This is a DO NOT MISS experience while visiting Venice. My son and I were in Venice for Christmas and booked this on Christmas Eve Day. It began with a tour of the famous Rialto Market. We asked so many questions about the fish and vegetables for sale and Lorenzo, our guide/chef, answered all of them. And what I loved most is that we were able to decide as a group (a small one) what to cook. We ended up cooking things I've never cooked before, including homemade pasta. It was an education. And Lorenzo's home where we cooked was both cozy and functional (his music playlist also gets an A+)! It was by far our favorite activity in Venice. It felt like we were having a meal with friends when we all sat down to eat what we had created. We drank wine, ate great food, learned so much and talked for hours after we were scheduled to leave. He was a wonderful tour guide, a talented chef/teacher and a great human. HIGHLY recommend!

We met up with Lorenzo at the meeting point, he showed us round the Rialto market. Then he took us back to his place where we had the most amazing few hours. We prepared and cooked wonderful pasta and sauce along with a tiramisu. It was brilliant from start to finish. Thank you Lorenzo
