This was so much fun! We can’t wait till we’re home making pizza and gelato for our fiends. The setting is in the hills so beautiful with magnificent city views!! Chis is very knowledgeable Chef and helps you understand the process of making Gelato. With the right tools you can master this wonderful treat! The pizza chefs Arla and Tiziano are funny and very helpful in making the dough snd taking you through the process of making your own pizza. Tiziano showed Michael how to use the pizza oven and what tools he needs. Can’t wait to fire up our pizza oven! This should be on your list to do while staying in Florence!! Thank You! Michael and Ruth

I boarded the San Luca express at 4.10pm and we were provided with headphones so to listen to the tour on the way. We arrived at the Basilica of St Luca about 30 mins later - it took us along the road adjacent to the Portici where people can walk all the way to the Basilica - it is used as a place to exercise also for sportspeople. When we arrived, we had about 50 mins till the next San Luca Express. We could take photos from the outside visit the Basilica inside and pay our respects (it was a pilgrimage place that many believers would visit). It was a most glorious evening and a view of the mountains on the outskirts of Bologna was visible.

Highly recommend for first time visit Florence. Should do it at first place actually

Well signposted! easy to use and very interesting as a tour to discover Florence

Great way to get around the city for the time that we had pass.
