“Cortona Cooking Course. A great way to spend the afternoon.”
5 stars! ***** Reviewed 17 June 2014
We had a great time with Robert Russo, the owner of Relais Parco Fiorito, at his cooking class given personally by him. The course starts at 4 pm in the afternoon, and is really perfect because it gives you the first half of the day to go sightseeing. At 4 pm, you meet him in his countryside home just 3 miles from Cortona and put on your aprons to begin your 4 course class prepared for your own enjoyment at dinner as well as all the guests at the hotel. Roberto really delights and believes in healthy cooking still keeping in touch with his Italian roots which are Naples, and his life in Tuscany and Umbria. You make Pici Pasta Etruscan style (Briciole) which is something I have never heard of and continue on with dessert, and an entree. There are a few surprises along the way, one of which is great olive oil made on the property, proscuitto made from his pigs, and home made wine that is organic Sangiovese. The dining room is gorgeous and the seating is communal at a large and lovely glass and iron table in the salon of the Relais that was once a monastery. Stay here, if you can, there are only 10 rooms.
“Unbelievable place to stay in Tuscany”
5 Stars ***** Reviewed September 18, 2010
We stayed at Parco Fiorito while on our honeymoon in Italy. We both agreed that our stay there was the highlight of our trip. Our host, Roberto made us feel like part of the family and made it a priority to ensure we had a great time. And we did. We had a private cooking class with Roberto, during which we cooked dinner for the other guests at the hotel. We also enjoyed the private hot tub. Everything we ate there was delicious, and the wine was exceptional. We can't wait to go back! We recommend this place for anyone looking to enjoy the Tuscan country side.

What a wonderful place to relax, regenerate and learn to cook Italian. We had a wonderful experience getting to know Roberto and learning to cook handmade italian pasta, roast pork with cream sauce and chocolate explosion cake. When we go back we will definitely spend more time! We felt very spoiler when we left and will have very fond memories of our time at Relais Parco Fiorito.
“A feast of the senses...”
5 Stars ***** Reviewed July 23, 2014
We were warmly welcomed in the way you greet dear friends by Roberto Russo and his 'staff'. Relais Parco Firoito was authentically Tuscan and the beauty of the resort was natural and refreshing. We began our visit with a wonderful Prosecco and the 'feast of the senses' began! We dined on fabulous Tuscan cuisine in a fragrant and inviting pergola (the weather was perfect). A four course meal was savored by each guest as we exchanged our adventures of the day. The morning breakfast was lovingly prepared with natural ingredients from Roberto's own farm and the flavors were amazing. We felt like we stepped into another era where great food and stimulating conversation (a lost art) proceeded each dining experience. We ventured out each morning to explore and immerse ourselves in the areas of Tuscany, which were great day trips, always eager to return to our retreat! Whether I was sitting by the beautiful pool watching the sun set or lounging on the expansive patio, fully embracing the gorgeous geraniums and jasmine, I felt like I was in my very own haven. No one can prepare you for the experience which is both delightful and memorable. Do visit and enjoy your own 'feast of the senses'..
