The class starts in Piazza Santo Spirito, approximately 10 minutes' walk from the Ponte Vecchio.

This was by far our favorite thing we did in our entire Italy trip! The class was well organized, fun, and DELICIOUS!! My husband and I learned so much about how to make great pasta and sauces. We can’t wait to try the recipes at home.

- Liz N (TripAdvisor review)

I had such a wonderful time! As a solo traveler it was hard finding cooking classes that didn’t require 2 or more people to sign up in order to attend, so it was awesome to find one I could join! I adore cooking and all things Italian food and I would have to say, this class was perfect for cooks and non cooks alike.
