Convivio Cooking tour one day class was magnificent. The instructions to get there are easy to follow and the hilltop villages are beautiful and a great respite from the crowds of Rome. Sally, Guido and their daughter are wonderful hosts. You cook, you learn about the culture, you enjoy delicious food, do a little tour of the hilltop villages. Everything... More

Thank you for your lovely comments about the one day cooking class you had with us. I am so pleased you could join us at the last minute and as you were a single traveller, that you blended into the group immediately. I hope you enjoyed the rest of the time in Rome, and your continued travels to Sicily. More

If you have some time when in Rome I would certainly recommend this cooking experience. After a 40 minute train trip Sally picks you up at the station and takes you to the beautiful cliff top town of Toffia where she takes you on a walking tour of the town. Guido then runs the cooking class which is a lot... More

This was so great! Arriving in the little hilltop town of Toffia is like stepping back in time. If you want someplace off the main tourist track, here you go. It's breathtakingly picturesque and you'll probably be the only tourists in town. Now, throw in the wonderful hosts Guido and Sally, a hands-on cooking class, a wonderful meal, and a... More

This was not just a cooking holiday - these were 3 days spent in Paradise! Thank you Sally and Guido for the lovely time I had in Toffia. You looked after me long before I arrived by giving me such helpful directions for the easy train journey from Rome to Fara Sabina. My accommodation was lovely with the little garden... More

If you are thinking about having a unique experience, do not hesitate to enroll in one of the Convivio Rome Cooking Holidays. I thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with Guido and Sally and my 5 lady friends and would echo the comments of my travel companions. Sally and Guido were friendly, organized, informative and much fun. They provided hands-on opportunities... More

I had an incredible time at the Convivio 5 day cooking class. I went with a group of 5 girl friends and it far exceeded our expectations. We fell in love with the medieval town of Toffia and our accommodations. The cooking classes were so much fun and each member of the group takes an active role in the preparation.... More

I just returned from a trip to Italy with a group of 6 women friends and spent 5 nights/6 days in Toffia with Guido and Sally. Another friend asked me how it compared to many other trips in the last 20 or more years and my reply was "one of the best ever". It was an easy train ride from... More

I just returned from the 5-day cooking holiday with 5 other friends. I think "holiday" really describes the experience...lots to learn with wonderful guides (Sally, Guido and their contacts), a relaxing setting in a medieval village, and a schedule that left plenty of time for exploring the area. I have taken several other cooking tours in Europe, and this one... More

We booked this day trip to get out of Rome for a day and to give the kids a break from museums and ruins. Booking the class was easy, and Sally is quick to respond to all e-mails. She was there to meet us at the train, and pointed out the sights along the way to their home. Their village... More

It was a pleasure meeting you and your family and being able to offer you all a truly italian experience. Your young daughters certainly demonstrated their love for cooking, a passion they certainly got from you, and we really loved the way you all 'rolled up your sleeves' and enjoyed learning something new. Authentic italian recipes are simple and the... More
