A language holiday should be an integrated experience of learning for you.
We attach great importance to this!

These activities form the framework for your language holiday in Italy at the Piccola Universita Italiana. Those who like doing sport don't have to go without during their language holidays.


The location of your language centre is very important for your language holiday experience, but what plays an even more important role is the quality of the language school itself. The state- approved Quality Control of Italian language schools in Italy is carried out by the
