"Wonderful 25h anniversary vacation"
We had a great time with Enrico (our chef) and our stay at the Villa Fiesole Hotel. The location was great--away from the city but just a quick bus ride into town. It was quiet with clean accommodations. The staff was very helpful. We loved the hiking up the hill into Fiesole and visiting the Roman ruins there. We also had a great time in Florence--we went into town almost every day by bus and walked and shopped and ate. The breakfasts were typical European and made a good start to our days. We ate what we cooked in our cooking class for dinner so we didn't get to try the restaurant food. We will be back!

"Very fun experience!"
We really like the instructor Enrico, he spoke mostly in Italian, but it was really good for us because we experienced an authentic Italian cooking class. He did a lot of things by hand which was very neat. The hotel was close enough to Florence yet still in the country! We easily rode the bus to Florance with the locals! We met up with some old friends and celebrated both of our 25th anniversaries! Loved this experience!

"Villa Fiesole Cooking Vacation"
Villa Fiesole was a very nice hotel. The staff were pleasant and very helpful. My cooking classes with Chef Vilma were so enjoyable. I learned so much from her and enjoyed eating the fruits of our labor for dinner each night that we had a class.
