Residence

If you want to stay in a very special accommodation, you can book a single or a twin room with private bath in one of the most charming cloisters in the city.
 
The residence is located in a ancient wineyard in Giudecca with hundreds of olive trees. It has 23 rooms with view, wi fi access. You share the kitchen and comfortable TV rooms and can make use of laundry machines. Giudecca is the ideal place if you want to be near the historical centre, in a fashion area among students and artists, controlling accommodation expenditure.

Giudecca is the picturesque island in front of the Zattere; a continuous waterbus service links the island to the historical centre and so it can be also reached easily from Piazzale Roma and the railway station. In Giudecca you can find some of the artistic masterpieces of Venice, such as the Redentore church and the Molino Stucky.

Shared Apartment

You can stay in an apartment in a single room and share the kitchen, bathroom and living room with Italians. This can be a single person, couple or family. It is the best way to enjoy daily life and improve your linguistic skills. 

In the apartment you can find all that you need; bed linen, washing machine, TV. Staying with Italians is the ideal solution if you don’t fear immersion in a language different from your own, and you want to have an experience that will definitely enrich you culturally. Double rooms are only available for students who enroll together and attend courses during the same period.

Learn Italian in Venice, a city so beautiful that it is almost indescribable. Venice is one of the most famous cities in the world owing to the small canals which cross the city and create a unique setting which only adds atmosphere to Venice's 1,400 years of already fascinating history. The historic city centre can only be accessed by water or foot meaning that the best way to explore Venice is to take time and wander its intertwined streets by foot.
