This activity will end right where it started.
Make your own way to the centrally located office to meet your professional chef-guide before your afternoon or evening tour starts. 

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.

Your culinary experience ends with a return trip to your starting point in Florence.

Absolutely AMAZING experience! Thomas, Angela and Arna were so knowledgeable, kind and fun! The entire trip, from getting to the garden to learning the chemistry, to getting to know the other classmates— priceless! Gorgeous views I couldn’t believe were only 15 minutes outside of the city. They fed us well and worth EVERY penny! Would 10/10 take again and recommend to anyone I know visiting Florence.

DO NOT MISS THIS EXPERIENCE!!!

We did this cooking class as one of the last things on our 15 day tour of Italy, which included ten other experiential events, as well. This was one of the TWO BEST tours/experiences we had, out of the eleven. There isn't enough space here for me to describe the quality and uniqueness of this cooking class. The entire team that was involved was warm, friendly, helpful, and entertaining (not to mention knowledgable). It was a lot of fun and the food was great, especially our individually designed and cooked pizzas and gelato. Did I mention the wine was also a great complement to the event and the food. This was probably the ony tour we would do again. Don't miss this one!

This was a nice escape outside the city, and it was a great experience. Thomas, Arla, and Gloria were great hosts. The farmhouse was beautiful and view was breath taking. My family enjoyed making their own pizza and gelato. We also enjoyed meeting other people that were on the tour. I highly recommend and would do this again.

Highly recommend. My husband, 20 old daughter and I had a blast making our own custom pizzas and gelato. Pizza maker, Luigi, Gelato maker Gloria weeds both fantastic. The pizza was delicious, the best we’ve ever had, and the gelato was exceptional as well. The entire excursion was a little over five hours and thoroughly enjoyable from beginning to end.

My family of 5 adults enjoyed this so very much. Gloria welcomed us and taught us how to make all different flavors of Gelato. Thomas and Arda taught us how to make pizza dough. They explained all the do’s and don’ts, along with the why!! We laughed, drank wine/beer and feasted on pizza and gelato. The farm is beautiful, overlooking Florence, like out of a movie.

Not only is this experience staged on a beautiful estate in the hills above Florence, it is absolutely first rate for content. We learned some simple techniques for pizza dough and sauce that yield amazing results. It will vastly improve our own efforts in our backyard. The drive also reveals fantastic views of Florence. The included experience of making Gelato and Sorbet is fun as well. Beautiful setting, great staff, and the pizza making was fun and informative. 5 Stars for sure.

We (two couples plus twenty four others) were picked up in a convenient location and driven in a small coach approximately 10 minutes out of Florence. On arrival we were met by Gloria who lead us to our destination - a fabulous purpose built area with spectacular views overlooking the city. We were given a choice of drink and an appetiser and then taken to our gelato making class taken by Gloria . It was both informative and great fun and by the end of the evening miraculously, with her expert knowledge, everyone had produced some gorgeous gelato! Then it was on to the amazing Thomas and Luigi who were aficionados in pizza making! They demonstrated how to make the dough for the base and then it was our turn- let’s just say they made it look simple!! The whole group were able to have a go while they came around to show, encourage and correct!! Then off we went in small groups of six to each make our own pizza and despite our worst efforts they were absolutely delicious! This was a fabulous experience- Gloria,Thomas and Luigi were all fantastic teachers; knowledgeable and great fun and they made it a memorable evening for everyone!! Once our pizzas were cooked we were able to eat the fruits of our labours and then finish our meal with a sample of everyone’s gelato. It was beautiful- and Gloria should know how to make it as her family are renowned award winning gelato makers!!! If you’re wondering if you should book this tour just do as it was one of the highlights of our trip to Florence…thank you Gloria,Thomas and Luigi from Nigel, Sallie, Roy and Nicky
