Italian & Cooking Classes in Florence, Italy - Tuscany Cooking Holidays

Italian Language & Cooking Holidays in Florence

A trip to Italy cannot be truly complete without exploring Italian cuisine!

The joy of taste Italian food, pasta and pizza, the art of cooking meat and fish and choosing the perfect ingredients…

Fresh vegetables from Florence market

This is why the world envies us: as we sit around a table life becomes less frantic, people come together and let themselves go.

The school was great! I'm really happy that I was able to be a student there. Enzo is a great teacher, I had lots of fun in his class and I met wonderful people— Alexandra, Bulgaria

We have developed this program which combine Italian language classes and cooking lessons for anyone who wants to experience this feeling: come and stay in Florence for a few weeks joining our Italian Language course, and cooking workshops for everyone, from beginners to professionals, so you can make friends with the locals and astonish people cooking the Italian way!

In just a few weeks, you will make clear progress, happily making your first homemade ice cream or catching the first glimpses of your own linguistic mastery.

In addition to that, the school also offers a range of activities, learning tours and weekend trips which can be added at any time to make your holiday even more intense and rewarding!
