By the way… Why learn Italian in Italy and why learn Italian in Sicily?

If you wish to learn or improve Italian, then you should come and study an Italian Course in Sicily. If you study an Italian Course in Sicily you will not only practice Italian in its authentic context, but also you will enjoy all of Italy’s charms: ancient art, varied beautiful landscapes, welcoming people, delicious food…

As German poet Goethe once put it: “Without Sicily, Italy leaves no image in the soul. Here is the key to everything.”

Our Italian school in Sicily in Trapani, Sicily

Set on the westernmost tip of Sicily, among fishing towns and breath-taking seascapes, Trapani is the Italian city closest to Africa.

During Pre-history, Trapani was but a cluster of small islands and rocks that in time have been made into one strip of land, until they formed the sickle-shaped peninsula we know today.

Apart from its shape, Trapani will surprise you because of its position, between sea and mountain, that is between Mount Erice and the waters where the Egadi islands rise–Favignana, Levanzo et Marettimo.


In Trapani the weather is mild during the short winter that ends early, by the end of February. Summer comes early too, typically by the end of May. In summer the weather is hot but tempered by the sea’s and the wind’s action. In fact, the heat in Trapani is never muggy, never too hot thanks to the breeze that blows constantly from the sea.

In July and August, the average temperature is around 30°, while the water temperature is over 20°.
