Free time and excursions

The school organizes a half day guided tour each week in the most beautiful artistic or natural sites, for example: Urbino, San Marino, le grotte di Frasassi, Ancona, Gubbio, Rimini.  We also offer food and wine workshops (visit to a farm which produces oil, wine and pasta or pizza making lesson). These activities are free of charge and their cost is included in the price of the Italian language course.

On Saturdays students are free to do their own activities while on Sundays the school organizes optional full day excursions to various beautiful artistic, historical towns and seaside resorts in the Marches and central Italy: Florence, Ravenna, Perugia, Assisi, Riviera del Conero, Bologna…

The town of Mondavio with its surroundings offers students the opportunity to practice many sports: horseackriding, tennis, and swimming. Finally the sea is within easy reach: it just takes 15-20 minutes to get there.

Our activities

Even if you are in Mondavio to learn the language, you probably won’t want to spend all your time studying!  You can spend enjoyable afternoons in the company of others and enrich your knowledge of the Marche region and its traditions.  Whoever would like to do so with us can participate in our cultural programs.
