Rich in history, Italy is one of the world’s most popular and sophisticated destinations. Magnificent art and architecture are seen throughout the country, along with breathtaking landscapes and panoramas. LanguageCorps offer two locations in Italy: Florence, the capital of Tuscany, and Sardinia, an island about 120 miles west of the Italian peninsula.
In Florence, the region is characterized by beautiful landscapes and exquisite cuisine. The city itself maintains one of the highest concentrations of art masterpieces in the world, from Michaelangelo’s David to the Duomo. The training center is located in Piazza della Repubblica, just a short walk from the world-famous Duomo. Set in the historical center of the city, it is a 5-minute walk to Piazza della Signoria, the Uffizi Gallery, Pitti Palace, the Baptisry and Santa Maria Novella Church. Piazza della Repubblica is famous for its outdoor cafés and bustling street life, surrounded by hotels, restaurants, bookstores and famous designer boutiques. The training center facilities include several multi-purpose classrooms, offices, student lounge, library, and a terrace overlooking the historical city center. Satellite TV, computers and an ESL Library are on the premises.
On Sardinia, the training center is located in Sassari. The city of Sassari is located in the northwestern part of the island, a mere 15 minutes away from some of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean. A university town with a population of 150,000 people, it has all of the amenities of the large city while preserving the feel of a small town. A smattering of influences can be seen in its Catalan-Gothic, Romanesque and Baroque architecture. During the months of July through September, Sassari has a lively nightlife complete with outdoor concerts, exhibitions and a wide variety of leisure-time activities.
