The Apennine Peninsula has much to offer: historically, culturally, scenically, and of course gastronomically. Most cities have retained their historical core and thus at times you feel carried back to a long forgotten time.
Language study in Italy:
Italy has always been the subject of longing. Whereas in the Middle Ages the armies of northern kings with their soldiers constituted the land’s share of “visitors to Italy”, followed by pilgrims to Rome or travelling through Italy to the “Holy Land”, travellers to Italy for whom the cultural experience was the prime motivation joined them in the 17th century. Despite its impressive history, which has shaped all of Europe, Italy has become modern, although its natural beauty, wealth and historic heritage have remained unchanged where one would expect.
Even though all roads reputedly lead to Rome, you should make some stops on your journey to the “Eternal City”: the Italians are proud of their regional sights and specialities and offer a warm welcome. The charm and hospitality of the “Garden of Europe” will enchant you, quite apart from the cultural variety that Italy offers. For there is nothing in Italy that you cannot find in Europe’s upturned boot: Popes, painters, the finest espresso, calcio??, excellent poets and lyricists, political naïveté and self glorifying potentates. Italy’s dream like scenic variety seem tailor made for a novel and virtually no one can resist the lure of 3000 years of history, culture and gastronomy.
