Particularly in off-season, students should be advised up-front not to arrive on a Sunday, as connections to the nearest train station (Chiusi) become problematic.

A car makes it easier to explore the surroundings. It's better in the summer; the classes may be bigger but there is more action during the afternoon.

Other comments
We had a wonderful time. We enjoyed our lessons and being at the school very much. We loved Montepulciano and all the things we did such as visiting other hill top towns, going to Saint Antimo, exploring Chiusi and the Etruscan remains and all the delicious food, cheese and wine. We had an unforgetable experience and would highly recommend this to anyone.

my teacher Roberta for private lessons, also everything was extremey well organized, especially considering the director had no real idea before the first day's testing regarding the level of the students
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I started with the intensive, 6 hours a day, which I eventually found too much, despite how inviting it sounds, it's hard to absorb that much at one time.
Other comments
I really loved the school & would only suggest more excursions to some of the small villages around that area or even a trip to the termi at Rapolano or Bagno Vignoni. I was there in Oct. & perhaps the enrollment at that time was too low for such trips.
