Food & Wine

The flavours of Tuscan cooking

We select and advise you on the best cooking courses in the city: under the guidance of a professional chef, you’ll learn to make delicious ravioli, tagliatelle, tagliolini, pappardelle depending on the menu of the week! Alternatively, you can participate in a tailor-made course for one or more days with specific themes based on your own recipes and desires, prepared under the chef’s direct supervision.

In search of truffle

We can recommend different types of truffle tours: from 1 hour hunts to full-day tours that combine cooking lessons and wine tasting. Truffle hunting is an ancient Tuscan tradition; it’s less of a job and more of a real and genuine passion: it requires a trained dog, a searcher (authorised by the local authorities) and above all, love and respect for nature.

Private tour in Chianti Classico

A full-day tour with private driver complete with cellar tastings, typical restaurants and ancient villages in the heart of the Chianti, crossing through the Tuscan countryside.

Depending on your preferences, the tour can be personalised to include a visit to other points of interest before returning to the hotel.

Pic nic

When the sun is shining bright, there’s nothing more relaxing than lying in the garden and enjoying the peace and calm of this secluded oasis located right in the heart of Riva Lofts. Forget about the hassle of going out for lunch during the hottest hours of the day and treat yourself to our picnic basket by the pool! Inside a traditional Florentine basket ordered earlier in the morning, you’ll find a selection of local delicacies and snacks sure to top off the perfect afternoon.
