The charming Perugia, characterized by a medieval and Etruscan architecture, is the ideal setting to immerse oneself in Italian culture and traditions.There are two centers in the old town that offer Italian courses. These aim to offer much more than a holiday, a true experience. These two centers are:
1) The University for Foreigners, inside Palazzo Gallenga in piazza Fortebraccio, that is one of the oldest institutions to learn the Italian language. This university, dating back to the XVIII century, Italian courses at different levels: beginners, intermediate, advanced. There are also lessons on culture, cooking, art, opera and Umbrian religious art.
2) Comitato Linguistico, a prestigious association situated just a few meters from the heart of the center of Perugia (via Cacciatori delle Alpi, Perugia) which aims to spread the language and the Italian culture and to commend the region’s traditions. Teachers are all qualified and experienced native speakers. The school promotes several courses, from standard to intensive up to the individual ones. It also has cultural activities to help You to live the real Perugia.
Combining a stay in our elegant, romantic apartments for rent in the Villa and attendance of one of these courses permit the tourist to approach not only the Italian language and culture but rather to live like a local.
