"Cooking Like an Ancient Tuscan"

The Villa was beautiful and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Excellent service. Chef Gloria was incredible. She was organized and accommodated dishes I wanted to learn. Her passion for cooking and sharing her family recipes was evident each day.

She shared tips from her grand mothers kitchen and this history of the dishes we made. She made each day a special experience.

The staff at Instituto Galiliei were also very responsive to all the questions I had before the trip. JImberly was very responsive, She helped me to organize other excursions and sent me options and worked with me to make my trip memorable.

The entire experience from booking to end far exceeded my expectations

I will be returning !

"Amazing authentic cooking experience in Florencr!"

I could not have been happier with my experience with the Galilei Institute cooking course at Ristorante da Lino! I was able to make more than twenty authentic Italian dishes and any requests I had were met by Chef Nicola! Location was amazing and Jimberly was so helpful organizing everything for me! I have already decided to come back next year to take some Italian language courses and continue my cooking experience!
