The place is great, beautiful town and the people at the school were kind. The best thing was the singing driver who brought me to the airport on Sunday morning.
Maybe it would be good to inform students that the price doesn't include neither the welcome evening in restaurant or any of the trips (in case you take transfer). Students should be told at the beginning that any political discussions are not welcome (no Trump, Merkel, Berlusconi, etc) They get emotional, start to speak English and ruin the class :)

The teachers who gave homework and textbooks for level A1 and A 2. Great headmaster, Antonio. He organized sightseeing trips and dinners in high-quality restaurants in a great way.
A small, cozy school in the city center.

The place. The environment and especially Professor Alessandra.
The apartment was nice but my room was made for monks, not even a closet for my clothes.
