We have put together this tempting weekend getaway package with a cookery course in Tuscany in collaboration with the Cookery School in Florence at the Mercato Centrale. The Lorenzo de’ Medici Cookery School is on the first floor of the renowned Mercato Centrale in Florence, in the San Lorenzo district. This special location allows the cookery school to always have access to the freshest, highest-quality ingredients and direct contact with the best local producers.
The school organizes cooking lessons for experts but also for novice cooking enthusiasts.
We, therefore, decided to create an offer with an overnight stay at the Brunelleschi Hotel combined with a private cooking lesson at the Mercato Centrale in Florence.
The package with cooking lesson includes:
– 1 or more nights in one of the hotel’s rooms or suites of your choice,
– daily generous, delicious à la carte breakfast or served in your room (on request at no extra charge),
– 1 private cooking lesson per person for about 2 hours at the Lorenzo de’ Medici Cookery School in Florence (date and time to be agreed following the package reservation),
– free early check-in and late check-out (depending on availability),
– free high-speed Wi-Fi,
