    Cooking in June

    CONS Cons: The room we stayed in in the Palazzo was not big enough and did not have the right facilities for two people.

    PROS Pros: We liked the balance of activities and cookery lessons. We enjoyed all of the excursions and Dario was an excellent guide and translator. He was very attentive and fun to be with.

    Organizer response: Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your review. We are really happy that you enjoyed both the cultural and culinary aspects of your authentic experience in Italy. As clearly stated in the program description, our 6 rooms are slightly different from each other. Every room has its own personality and a different touch of design in the furniture. Their dimensions vary from 18 to 25 square meters (195 to 270 sq. feet), because we had to preserve the original structure of the 18th-century building during the renovation. Regarding the room you stayed in, it was the only one available with both twin beds and a shower box (instead of jacuzzi), according to your explicit request at the time of booking. Should you decide to visit us again in the future, we'll make sure you obtain a larger room with a nice view. Thank you again for your valuable feedback and for the lovely time we spent together. Kind Regards Dario

    "If I were to recommend to a friend this course, I definitely would. I was very good because I made friends with the teachers and other students. It is a course where you learn a lot about Italian cuisine and its tradition, but it is also practical!"

    "In this week of Italian cooking class I and my friend, we learned a lot. We spent two weeks in Italy, a section dedicated to holidays and other more focused on learning the secrets of Italian cuisine. The recipes are explained carefully and you will learn many interesting details of the Italian culinary culture."

    "Speaking well about this vacation is so easy for me. The building is very historical and it belonged to a noble family. The rooms are very nicely furnished, the common areas are very relaxing and modern, and the cellar is well supplied with only natural and organic wines. I loved going to the farmers market place, wine cellars, olive oil mills and visiting monuments. The cooking lessons were very fun and the recipes are delicious. The staff speaks perfect English (not too easy to find this in Italy). I found everything that is promised in the offer. What they don’t tell you is that the people are very warm-hearted, kind and passionate, and especially the “I cook in Italy” staff which put together an unforgettable Italian experience. Marvelous!"

    "We had seven days of cooking lessons with I Cook In Italy in Arce as part of our 3 week trip through Italy. From the very first minute we were both made to feel right at home. Chef Paola is a wonderful cook and she patiently took us through each recipe and explained the important cultural and technical aspects of each dish. Every day was a new adventure. Many new experiences, new flavors, I think this was well worth the price. The area is wonderful. We visited Anagni, Cassino, the Casamari Gothic Abbey and we had a delightful dinner on the seaside. Everything was great. A definite experience to remember."

    "We learned so much during this week! The Chef Paola really loves to teach so it was so much fun. The palazzo where we stayed was charming, the Roman countryside is amazing. What I loved more was the perfect mix of fun, cooking classes and excursions. The staff is great and took great care of us. I wish i will go back. Grazie."

    "We stopped at Palazzo Tronconi on our way south from Fiumicino airport but wish we had stayed longer. We will revisit this place. Marco and staff and friends were very welcoming. Palazzo Tronconi produces excellent wine which we were very delighted to sample."

    " A gorgeous view on the valley, a typical small center very close to the structure. The staff is very friendly and the top is logically the typical food and their wine production as well. You should try it!"
