Study Abroad in Italy this summer.


May 25 - June 26, 2020

Verona is the perfect city to study Italian and enjoy the culture with a synthesis of everything that makes Italy famous: art, history, beauty, nature and gastronomy.

This mid-sized city is easy to navigate and a short trip from popular destinations including Florence, Padua, Venice, Mantua, Milan, Bologna, and Torino. Students combine intense language study and an immersive cultural experience.
