This pizza making class is a memorable way to spend an afternoon in Palermo, especially if you’re travelling with your family.

Your pizza chef will show you how to stretch, sauce, bake and slice your creation. But your dough is going to have to rest before you sample your creation. However, we’ve got the time you’d otherwise be waiting filled with two activities. Firstly, anyone over 18 can sample wines. Then, everybody will learn (demostration) how to make chocolate gelato and the cone to put it in. Your chef will also take you through the history of Italian ice cream - perfect! Once everything is ready, you’ll be able to eat your delicious pizza and gelato. However, that’s not the end of the class. You’ll get a souvenir to take home - a digital booklet with recipes so you can make pizza and gelato for your family and friends back home, who are sure to be impressed!

What people are saying about Sicily

I booked this tour and a half day tour spur of the moment and so glad I did. This was a great day trip from Palermo. The drivers let us know important things/what to do at each stop. I didn’t know much about any of the stops when booking, especially Erice. Erice turned out to be one of my favorite stops from both of the tours I did. Definitely recommend!

Fabrizio was the perfect guide. The food tour was a great introduction to Palermo, with a great balance of iconic sightseeing, exploring the street market, learning and eating. Being able to ask Fabrizio for recommendations both during and after the tour via text made our trip feel fulfilling, stress free and authentic.

great trip and the guys were great,We had a great day and it was what we wanted as we were left alone to enjoy the sites without any commentry or visits to shopping experiences.We would highly reccomend as we got to visit three places that are hard to access by public transport

Great way to learn a bit of history and to sample the local street food!

Very knowledgeable! Nice, Funny, good pace of tour
