Amazing cooking lesson in Padua – exceeded my expections!I booked this Market Walk and Cooking Lesson in Padua with Venice Day Trips for our family of 3 (me, my husband and 22 yr. old daughter). I didn’t know exactly what to expect, but we were all really pleased with the day. We met up with our guide Rachel in the main piazza and she took us through the outdoor fruit & veg market to point out what was in season. This was really interesting and we took lots of great photos…
