WOW! I'm not going to lie to you... I was nervous about the steps. I'm a typical FAT American and I didn't know if I would make it or even fit. I DID!!! and it was worth it. I'm not going to say it's not hard. It is. But not so hard you can't do it. There are places to... More

My wife and I attended the cooking school and had a wonderful day. The class was fun, as well as informative. In the end the food we food we prepared, ultimately cooked by the staff, was fantastic. Paul and Julio were fun and entertaining. We would definitely recommend the class.

This is a cute little Enotica next to the leather market in Florence. Livio is extremely knowledgeable and pair some great local wines with regional meats and cheeses. Just a word of warning - don't do what I did and start enjoying the food or wine when it is served - Livio will describe the wines and foods and discuss... More

My family (mom, brother, and myself) had booked a small group tour in July, and in our favor, the other portion of our group tour did not show so we had our wonderful tour guide (Valentina) to ourselves. She was PERFECT! My mom was nervous about the stairs, and she was so supportive and compassionate, and beyond that she provided... More

After touring the duomo with our guide, I don't know how anyone goes to see it without one. She made each turn so meaningful with historical facts that blew my mind along the way! Without her, I would know the history behind each stone I was standing on, and rah piece of artwork I was looking at. She so answered... More

We had an excellent time climbing the Brunelleschi Dome. The "skip the line" ticket is a must and the views from the top were unbelieveable. Inside, the frescos in the Duomo and the mosaics at the Baptistry were breathtaking. Although they caution against those who are claustophobic or may have trouble climbing, we had no issue at all (plenty of... More

Livio, host and shop owner, provided a unique wine and cheese tasting experience for our small group during which time he provided information about the various wines we sampled. We also had the opportunity to sample delicious jams, spreads and meats sold at the store which beautifully complemented the paired cheese and wine. Most appreciated was Livio's accommodation for my... More

On arrival at Florence Tasting we met Angela, our guide for the tour and were surprised to find ourselves the only persons attending. Angela forged on regardless, conducting us enthusiastically around a number of interesting venues where we were able to sample and learn about some of the important gastronomic products of Florence. Our first port of call was an... More
