Tuscany Weekend: Pizza, Pasta, Prada!

PradaThe best things in life………are expensive! But think of all the money you will save once you learn how to make your own pasta! Our PPP weekend will teach you some great, simple Italian cooking and includes a shopping trip to the nearby Prada Outlet called Space. There are also some designs by Helmut Lang, MiuMiu and Jill Sander. The deals are spectacular with sometimes 50 to 75% off! Prada allows only 100 shoppers inside at one time and averages about 1,000 visitors a day.

Look at my ravioli!

We will collect you from the airport on Friday night and return you on Sunday evening (midweek is also a possibility). The trip to Space is on Saturday morning – the early bird catches the best bag. Then we will drag you kicking and screaming back to the villa for a fizzy wine tasting and pizza masterclass (you will get floury so no Prada please!). On Sunday you will have an Italian wine tasting and pasta masterclass followed by lunch. A perfect weekend.
