The high level of teaching in our courses is guaranteed by the training and experience of our teachers. Moreover, our school is recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education, the Swedish CSN and is member of ASILS, the Association of Schools of Italian as a Second Language that guarantees the quality of the courses.

CITY

A university town of great historical and cultural interest, famous for its Leaning Tower and ancient sea republic, Pisa is distinguished by the youth of the population, its proximity to the sea, which can be reached by bus or bicycle, and excellent links with the whole of Italy and the world, given that the largest airport in Tuscany and a rail link of primary importance is there.

In addition to the sea, there is also the nature reserve of Migliarino-Massaciuccoli-San Rossore, one of the largest and most interesting national parks in Italy. Pisa has an intense cultural life throughout the year, but the month of June is particularly rich in folkloric events: the famous Luminara is also held then.

Sea and Sport

From June to September, our students have special discounts at a friendly beach resort at Tirrenia, a seaside town only 15 Km by bus from the school. In the same town, fond of golf can play on two picturesque courses (9 holes and 18 holes) 200 meters from the sea.
Horse-riding, tennis, free climbing, body building can also be practiced.

ACCOMMODATION

Our secretary offers free and complete assistance to all students regularly enrolled in the search and reservation of accommodation requested. Our accommodation is carefully selected from what is available on the market. Generally, given our policy of keeping down costs, our accommodation is of medium standard, but such as to guarantee our students a pleasant stay. A higher standard of accommodation can be provided on request.

1. Single or double room in flat with use of kitchen and bathroom.
