Make the most of your opportunity to visit every viccolo, every vico, every sight! Napoli is fascinating. Eat as much pizza as you like, as you will soon walk it off! Make friends with your class mates. Ours were fabulous! And take the cooking classes..molto bene!

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Learning basic grammar before attending a course would be a good idea.
Other comments
Teachers seemed to expect that we had already learned basic grammar and that our vocabulary already was sufficient for conversation and this was a beginners' class. There should be some demands for American college students to make actual progress in their language studies. The ones in my class had already had two two-week courses in Florence and Rome before the course in Naples and they started again at a beginners' level course.

The classrooms are a little bit sparse. A bigger blackboard and real tables (instead of the flimsy "chair-tables") would be beneficial.

Naples seems dangerous at first, but it isn't. It is not dangerous at all.

The school is located in the city center, so I could go after school for the new experiences. Next to the school there are three metro station and many bus stops.

The teachers are excellent. The class size was small - 6 the first week, 4 the second week, therefore individual conversation was optimal.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I recommend the individual class to reinforce what is taught in the group lesson or get specialized instruction. Do not miss the tours with Bruno. Naples is a great city with a fascinating history, 1st class museums and great food everywhere. Easy and fun to explore by foot or public transportation.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Be aware that the school, most classrooms, and school apartments do NOT have air-conditioning and summer in Napoli is brutal!!! Also, whatever floor they say your apartment is on, add 1 and then double it.

The quality of teaching depends (as always) on the commitment of the teacher. When the teachers change (as it was the case in my class), you have the chance to get a top teacher, of which there are a few at this school.
