The unspoilt island of Elba is the perfect choice for students who wish to combine a high-quality Italian course in Italy with a stunningly beautiful island location. The Italian language courses take place in Marciana Marina, where exquisite beaches and turquoise waters await. You can stay in a 4-star hotel, with private swimming pool and tennis courts, ideally located just 300m from the beach. All rooms in the hotel have private bathrooms.
This is a wonderful location in which to learn Italian, surrounded by the natural beauty of the island and immersed in the Italian language.
The lessons run at all levels, with an average of just five or six students per class. In addition to the course, students are offered an optional Italian cultural programme. This includes a welcome dinner, talks on Elba’s archaeology and history, boat trips to the glorious beaches of Pomonte, visits to the villas where Napoleon once lived, local market trips, guided walks in the countryside and a farewell dinner.
Fly to Elba. Students should take a taxi to their accommodation from Marina di Campo Airport (Elba). Taxi costs approx €20. Alternatively, fly to Pisa, then take a train to Piombino Marittima (approx €7) and then a ferryboat to Portoferraio (approx €8). Take a taxi to Marciana Marina.
