Study Abroad - Passport to Italy: The Enchanted Amalfi Coast


Program Description

This month long program is designed for students who wish to learn/improve the Italian language, know more about the Italian culture and experience the Italian way of living. The Italian “dolce vita” will change your perspective and attitude, and you’ll become more international and definitely more Italian.

Location Description

The magical Amalfi Coast will be the perfect location for this unforgettable trip. Salerno, the city where you will live for four weeks, is a combination of unique emotions. It is the beauty of the coast. It is the charm of an ancient history. It is the scent of an unspoiled environment. The marvelous littoral - made up of beaches, cliffs and enchanting caves, and facing a sea that is a kaleidoscope of colors - enchant the visitor for the splendor of this place.
