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 teachers and the school staff are very nice and professional.
