During the holiday, guests will be provided with daily accommodation in the center of Florence. You can choose from the following options:


High-quality hotels near the school, with special rates for Galilei Institute students.


Furnished apartments of different sizes, with all facilities for a comfortable stay, supplied with linen and towels.


This course is a very practical one: participants prepare dishes studied together with the chefs. The course is scheduled from 15:30 to 18:30, with a dinner at the end of the lesson. The aim of this cooking course is to introduce you to the complex world of Italian food and wines (you will learn to know, appreciate and enjoy them). Very competent chefs will train you, sharing aspects of authentic Italian gastronomic culture, and together you will prepare the recipes studied. Lessons involve the preparation of an entire menu; from antipasti (appetizers) to dolci (desserts). At the end of each session, after having prepared the recipes, you will sit down at the restaurant and dine on your own creations, accompanied by the most suitable wines.


This cooking course will take place in Florence, Italy. Galilei Institute is located downtown, in the university area and in the same block as the academy, where Michelangelos David is shown.
