When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in Florence, shop, cook and eat as the Florentines do with our tour of Florence’s markets, ending with an authentic Italian cookery class. Part of what makes Italian cuisine so unique and exotic is the use of locally-sourced ingredients, many of which are hard to find outside of the country.

Our tour of Florence’s markets will help turn you into a seasoned expert when it comes to sourcing high-quality ingredients, as well as a professional in the kitchen when it comes to preparing and creating the flavour-filled and aromatic dishes most commonly associated with Italy.

Enjoy the thrills of the market and then retreat to one of our hand-picked villas near Florence to call your own during your stay.

Private Cooking Class

Once you have explored the sights, sounds and smells of the traditional Tuscan markets, it is time to learn more about Italian cooking. Not only will your chef guide you around the markets, showing you how to choose the best ingredients, but they will also show you how to get the best flavours from them and create a light lunch that you can enjoy with a glass of wine.

See more of our experiences or learn more about the art of fine Italian cuisine.
