Thanks to its harbour and strategic position, Desenzano del Garda has always been a meeting point that connected different areas of Italy. Its market has been immensely popular since the 16th century. In those days, cereals and grains were the town’s main exports.
Nowadays the market is still famous and lively. Every week, the promenade along the lake is lined of colourful stalls bursting with fresh produce and typical souvenirs of the area.
If you want to discover the soul of Desenzano, the market is the perfect place. Immerse yourself in the town’s daily life and dive into the local culture.
Italy has a vast and varied culinary heritage, and our local hosts are proud to share its hidden secrets.
You'll visit the local market with your Cesarina host, who will teach you all about how to select the best ingredients with the seasons.
Then, you'll return to their home to enjoy an Italian Aperitivo and then start your hands-on cooking class and prepare 3 regional Italian recipes (starter, pasta and dessert).You'll also learn how to make the iconic Bruschetta (/bruˈsketə/).

Ada was an excellent and fun host. Loved meeting her and her family over lunch.
My experience with Ada was fabulous. All the fresh vegetables at the market were wonderful. Ada explained what each were and how they were used…
