What to do in Tuscany?
I think that the best is to look for authentic experiences. Tuscany is wonderful, and you can decide to follow the standard touristic tours in the most famous towns: Lucca, Pisa, San Gimignano, Siena, Florence. Anyway don’t forget that if you’re living around these towns there are so many “adventures” to live which are very authentic and can give you the real sense of enjoing a holiday in Tuscany.
Well, what to do in Tuscany? the best authentic experiences are of course related wit food:
taking a COOKING CLASS. Better if a Private one: professional cooking coaches which directly come to your holiday home to run a real Tuscan cooking class.
Cuoche in Vacanza is an 8 years experienced company that you can CONTACT to have right this.
What to do in Tuscany during a Cooking Class? Fresh Handmade Pasta! No doubt.
Be careful: a cookery course in Tuscany has now become a fashion and you risk to have at your Villa some people (not professional) who can stay much more time than promised and miss some important ingredients for your class. In many cases you risk of getting bored because of long downtime between preparations. Only a many years experience from your cooking coach can guarantee a perfect management of time, learning and fun.

What to do in Tuscany? Eat dishes that you can’t imagine and you’ll never find in a restaurant.
A Private Cook at your holiday home. It’s not only not to taste touristic menus, it’s the opportunity to eat like a local, like a Tuscan family.
Please CONTACT us to watch our Menus: only quality, fresh and seasonal ingredients, local produce.
This is a way to taste all the Tuscan and Italian dishes often different from those ones of restaurants.
Added to this you choose your time and stay comfortably at your home, avoiding queues and waiting times, while kids can do whatever they like.
Be careful: some people pretend to be cooks just to make money from the touristic business. They have no passion for quality food (I’d say for the land of Tuscany) and come to your home after buying food at the takeways or, at worst, they buy to the supermarkets food ready to be heated.
How to avoid this?
- Check that they prepare every course by scratch, dessert included
- Be sure that they’ll come to your holiday home about 2,30 hours before dinner (a shorter time is often impossible for a full menu)
The reasons above bring to a choice:
- Prepare genuine, but high quality food. Obviously not complicated desserts needing minimum 1 day rest time or to be frozen for many hours before tasting.
- To focus on what is fresh and homemade. That’s why Cuoche in Vacanza are mad about Fresh Pasta and they’ll prepare it by scratch before your eyes!
