LEARN ITALIAN IN TUSCANY
Tuscany is the region of Italy where Dante Alighieri was born, the great medieval poet known as Father of the Italian language. In fact Dante's Tuscan language was the basis on which Italian has become the language of our nation, consequently the Italian you learn at school is the same language you can hear people speak outside the classroom. Tuscany is the only Italian region where this normally happens, not because Tuscans speak better than the other Italians, but since the Italian language, for cultural and historic reasons, is based on Tuscan.
Then which part of Italy can be better than Tuscany to study Italian? And besides, the beauty and variety of the natural landscape (the hills with cypress-trees, sunflower fields, the sea and the mountains) together with the richness in art and history of its cities like Lucca, Firenze, Siena, Pisa, Arezzo make Tuscany a unique destination to learn Italian and for a journey which will remain impressed in one's memory.
And of course, it is not by chance that Tuscany is the cradle of the Italian civilization from the Etruscan age, and that very many great persons of the Italian culture are of Tuscan origin: Dante, Petrarca, Boccaccio, Michelangelo, Leonardo, Brunelleschi, Botticelli, Galileo, and more recently Puccini, Bocelli, Benigni, to name just a few - all great artists who have made and still make, each in his own field of activity, the cultural greatness of Italy.
And how about the people? In Tuscany we are friendly, ironic, likeable and "alla mano", and we can introduce you in the most genuine way to our passions: cooking, wines, music, nature...
In conclusion, learning Italian in Tuscany is an experience combining all the good qualities of a vacation in this splendid and lucky region: and especially in Lucca, unlike other bigger and more renowned cities of art, you will find a relaxed atmosphere and a pace of life that is still leisurely.
