Know More about this tour

So you love pizza (you're dying to know how to prepare an authentic Italian one), you crave gelato, and you'd like to get out of the city and discover the amazing Tuscan countryside.

This experience will give you the opportunity to uncover all the secrets of these three great wonders of Italy in the exclusive atmosphere of a small-group tour.

A comfortable minivan will take you out of Florence on a beautiful 25 min drive. You'll arrive at a magnificent Renaissance Villa on the hills of the Chianti wine region immersed in olive groves, vineyards and overlooking the city of Florence, Brunelleschi's Dome standing out among the other buildings in view.

All the magic of pizza making is about to take place in our fascinating old style kitchen, next to the ancient cellar, where beautiful marble tables await you. On those marble tables, your hands will soon get dirty with flour as you prepare your pizza dough.

Everyone will be able to prepare his/her own home-made Pizza from scratch: first you'll prepare the dough. While it rests a little while, you'll learn about Gelato (Italian Ice-Cream) making and its origins, and observe a demonstration of home-made gelato preparation. Then, you'll make your elbows swing as you stretch your own Pizza to its round shape. Put your favorite toppings on top and there we go, "in forno!": you'll learn to master the instant magical movement of the pizza peel and load your pizza straight into the oven in the blink of an eye (you’ll scoop it from table to paddle without even moving the toppings.).

You'll learn how easy it is to replicate this secret recipe at home and It will be the best Pizza you have ever tasted guaranteed.

In an informal and friendly atmosphere, you'll enjoy eating your marvelous handmade dinner and a delicious gelato.
Right where it has been produced for centuries, you’ll taste renowned Chianti Wine while you cook and eat your pizza. The scent of wine will surround and seduce you.

At the end of the dinner, to conclude the wonderful evening, you'll enjoy a breathtaking view of bright and shining Florence by night, from the height of your gentle Tuscan Hill.

Then, full and happy, you’ll return to the city in the minivan, holding your well-earned graduation certificate.

  • Super fun family excursion. We only had 6 people in our group including the 4 of us and pizza making and gelato class with chef David was engaging, interesting and most of all fun for kids and adults. It's one of the highlights of our trip and we'd highly recommend it.

  • I did this activity twice, once with Nick and once with Giuseppe and Kevin. Each had different tricks to making the pizza dough and the gelato. We went out into the Tuscan countryside and tasted wine at a nearby winery and had as much wine as we wanted as we made the pizza. I recommend the rosé.

  • This was so fun. Jon and Brooke were so much fun and so great. Would highly recommend. Brought my kids age 16 and 28 and they loved it as well. This is great for preteens all the way to granny. Great way to spend an evening. Would do this again!!

  • The chefs teaching the class were great teachers and very entertaining. I would recommend everyone take a cooking class while visiting Tuscany. The food turned out great, the farm was beautiful and the wine tasty. Its is about a 25 minute drive to the location and they weren't planning on providing any commentary on the areas we were passing or really any information about the area or history. A few people in the group were requesting this and they finally caved and provided some info. I would hope they know if they are taking visitors on a 25 minute drive that they should entertain the guests with knowledge about their city. I also did feel like it was a little rushed. As soon as we were done eating, they had already cleaned up and were ready to take us back. A little more time to relax after eating would have gone a long way.

  • Guiseppe was great! Very entertaining and informative about the origins of wine and the region. Pizza and Gelato making was fun and tasted fantastic. And did i mention the view!! Amazing view looking over the Tuscan hills and wine region. Highly reccomend

  • Gorgeous setting! Small fun group with Chef Danielz. Made pizza crust from scratch, placed toppings. Used an indoor hot oven to cook them. Pizza was really good, we got to eat what we made individually. Chef made us a chocolate pizza dessert that was fantastic and was very entertaining! The gelato making was interesting and of course was fabulous!

  • My daughter and I absolutely loved this class!!! Alessio, our guide and teacher was wonderful. His instruction was easy to follow and so entertaining. We left with not only the confidence to make pizza and gelato at home, but with the recipes and a certificate as well. An absolutely wonderful evening.

  • Great activity to do while you and #39;re in Florence, the class was fun and informative! My only issue was that only 2/12 people got to make gelato, other 10 people didn and #39;t had any contribution in making gelato which was not fair.
    Pizza itself was amazing, one of the best I and #39;ve had, would highly recommend.

  • Fun for the whole family. Even Dad still talks about this one. Relaxing drive to villa and amazing scenery once there! Had 13 in our class. Great mix of families and children. David and #39;s a great chef and was kind to everyone. Our pizza and gelato were delicious. Wonderful experience we will treasure forever!

  • This tour was excellent, good value for money, guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely recommend.
