At the Florentine Market

  • City: Florence
  • Duration: Approximately 5 hours (included cooking lesson - 3 hours)

Shop for supplies in Florence’s famous San Lorenzo market and then go back to Francesca di Leonardo’s cheery home kitchen to make a traditional Italian meal.


Take a trip back in time to discover the traditions of Florentine market shopping and cooking. Francesca di Leonardo will take you to the San Lorenzo market, introducing you to local produce and customs. Together you'll select the freshest ingredients before returning to Francesca's home to cook a traditional Tuscan meal. This culinary adventure allows you to learn about Italian culture in the most intimate setting -- dinner around the family table.

This is a 'home-style' cooking class, which takes place in the private apartment of Francesca di Leonardo, located in Florence's San Frediano district.
