My friend and I booked this trip after we arrived in Rome as a last minute, we happened to make a free day to try to get into a cooking class. We reached out and were able to book on our one free day! It was great to take the train outside of the city for the day, get a quick tour of the countryside and go to Sally and Guido's home for an amazing day that we will never forget. The view alone was spectacular. The class was informative, laid back, fun and the final products were delicious! I took a zillion photos, videos and ate so much. I am definitely not a great cook and Guido was very patient in showing me how to do every step. How many people can say that they made home made pasta in Italy?!? Well I have photos/videos to prove it. Highly recommended.

My husband and I took the one day class, (He did so somewhat reluctantly, although he's a good sport about trying things). We were not disappointed and both of us felt that was a day trip to remember. The tours of the medieval villages were very personal as Sally and Guido live not far from them. There were three of us in the class and all were able to participate fully. After lunch we all spent time at the table talking about meals made by our ancestors as well as WWII and how it impacted the area. If we return to Rome, we would absolutely take another class.

We really enjoyed the cooking experience: learning to make pasta with Guido and a short sightseeing tour with Sally. Beautiful surrounding just a stone throw north of Rome. Highly recommended for anyone, Italians included. Conviviorome is a nice example of what can be done to promote and preserve local communities and natural environment. In fact practically all products used for the cooking experience were local and organic.

Attending a cooking class and day excursion with Convivio was the highlight of our trip to Rome. We had such an amazing time learning from Sally and Guido, and everything was so well organized and accommodating. We cooked an amazing meal, and our families enjoyed it together. Simply magical. All of this was topped off with a visit to the Farfa Abbey, where we learned about the history of the area. I cannot give enough praise to Convivio Rome for their hospitality and our incredible experience.

Such a lovely day and such a lovely family! We were a group of 4 and 2 of us had just arrived to Italy from the US the night before, so jet lag was an issue. The weather was rainy and cool. The perfect set up for a "stay at your hotel" kind of day. But I am so glad we didn't! From the minute we arrived to the minute we parted ways with Sally and Guido, we were engaged in some sort of activity. Sally gave us a wonderful history lesson of the area, and took us on a walk through an amazing hill top town. Guido taught us to make homemade pasta and used every bit of each ingredient for all accompanying dishes - a 3-course meal and nothing was wasted. We ate local sheep milk cheese and meat cured locally. We had local olive oil and wine with lunch. The herbs we cooked with were picked right off the road and from their garden that afternoon. The eggs we used were from the neighbor's hens. I loved every mouthwatering moment! The food was wonderful, and so was the company. They were both so open and willing to talk and share their ideas about so many things... I forgot I had paid for this day and felt more like I was visiting friends while on vacation. I would definitely recommend this activity to any and all traveling through Rome.
