Learn your way around a Tuscan kitchen…

If you’re looking for a break from sightseeing, our Florence pizza and gelato making class is a fun, family-friendly way to experience real Italian culture away from the crowds. We take you south of the Arno river to Oltrarno – an old bohemian neighbourhood full of artisan studios, hidden bars and family-run restaurants. There you’ll meet a professional chef who’ll show you how to make pizza, gelato and other delicious baked goods like a local. 

Roll up your sleeves and discover how to prepare the perfect pizza base. Then create two delicious gelato flavours using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Once you’ve finished, you’ll sit down to eat with your cooking companions and enjoy the fruits of your labour with a well-earned glass of Prosecco or soft drink of your choice. There’s even time to enjoy our garden terrace.

Join us for this family-friendly pizza and gelato making class set in the easygoing Oltrarno neighbourhood. You’ll see another side to the city, share your time with like-minded people, and learn practical techniques to impress your dinner guests back home.

Beatrice was full of stories on our walking food tour. The foods (and drinks) were interesting and part of the good memories of our time in Florence. Meeting some of the shop owners made it very authentic. Thanks!

I’m recommending this tour to everyone and take it at the beginning of your trip to help with not only where to eat, but most importantly how to eat! Thank you again Beatrice it was a great experience. Bon Appetite!

Awesome experience! Highly recommend. Great for families as well. We have done several Eating Europe tours in other cities and they never disappoint.
