Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The borgo and your visit to the city center
Everyone at the school spoke Italian and Italian only, which is very challenging for a total beginner, but great if you expect total immersion and need to learn Italian fast. I found teachers's very professorial and the course is very well designed and tough!

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I booked a 30-hour full immersion course, but due to availability I could only book 25 hours (4 group lessons in the morning + 1 hour with a private tutor in the afternoon). As the course is extremely intensive, I think the deal I got was much better than the one I chose. The private tutor was great at explaining things that I didn't understand and then I still had enough time to rest and study in the evening.
Other comments: I studied only 1 week at the school. If you want to start speaking Italian, I I would definitely recommend to take at least 2-3 weeks of this intensive course.
The excellent quality of teaching, the nice teachers, nice facilities, the harmonious atmosphere. In short: everything!

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Hard at first because you are only allowed to speak Italian in school!! Having now been on a course, I have to admit that it is a very effective way of making you understand.
Other comments: I cannot fault my experience at all. I stayed at a small hotel which is literally five minutes walk away from the school, Le Petit Hotel, which would certainly recommend. the city itself is great, the course was excellent and I met really nice people on my beginners course - I will certainly be going back.
friendliness, quality of teachers, the family side. I really loved the accommodation.
