Crazy about gelato? Florence is a safe bet for a truly artisan Gelato experience as it is considered the birthplace of gelato by many food enthusiasts and journalists! In Florence, you can partake in a short gelato crawl to discover artisan producers while learning about the tradition of Italian gelato.

Mangia la pasta? Love pasta? Kids and adults love pasta and what more fun than to take the family to a pasta shop or a private home of an Italian mamma chef to learn the secrets of Italian pasta making- by hand!

Did someone say chocolate? Consider a chocolate shop tasting tour or learn how to make artisan chocolates in Italy's premier food markets and chocolate shops with truly talented sweet chefs. These kinds of activities are especially delicious in cities like Florence, Bologna, Perugia, Modica (Sicily) and Turin where chocolate laboratories, shops and makers run rampant. Interested in a customized chocolate experience which includes having the kids (or teens) make their own Italian artisan chocolates? Request more info!
