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!

All of the four teachers I had teaching me were very good.
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.

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.
