What people are saying about Campania

What a great pizza making class! We were picked up from our hotel and taken into the hills and to the cooking school where we were greeted with a glass of wine and a chance to meet the rest of the group. We were then introduced to Luigi who took us through the process of making the pizza, from the initial dough, to stretching it out and then adding the toppings before cooking. Everything was very relaxed and enjoyable and we all had a great time. The pizzas were excellent too which we got to sit and enjoy with the group sat around tables chatting. This is a great class to do if you're in the area, everything was set up for you and help was given so that everyone got to enjoy what they made. There was no touristy hard sell either, vying for tips etc which some classes I've done have been like. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone.

I would highly recommend this activity! It is great for people who want to explore the Sorrento coast by water for a couple of hours but not spend the whole day on a boat. You get to see a waterfall and go underneath it from the boat. You also stop to swim at this beautiful cove where it looks out to the Island of Capri while also having limoncello in the water! The captain was super friendly and made the experience well worth it! Thank you Claudio for the best last day!

Anna was amazing! It was just me and my sister, and we had a blast. The hostess was patient, informative, and just overall wonderful.

The girl teaching the class was amazing. Her instructions were clear and entertaining. The food we made was delicious.

Great fun and also very informative. Great for small groups or families too.
