We booked a custom private tour of a local cheese-making farm with lunch and then a short tour of Volterra nearby. This was far and away our best day, and not just because Volterra and Fattoria Lischeto (the farm where we lunched) are amazing, but because our guide was so, so amazing. Moira absolutely made the entire experience for us,... More

Our guide, Giulia, met us at the train station and showed us all the highlights of this gorgeous city. It was such a pleasure speaking with her and learning about the history of Florence. The historic center of the city is small enough to walk, and the whole center is like a giant at gallery. We saw both the Academia... More

My husband and I capped a wonderful trip to Italy with a Tuscan cooking class with Rita and Ester. The class was booked through Arianna and Friends and was one of the highlights of our trip. The 4+hour adventure was worth every penny. The farm and restored farmhouse were charming and Rita, our host, shared her home and lifestyle with... More

We had the wonderful Arianna herself come to teach us about, and prepare for us, the delights of Tuscan cuisine in our own villa. Very fun, interactive and informative, the meal we created was absolutely delicious and we have already begun incorporating the techniques we learned in our every day cooking. A true highlight of our trip with memories we... More

We had looked forward to the Typical Tuscan dinner group cooking class/dinner and were not disappointed. The farmhouse and farm were charming, as were our hostess and translator, Rita, and Esther, our lovely grandma cooking instructor. They both made our chopping and stirring and listening to cooking tips fun and entertaining, so that every member of the family, including our... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of taking a private cooking class with Arianna & Esther while we were in Tuscany. They showed us how to make several dishes, including a wonderful ravioli. They brought everything necessary to our villa, and we thoroughly enjoyed getting to know both of these beautiful women...by the end of the evening, I wanted... More

We spent a great day with our wonderful guide and host Luca! We visited the ancient village/ castle at Lari. We enjoyed a visit to a local pasta factory, a family owned butcher where we enjoyed fresh bruschetta... fantastic! Then to a local olive oil mill... and a home made pasta lunch. If you are in the region I strongly... More

It was such a great Vespa tour with Massimo, that I am still thinking about it 7 months later. Massimo brought us to several villages for coffee and snacks, and to an abandoned Italian village now owned entirely by an American businessman. He also brought us to the field where Andrea Bocelli was about to give his annual concert in... More

We met the team @ Arianna and Friends during our tour of Peccioli - a very friendly, hospitable bunch. We had a great walking tour of Peccioli with Luca, and a wonderful pastry and pizza cooking lesson with Andrea and crew. Highly recommended for anyone looking for activities in the Peccioli / Pisa area.

I recently spent a fantastic week in Italy with friends - we stayed at Borgo alle Vigne and decided to add a cooking class through Arianna & Friends for Thanksgiving Day. What a fantastic day! Veronica and Daniela were such fun hosts - they arrived at the villa promptly; they brought us cute aprons and menus where we could take... More
