If you want to learn Italian in a location where the old traditions of Italian hospitality still live on, then learn Italian in Salerno! Salerno is typically Italian in every way, and is well-loved by our students for the friendliness of the people and the traditional, stress-free way of life.
Salerno is right on the famous Amalfi Coast, known for its clean, emerald green waters, hidden bays and spotless beaches. The city is ideally located for exploring the Amalfi Coast, and many of our students do so after morning classes, catching a boat from Salerno’s harbour to the beautiful towns and beaches of Capri, Ravello and Positano.
Walking in the pedestrianised medieval city centre or along the city’s seafront promenade is a pleasure, especially in late evening when the streets are bustling with locals. With good weather year round, you can enjoy life outdoors, joining the school excursions to Pompeii, Herculaneum and other Greek and Roman sites, exploring the multitude of beaches and picturesque villages along the coast, or taking a day out to visit Naples.
You can choose from a variety of Italian courses at our school in Salerno, taught by fully qualified and experienced native Italian teachers.
