The Best Place to Rest and Relax!

Tuscany is a beautiful region in central Italy.  It is known for its stunning landscapes, rich history, rolling hills covered in vineyards and olive groves.  This is a must visit destination for anyone interested in history, culture, food or just looking to relax in a truly picturesque setting. We stayed for a few nights at the lovely Relais Poggio Borgoni.  This breath taking pensione was the perfect spot to rest a bit and take in the views. 

One day we left our little spot to take a Italian cooking class with walking food tour! Taught by the legendary Grandma Carmela.  We learned about ancient culinary recipes that are still popular today.  We were taken to a Tuscan farmhouse with a modern kitchen. We learned to make pasta, pizza, and tiramisu, all from scratch.  Carmela danced and sang as she cooked, we all laughed and enjoyed our glorious meal together once it was all done!  You can find this cooking class on Tripadvisor, under Cooking Class in Florence. Highly Recommend!
