The weekly programme offers plenty of opportunities to immerse in Italian culture and lifestyle. Guided visiting tours in Trieste, visiting museums, castle tours, movie evenings with Italian films and seminars on Italian culture and Italian customs are an integral part of the cultural programme.

In the area of “Le Venezie” (Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, Veneto and Trentino) are numerous UNESCO World Heritage Sites, ensuring a rich and varied excursion programme.

The classical tour is Venice. On a full day excursion you will discover the “City of Gondolas” with its art treasures and architectural wonders. Further important cultural sites are Aquileia, the Lombard town Cividale, Udine, Paladian Villas and much more. Wine and “Prosciutto” tastings, bicycle tours, boat tours and nature hikes with the WWF will round off the activity programme, which are offered to supplement the Italian language courses.
