One thing that I love to do when traveling is to take a local cooking class! I love cooking in general, and I really enjoy trying new foods when I travel. There’s also something very satisfying about making a meal from scratch. When I was in Italy back in November I took a class right outside of Florence in the Chianti Hills that I found on Airbnb experiences. It was definitely one of the highlights of my entire trip. It’s just really fun to fully immerse yourself in a culture and meet some locals. Luca and Lorenzo who put together the experience I did were absolutely amazing! They teach the class right inside their home so it felt very authentic. They provide you with everything you need for the class plus snacks and drinks. They also pick you up and drop you off at the train station, so there’s very little chance of getting lost if that’s something you worry about. I would recommend this experience 100% if you’re ever in Florence.
