On your Next Vacation: Take an Italian Cooking Course

No one goes to Italy just once. Everyone who walks the streets of ancient Rome or visits a villa in Tuscany is hooked. Most visitors to Italy go back again and again, but they long to recapture the feelings they had when they visited Italy for the very first time.

One way to recapture that fresh, new feeling and make it seem like you've never been to Italy before is to take an Italian cooking course during your next Italian vacation.
