Salerno is ideally located, right on the Amalfi coast, with beautiful towns such as Sorrento, Positano and Amalfi just a short drive way. Salerno itself has escaped mass tourism, and is therefore ‘authentically Italian’, with a beautiful historic centre, as well as long seafront promenade, with magnificent views over the Gulf of Salerno. Due to Salerno’s marvellous year-round climate, people here enjoy the ‘typically Italian’ outdoor lifestyle which this beautiful weather makes possible. Where better to learn Italian than in somewhere so Italian, in such a beautiful location and virtually untouched by mass tourism.
Our school in Salerno
Our Italian language school in Salerno is located in the centre of the city, on the seafront promenade, in one of the most beautiful streets in Salerno. The school is in an antique ‘Palazzo’, a magnificent and well preserved historic building, giving several of the classrooms incredible sea views over the Gulf of Salerno. All accommodation is within walking distance of the school.

Staying in an Italian host family helps you learn Italian, as well as being a great way to meet Italians and discover the Italian way of life.
