The class was a lot of fun. Learned some great tips on authentic pizza and how to look for good authentic gelato versus not so good gelato. We each made the dough and created individual pizzas with a choice of toppings. As a group, we made gelato. Wine was served with our pizza and gelato. We all received certificates and cookbooks at the end of the class. It was well worth it.

Went with my wife and daughter who is studying abroad and had a great time learning how to make pizza and gelato and then enjoy eating it. Alain was a very good host and instructor who shared a lot of tips about cooking and Italians culture. Definitely recommend.

We had a wonderful experience in this class. The instructors Catarina and Martina are both knowledgeable and super friendly. They went out of their way to ensure we all had a great time, but also left with some new skills we can use at home. The pizza we made was surprisingly simple to make, but very tasty and the gelato was outstanding. The tour is well recommended!

This was such a fun class! Martina and both Catarinas were great hosts and chefs! We learned about pizza, and which Gelaterias were the best to visit. Grazie mille!

We took this class in Florence with the Caterinas and Nicolo! They were fantastic teachers and took extra time to make sure everyone had a great time! All of the teachers took time to demonstrate slowly and clearly and were eager to provide not only information about pizza making but about the best places to visit in Florence! We would do this class again if we stayed in Florence longer!

Had a great time with Caterina, Martina and Jon. It was a fun time to make our own pizza. We mostly just watched them make gelato but there was good information and it tasted good. There is a walk from where you meet to start so be aware of that.

We took the pizza and gelato making class during our recent trip to Florence. We had a great experience. The instructor was very patient and helpful. Everything was well organized and easy to follow along in spite of the fact my sons didn’t have a lot of cooking experience. My two teenage sons absolutely loved the class. In fact, they both said it was the best part of our trip. Our instructor even gave us tips on what to look for when buying gelato at a gelateria. I also liked the fact that the class wasn’t too large making it a more intimate setting.I highly recommend this as a fun hands-on activity to do with the family.

A must do while I’m Florence with your family!

I traveled with a group of 16 high school students from the USA to Florence. We took the pizza and gelato class on one of our first nights and the kids loved it! At the end of the week, many of the students said this was there favorite event/dinner of the week. Fun, informative, hands-on literally and a great way to combine an activity and a meal.
