The school sits a couple of hundred metres from the beach of Cefalù, in a small fishing community with a big tourist following! Besides the beautiful beach and crystal clear sea, the town is a very interesting destination for those who love art, culture and nature.
Cefalù is, in fact, home to an important UNESCO World Heritage site: the Arab-Norman Cathedral. The mediaeval old town oozes character from every stone: its small streets are closed to traffic, connecting miniature courtyards, ancient architecture, historic sights and shops of all kinds.
Also a foodie’s paradise, Cefalù has dozens of superb restaurants and trattorias.
Last but not least, while the Mediterranean Sea stretches out to the north, to the south the hills immediately start stretching up into the magnificent Madonie National Park. If a day at the beach is too sedate for you you’ll love the hills, mountains and rolling countryside that’s absolutely perfect for walks, hikes and outdoor sports. The less energetic will enjoy a day’s driving between the picturesque villages, with a good coffee or a refreshing gelato waiting in each.
In short, this is an unbeatable Sicilian setting in which to study Italian, all year round.
