Italian Language School in Sardinia, Italy
Location and Facilities
The school is located in Alghero, a picturesque seaside town
located on the northwestern tip of the island of Sardinia. Though it has undergone
numerous cultural influences, Alghero is mainly known for its Catalan feel,
which is evidenced in its Catalan street names and in the dialect still spoken today by a
handful of its inhabitants.
The school is near the public gardens in an
attractive, modern building in the centre with air conditioned rooms, a computer lab with Internet access (each student guaranteed 1 hours
access per day) and air-conditioning.
As well as being able to study
& learn Italian in Alghero, you will have the opportunity to participate in a wealth
of leisure-time activities: sunbathing on its beautiful white beaches, snorkeling in its
crystal clear waters, mountain-biking along its trails through Mediterranean scrub brush,
scuba-diving, hiking, sailing to places accessible only by wind-driven vessels, wine- and
food-tasting in its delicious restaurants, strolling along the wide promenade on the
lido mare, having an aperitif in an outdoor café overlooking the port.
Dont forget that you will have plenty of time for all of these activities while
There are excursions to see the breath-taking sea caves Grotte di Nettuno,
which are accessible by authorized vessels departing daily from the main port or from
Capo Caccia, or by a cliff-hanging walk down the breath-taking stairs (only
654 steps!) Esacala del Cabirol. There are also numerous points of historical
and cultural interest, such as the intriguing ruins left behind by the mysterious
Neolithic Nuraghic civilization, which you can explore at the
Palmavera or Anghelu Ruju complexes. Equally interesting are the
bastioni, the high fortified walls dotted with lookout towers that encircle
the citys western waterfront and southern flank
