This was an awesome experience and I highly recommend a cooking class during your trip to Florence. After we did this pizza/gelato class we tried to book a different one but they were all filled up. My 7 year old nephew loved the class, and it was his favorite day of the entire trip. My parents, and my husband also really enjoyed. It was definitely one the highlights of our trip as well. The cook was awesome and friendly and funny.

Fantastic experience, my two younger kids 6 and 9 had fun too :- a must do !!!
Our family of four had such a good time! Giuseppe involved out two girls 6 and 4 in the Gelato making process and although shy at first, they absolutely loved it. The class is informative, yet, very relaxed and heaps of fun. What a great way to spend an evening!
Fantastic evening with fantastic guide Paula. Highly recommend.
Tour was great, Paola and Guissepe made it so much fun for my family! We all enjoyed our pizza and Gelato! We all went home and made pizza!
We had Alessio as our guide and he was awesome! The demonstration and making of the pizza and gelato was so fun and yummy! Would highly recommend.
I went with my 2 teenage kids. It was a lot of fun, the teachers, Paola and Daniel, were very friendly and entertaining. The class was full-24 people-but everyone had a clear view of what was going on in the front and got individual attention when needed. I highly recommend it-tons of fun!
This was a fantastic experience! I loved being able to have the experience of making pizza from scratch, and watching as guest chefs prepared gelato chocolate to be shared among the group. Both tasted delicious! The instructors spoke slowly and clearly, modeled exactly what we needed to do, and circulated to help participants as needed. My one suggestion would be to break the instruction down to a step-by-step process the instructors tended to model all the steps at once, and then sent participants off to work independently. Providing a step-by-step process would help non-chefs such as myself to be more successful in preparing our pizzas. But this is a minor quibble the time flew by, I really enjoyed meeting my groupmates from all over the world, and the food was fantastic! Highly recommended.
Best of the 6 tours taken this trip!!! We got upgraded to the 3 hour tour that took us out to a winery out of the city in Chianti. Spend a few extra dollars and take the 69 euro tour rather than the 49 euro tour...well worth it I'm not a shill for any company,,,just a tourist like all of you reading thisFun, memorable and I so enjoyed myself. Alessio was a fantastic chef/guide/teacher. He was witty, charming, a great teacher and his English was great. I will tell everyone I know who plans to go to Florence to take this tour!!!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed the class. The chefs were really engaging and kept us and the kids entertained while we learned the arts of perfect pizza dough and gelato. Fantastic!
This was the highlight of our time in Florence !! We loved the chefs as they were entertaining and informative ! The pizza we made was fabulous and we enjoyed eating it all, along with the wine ... I brought along my nine year old son and he became the superstar chef of the evening ... They went above and beyond to make sure that everyone had a terrific time and learned the art of pizza making ! Next time we are in Florence this will be our first stop !
We were in Florence with our children ages 11,13,16 and looking for more active experience to mix things up. Tried this class and were very happy with everything. The groups ranged from couple to extended families, the pace of the instruction was great, and the teachers had wonderful personalities. The kids and my husband and I loved the experience. Good family fun- we will be making pizza homemade now!
Our guide, Daniel, was charming and entertaining--as well as very skilled--as he took us through the process of making a pizza from the point of dry flour to hot bubbling cheese coming out of the oven. And while our doughs were rising under a wet cloth, he took us also through the process of making a lovely chocolate gelato. Our kids, aged 9 and 11, came along and also found the whole experience delightful. Daniel was equally good with adults and kids, as he was both informative and entertaining. The whole experience was a welcome respite/retreat from several days wandering the hot summer streets of Italian cities. Our pizza, of course, wasn't as good as what we've found in the great restaurants of Florence, but it was so much more satisfying to have made it ourselves!
Paula and Giovanni guided us through making the pizza and gelato wonderfully.
Really fun experience with Giuseppe and Paula. This is perfect family tour. Both instructors were interactive and welcoming. The food we made was delicious, and the atmosphere was very fun!
This course was great fun! The facilitator Daniele was very knowledgeable and made us all laugh too. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Would recommend this to everyone.
This class was an awesome experience! The instructors, Daniel and Giuseppe made it so much fun to learn how to make pizza and gelato. The finished meal was excellent and it was topped off with delicious red wine. I am looking forward to making these recipes soon. I would absolutely recommend this as a wonderful activity while in Florence
The instructors were great, food amazing, and the entire experience was fun for the family. A great way to spend an evening in Florence.

What a fun tour, there were about 12 of us total one family with kids and the rest adults. It was a 10 minute walk to the cooking school. Both of the chefs were friendly and knew what they were doing. The gelato making portion wasn't as hands on, they more showed how it was done with use of volunteers from the class. I would have liked for the to show not only how to make cream gelato, but also the fruit version. The pizza making portion was 100 hands on, pizza made from scratch from the mixing of ingredients until it went in the oven. I would definitely recommend
