The Italian Academy, Siracusa, Italy

What we like about the school

  • Rooftop terrace

The Italian Academy

The language school The Italian Academy was founded in Siracusa, Italy in 1984. Siracusa is a wonderful location to study in with its unique history, beautiful nature and warm-welcoming Sicilian atmosphere. Our school is set in a historic villa with an exclusive Mediterranean botanical garden in the city center. The main entrance is next to the world-famous Basilica and Catacombs of St. John, a few meters from the archaeological park and archaeological museum, within walking distance of the main shopping streets, the island of Ortygia and its beautiful beaches. A perfect starting point to explore Sicily and its culture.

The school address is: Via San Giovanni alle Catacombe, 96100 - Siracusa, Italy (see on map)
