Overview

This tour is designed to bring you in touch with the enchanting tuscan countryside, food and wine. We'll visit a villa in the heart of the Chianti region, on the edge of a stunning medieval castle uplooking the tuscan countryside, where you will create authentic tuscan antipasti, learn about extravirgin olive oil, roll your own home-made pasta and relish our typical tuscan dessert. After creating your own lunch, take pride (and a fork) to indulge in the feast that you have prepared. Tuscan cuisine is an experience full of celebration and satisfaction, that you can enjoy with your family or with your partner. Fun and passion will be the real ingredients of this fantastic cooking class! On our way back to Florence we'll stop and have a walk into the medieval town of San Gimignano, featuring thirteen authentic 12th century towers, where we'll visit the famous Dondoli gelato maker and taste his world champion gelato. Do not miss "Crema di Santa Fina" with saffron and vanilla, "Venere Nera" with blackberry and lavander, and "Rosemary Baby" with raspberry and rosemary!

Vespa Tour

The vespa tour was an absolute blast. Unfortunately the equipment supplied to Fun in Tuscany by a third party was not the most reliable, however, the scenery and ride was worth any trouble that may have been caused by said equipment.

A totally enjoyable day.

A totally enjoyable experience. Our guide, Guido, the self-proclaimed King of Tuscany did a great job. Our visit to the two wineries, that included lunches were both great. Also, the visit to San Gimignano was a pleasant time. One of the best memories of our stay in Florence.
