EXCURSIONS

Students staying with us for two weeks or longer can choose to go on a supervised cultural day trip with our staff to Rome or Florence.

Discover Italy’s cultural heritage

Day trips take place each Sunday and bring students to the most important historical, artistic and archeological sites of each city. All day trips include a guided tour in English, lunch in a typical Italian trattoria and an afternoon walking tour of the city center.
