views! This is one you don't want to miss!

What a wonderful tour, my 10 year old granddaughter loved every minute! We started with a brief bus ride outside of the city to a beautiful estate. We were greeted by a gentleman who was extremely knowledgeable about the garden and the experience we were about to have. As we walked through the garden, he selected vegetables and spices for use on the pizzas and gelatos. We then learned about the different types of gelatos and selected our recipes. We worked in pairs and prepared our mix. While the gelato was chilling, we went to the pizza station and learned how to make pizza. After the pizzas were made, we sat down to quite a feast! Everyone enjoyed their own personalized pizza and were able to sample all of the gelatos that were made by the group. My favorite was a gelato made from cucumber! The instructor added some toppings that enhanced the flavor of the various selections. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone.

This cooking class was amazing! It's a quick trip outside the city but you feel like you've escaped into the Tuscan countryside. Thomas, Tiziano, and Gloria were so fun and entertaining as we learned about making and ate lots of pizza and gelato! We initially looked at a pasta-making class as my husband had done one in Florence before and he thought this was way better!
