4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW via mobile

Recent 5 night stay was wonderful. Room spacious, clean & comfortable. Host Fulvio was generous with travel tips and his suggestions were always worth the visits. Directing us to smaller, less touristy towns like Volterra and Certaldo. The swimming pool was a welcome late afternoon activity. San Gimignano 10 minutes away and much better to visit late afternoon when the... More

We had planned our week and a 1/2 vacation to Italy with our 14 year old daughter and were looking for something to do while passing through Tuscany. The idea of a cooking class came up. After doing a quick search I came across Il Vicario and Katia's and Fulvios cooking class. Having many busy days planned from Venice to... More

We did the 'advanced' cooking class with Katia - 4+ hours of Tuscan food education, preparation, eating and drinking. Katia made the whole expericence very enjoyable with her patient, humourous style of teaching. We learned so much more than you ever could from a book and the food was delicious! I highly recommend this experience. Price 120 Euros.

The class was very enlightening as to how to cook proper Tuscan food. The hosts were extremely helpful and friendly! Really enjoyed eating the food we made while having a glass of wine on the patio. Highly recommended!

Two couples had a great time staying at this friendly B&B. We stayed 3 nights. We ate complimentary breakfast daily, and ate dinner there too each night. One night Katina gave us a Tuscan cooking lesson and it was great. She is relaxed and patient and I will think of her when we use her recipes at home. Flávio, Katina's... More

For those that plan on visiting the Tuscany region of Italy, you absolutely MUST book a cooking class with Fulvio at Il Vicario in San Gimignano. Fulvio was one of the most genuine, kind, and amazing people we had the pleasure of meeting on our girls trip to Tuscany. We thoroughly enjoyed the cooking class and plan to incorporate a... More

We booked a cooking lesson based on other reviews and we were not disappointed. The lesson was for lunch and we did it with a Canadian couple. Katia was a great host and cook and we enjoyed making, eating and learning about Tuscan food. I have promised myself to make all recipes when I get home!

This was our seventh visit to the wonderful IlVicario. We stayed in the apartment which is spacious with lovely views onboth sides. We stayed for five days but this is never enough for us! We visited more lovely hill towns on Fulvio's vast knowledge of the region. We always returned in the evening for dinner. Each night we were surprised... More
