The School

CIAO ITALIA is a centre specialized  in teaching Italian to foreigners which was founded in 1996 by graduate teachers specialized in teaching Italian and who have been working in this field for more than 15 years. Our school is a small-sized school, ideal to ensure a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We take care of our students with particular attention and understanding in all their needs, with the aim of ensuring them a pleasant and profitable stay. The high level of our Italian courses is combined with an excellent quality-price ratio. We organize also many cultural activities (tours guided by an Art Historian, discounted prices for theatre, Opera, ballets and concerts, cooking courses for amateurs at a private house). Upon request, Ciao Italia can book different kinds of accommodation (family or apartment shared with other students) for all the duration of the course. Also the school offers scholarships and many discounts.
