      Teachers were good and hard working. The accommodation was in the right place and just what we asked for. Also we were grateful to be allowed use of the house on the last day and for the full day; we had a late evening flight.

      Groups in lessons were small, in my class we were only 4 students, only italian was spoken and therefore I learned a lot. I shared a huge apartment right in the center of the old town: The living room was looking out at the harbour and my room was looking out on the central piazza.
