Learn Italian and Experience Italy
Most people’s taste buds tingle at the mere thought of Italy, but this prolific nation is recognized worldwide for much more than an irresistible bowl of pasta. Italy is home to the Vatican City in Rome, the hub of the expansion of the Christian religion. In addition to the religious associations tied to Italy, some of the most widely read philosophers of all time resided there at one time or another. These esteemed thinkers include the likes of Machiavelli and Aquinas to mention just a few. Students who study on our programs in Italy may find themselves pondering works of these Italian philosophers in an outdoor café along the Arno River or along one of the sunny Mediterranean beaches that comprise over two thirds of Italy’s border. Groves of olive trees and meandering streams fill the countryside in the south, while mountainous peaks elevate in the horizon of northern Italy. The temperate Mediterranean climate is only to be outdone by an even warmer feeling of family atmosphere that lives in the hearts of all Italians. Whether you spend a month or year in Italy, it won’t take long to discover why this bold nation has had so much influence on the state of the western world.
