It was one of the best decisions of my life! I had so so so much fun and enjoyed it very much. Chef Maria is amazing, super friendly gives great instruction and makes this class an amazing experience. I will keep this memory forever. Can't wait to try the recipe at home now!

Very useful for visiting museums, but above all the arena and Juliet's house, an essential pass to be able to avoid the kilometric queues at the entrance. Best purchase made

The cooking class was really an amazing experience, my partner and me definitely recommend it!

Everything went very well. I recommend this card to everyone to avoid queues and save money.

With priority entrance we skipped at least half an hour in the queue
