Cooking Schools in Italy

Does anyone have any experience with Italian cooking schools? I'd love to try a week or so cooking, tasting and generally enjoying!

Thanks.

      Looking in Tuscany. I'm a pretty good cook, but this will be my first time in Italy and first time at a cooking school.

    2. If in Liguria I suggest the cooking school of the GRAND HOTEL MIRAMARE in Santa Margherita Ligure.
      Look at its website: www.grandhotelmiramare.it/

        Have you taken the course at the school and if so, what was it about the course that makes you recommend it. Thanks.

          May I also ask if anyone knows of cooking classes-one to two days-in Florence?
          Many thanks.

      2. I would suggest going to Slowtrav http://www.slowtrav.com/cl/short.asp?... for a good list.
