We are delighted to be working in collaboration with 121 Italian Tuition to offer some memorable educational trips to Italy for students that are learning Italian.
Combine a tour to these fabulous cities with a chance for the students to have some Italian tuition. You can opt to have private classes in your hotel in the mornings before exploring and sightseeing in the afternoon, alternatively the language teachers can take you on guided tours, accompany you on activities and encourage the use of Italian while out and about. We can design a tour that suits your needs and will give the students a real authentic Italian experience!
