Program Description:

This month long program is designed for students who wish to improve on the Italian language, learn more about the Italian culture and experience the Italian way of living. Once you’ve experienced “la dolce vita,” you’ll find that your perspective and attitude will be more international and definitely more Italian.

Location Description:

The enchanting medieval city of Perugia in central Italy will be the location of our program. Because of its central location, Perugia is a train ride away from Rome, Florence and Bologna. Perugia is also the home of one of Italy’s oldest universities – Universita’ pergli Stranieri – where the participants will be studying, as well as the delicious Perugina chocolate!! During the month of July in the city of Perugia, there is also the world famous Umbria Jazz Festival.


Students will be sharing apartments (two students per room). Single rooms or studio apartments are available at an additional cost.
