Shared Apartment

The school offers shared apartments throughout Taormina with single and double rooms. Shared apartments have a communal kitchen and bathroom(s). We recommend shared apartments as a great way to facilitate social / personal interactions with fellow students.

Host Family

Available with single or double rooms, we have a limited number of families, couples and single adults who make available rooms in their residence. Many are available with boarding options (meals), which include breakfast only, half board (breakfast & lunch or dinner) or full board (breakfast & lunch & dinner). Obviously this accommodation option requires a greater commitment not only on the part of the property owner, but also on the part of the student. It is well suited to those who want a more intensive learning esperience and additional daily practice speaking Italian.

Single-use Apartment

In a single use apartment you don't have to share the facilities with other students. This is the perfect option for those students who want privacy and complete independence.

The city is lovely. The apartments are big. There are lots of opportunities for practising oral and listening but less focus on grammar. Stay at least two weeks is a must.

Learn Italian in Taormina, a pretty town on the east coast of Sicily, with a population of approximately 11,000 inhabitants. Since the 19th century, the town has been a very popular tourist destination due to its beautiful sandy beaches and pleasant climate. The city is located just a 45 minute drive away from Mount Etna, Europe's largest active volcano. Whilst you learn Italian in Taormina, we recommend that you take an Excursion or trek around the foothills of the volcano. During the summer, many events take place here, including pop and classical music concerts in the Ancient Greek theatre.
