If you wish to learn or improve Italian, then you should come and study in Italy. If you study Italian in Italy you will not only practice Italian in its authentic context, but also you will enjoy all of Italy’s charms: ancient art, varied beautiful landscapes, welcoming people, delicious food...
There are many regions in Italy, each one with its flavours and its unique perspective on Italian history, Italian lifestyle, Italian landscape...
Frankly, what do you think of when you think of holidays in Italy? Sea, sun, wild islands, ancient cathedrals, vine-planted hills, country houses amid olive groves, Greek temples, Roman theatres, delicious (and affordable...) typical Italian food and Italian wine, open air Italian opera concerts...
In Sicily we’ve got it all... plus many more things that make our region really unique. For example, Sicily is the birthplace of Italian poetry and Italian literature that first appeared here in the XII century. In the same fashion, the Italian novel and modern Italian prose from the late XIX up to the early XXI century have been shaped and reshaped by Sicilian writers such as Verga, Pirandello, Sciascia, Camilleri, and many others.
As German poet Goethe once put it: “Without Sicily, Italy leaves no image in the soul. Here is the key to everything.”
During your study holiday you will be free to discover new places on your own or with us, by participating to the visits, excursions and other outdoor activities we offer. Trapani is a laid-back seaside town the ideal size to walk or cycle through, between the breath-taking mount Erice and the wonderful Egadi Islands, next to the archaeological sites of Mozia, Segesta, Selinunte, the lively towns of Favignana, Marsala, Castellammare del Golfo, the wildlife of San Vito lo Capo, Scopello and Lo Zingaro.
Your study stay in Sicily with Scuola Virgilio can be part of a larger trip to Sicily. East of Trapani you can discover the capital Palermo, Agrigento and its Valley of Temples, Syracuse and the baroque Ragusa and Val di Noto, the volcanoes of the Aeolian Islands and awesome Mount Etna that dominates Catania and Taormina.
Having fun while learning is certainly possible in Italy! After spending some days in the most famous tourist spots of Rome and other places in the country, you may opt to extend your stay in Italy for a more productive activity—learning the Italian language in an equally interesting destination, Sicily. Since there are many accommodation sites in this area that are as cosy and affordable as Rome apartments, looking for a good place to stay while you spend your summer here is not a problem.
