Italian language courses by the sea

Italian studies in Italy!

Italian language courses by the seaThe "Piccola Università Italiana" was founded in 1993 as “Caffè Culturale”. In 2004 the name was changed to “Piccola Università Italiana” as our courses are now authorized by the Italian Ministry of Education, of University and of Research.

The school aims to be a place where students from all over the world can meet. Our school has become a place where you can get to know interesting people of different ages, communicate, and exchange opinions and ideas - this is exactly what the name "Piccola Università" suggests.

Not only does a highly professional school, located right on the toe of Italy's "boot," await lovers of the Italian language, but also a seaside village, Tropea, where study and leisure activities complement one another perfectly. Besides its cultural attractions and magical atmosphere, the "pearl of Calabria" offers many opportunities for relaxing.

It is not only the availability of numerous sports facilities that makes Tropea so attractive, but also its ideal location, which allows one to make many interesting trips, for instance to the fabulous nature reserve in the Sila mountains, to the volcanic island of Stromboli, or to culturally rich Taormina in Sicily.

Therefore if you
* expect good teaching in small classes (3-6 persons) and
* prefer a unique destination to mass tourism,
you will love Tropea.
