We organise trips to Italy to complement our courses in the UK.

If you are an existing Vivere l'italiano student this is a great way to practice the Italian you have learnt with us, and if you are a new student, it's a wonderful opportunity to start learning, or to build on your existing knowledge of Italian in beautiful Italy!
