Parliamo Italiano in Italia

Discover Umbria this year with a week-long Language Adventure

Two special weeks available:

Tour A: July 20 – 28, 2018
Tour B: August 26- Sept 23, 2018 offers a spectacular week long tour package filled with opportunities to hone your Italian language skills. Explore the fabled cities of  Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto, Spoleto, to name but a few; interact with locals at social events; enjoy a truffle hunt; attend a town festival; and much more.

The core of the week long adventure will be 5 morning lessons with Italian teachers – Intermediate to Advanced Beginners. Then by stepping into a living classroom, the real adventure begins. You’ll savor Umbrian cuisine and our delicious Sagrantino wine; practice how to order off the menu; stroll intimate villages and ask for directions; visit local markets and shop for food; meet artisans and purchase world famous ceramics in Deruta; read a poem or passage from a famous novel — all in Italian. And all the while you’ll discover our Etruscan, Roman, Medieval, and Renaissance heritage; visit glorious churches and museums, a medieval abbey; and enjoy breathtaking views all along the way.
Accommodations at the 17-century Palazzo Fiumi-LaPlaca in the walled town of Bettona, home of  your American host and the perfect base from which to explore Umbria.
