Learn Italian in Tuscany

Buongiorno! For centuries, Tuscany has attracted people from all over the world to marvel at its art, culture and stunning landscapes. Tuscany’s charming towns, sweeping countryside and gastronomic delights have made it a firm favourite with Flavours guests. And, as the birthplace of Italian, what could be a more inspiring place to learn the local language?

Enjoy trips to explore nearby towns, like Arezzo or San Gimignano with its unique medieval towers, where you can soak up the atmosphere with some sight-seeing or shopping at the local markets. What’s more, with meals in authentic trattorias and the chance to enjoy a private wine tasting in a local winery – there are endless opportunities to try out the Italian you have learnt!

I loved holidaying with a small group of people who share the same enthusiasm for learning Italian.
