Additional information
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.
The location of the school in the city centre, and in a lively district. Quality teaching Quality of premises Mix of nationalities Adjustment to teaching level

Other comments: 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.
The teachers, their approach to teaching and learning and their positive attitudes.
