Homestays with local families.
Living with a host family is an excellent opportunity to acquire a deeper understanding of Italy and its people. In fact, returning students often report that the homestay was one of the best aspects of their study abroad experience. Living with a host family allows students to interact daily with locals, build life-long bonds with members of the family, and experience first-hand the customs, cuisine and language they learn about in class.

- host family B&B (with only breakfast included every day in the program fee)
