Dating from the 15th century, the villa's facade is attributed to Michelangelo. Step inside and you experience the ethereal beauty and solitude of a Renaissance monastery that is as much a part of Italy's culture as the country's greatest cathedrals and galleries. Rooms and suites are located in the old monastery building and nestled amid the beautiful gardens. Each enjoys spectacular views and boasts its own unique style and antique furnishings.
Join in Chef Attilio di Fabrizio during his fun hands-on lessons. The course will be held every Monday, Thursday, and Saturday from 10:00 to 12:30 and will focus on the preparation of a Tuscan appetizer, a first course, and a dessert. Afterwards, you'll sit down with fellow students to enjoy the dishes you have made matched with Tuscan wines chosen by a sommelier.
