Storytellers Rome and Storytellers Florence are monthly English language oral storytelling evenings we began hosting back in 2015 in Rome and 2018 in Florence. In Rome, the event takes place outdoors in warm weather at The Beehive and at Zem Yoga Studio in colder/wetter months. In Florence, the event is held at Todo Modo bookshop. A theme is decided on either by us or by a member poll and then people attending the event are invited to share a story based on the theme. Participation is not required to attend. It's a few hours away from our screens, creating connections, friendships and community in the sharing. 



Walks with Linda

What about a person instead of an app?

With 20+ years in hospitality, travel & tourism in Rome and Italy in general, Linda has a wealth of information she freely shares with guests. For a more curated and personal experience, Linda is available for private walks of Rome and Orvieto. For historical or more academically minded tours, we recommend and work with several licensed and authorised guides and small-group walking tour companies. We can recommend companies that offer everything from food to sketching to scooter tours. Send us an email for more information or check at reception during your stay.

Cooking Classes

Steve teaches cooking classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tuesdays at 5:30pm is pizza-making class. He shows you how to make the dough properly, how to top it authentically, then bakes a pre-risen dough showing you the tricks of how to get great results from a conventional oven.

€25 for Beehive guests and €35 for outside guests.

Thursdays at 6:00pm Steve gives a hands-on pasta making class. Everyone makes their own dough, rolls it out and cuts it into tagliatelle by hand. Steve shows you how to make few simple sauces to go with it - then everyone eats!

€30 for Beehive guests and €45 for outside guests.

Steve can also schedule private cooking classes for small groups or families either at The Beehive or in-home.
