You will have your second hands-on cookery lesson after breakfast, followed by lunch. In the afternoon, visit a local winery for a private tasting. Return to the villa for dinner prepared by the chef.

Following breakfast, spend the morning exploring Florence and the amazing food market. Enjoy lunch at an excellent, “slow food” trattoria. Return back to the villa late afternoon for your final cookery lesson and dinner.

After breakfast and some time to relax, our transfer will collect you and take you back to Pisa Airport for your fight home.

Discover authentic Tuscany

Tuscan food is based on three simple principles: local, seasonal, and delicious. Local produce used in typical Tuscan cuisine adds a real freshness to the dishes. So, why not try a classic ‘Bistecca alla Fiorentina’, a traditional Tuscan T-bone steak washed down with a good Chianti, the famous wine of the region. Try some more wine on a private tasting at a local winery. Would you like to find out more? Make an enquiry here >
