Looking for a way to inspire yourself during this long, dark, cold Winter? In my opinion there’s no better place to travel this time of year than Italy. Particularly Florence. It’s a city of museums, beautiful geography (love the Arno!), and vibrant people. It’s also home to many cooking schools. A vacation where you can relax and learn a new skill? What could be better than that? The L’Arti & Hotel Firenze offers a Tuscan cooking package suited for all levels, they even cover kosher Italian cooking. Book as a group or on your own for private tutoring. You can learn in French, English or Italian. Best of all, after class is over, you eat!
