The city of Verona

Have you ever thought about studying Italian in Italy?

Verona is the perfect place to learn Italian language while simultaneously immersing yourself in the art, culture, style and culinary traditions of Italian life.

Ponte Pietra, VeronaWalking through the streets of the city is a rich sensory experience as you pass by the palaces, churches, bridges and ancient stones that speak of an extraordinary history. Picture a great piazza with a Roman Amphitheatre at its centre. This is Piazza Bra, the heart of Verona. Here, between the porticoes and the ribbon of outdoor cafés, the Arena stands testament to the city's ancient past. On summer nights, the magical sounds of the open-air Opera performed here infuse the city with life and a sense of spectacle that is unique and unforgettable.

Surrounded by green hills and the meandering Adige River, Verona has a special relationship with nature. Only a short distance from Lake Garda with its fjord-like landscape and Mediterranean vegetation, the lake influences not only the climate of Verona but also the lifestyle of its people. Nestled in the rolling hills of Valpolicella (a region famed for its production of quality wines), Verona is perfumed by the surrounding countryside and the nearby alpine mountains - both of which, as they change through the seasons, affect a change upon the city centre.

The romance of Verona is palpable. The unexpected surprises found around each corner and at the end of every cobbled street; the beautiful vistas of the surrounding landscape that can be glimpsed between the ancient buildings; and the warm amber glow of lights in the evenings, instantly remind all who visit here of the magical love story Romeo and Juliet, set in Verona by Shakespeare in his famous 16th century play.

Verona's geographic position makes it the perfect departure point (by rail, road or air) from which to explore the rest of Italy. Excursions to other cities of art and culture can easily be arranged during your stay: you can reach Venice and Milan in one-and-a-half hours by train; TrentoPadovaMantova and Ferrara in one hour; Vicenza and Brescia in half-an-hour. A fast train will get you to Florence in three hours and Rome in five. Verona's airport, just a few kilometres from the centre of town, provides quick and easy access to the rest of Italy and Europe.
