Viaggia con noi e impara l’Italiano!

In 2013, the ICC launched an exciting new service: Italian classes in Italy! Led by an experienced ICC board member, a small group of Minnesota adult students has traveled to Sorrento, a coastal town in southern Italy, to study the Italian language and visit its beautiful surroundings. A group returned to Sorrento in 2014, and in the fall of 2016, a third group studied in Lucca, Italy, and explored the surrounding area.

The ICC partnered with a well-respected language school for non-native speakers of all levels of proficiency. A detailed 15-day itinerary included Italian classes each morning, as well as an amazing selection of cultural, archeological and cooking excursions throughout the area. Also included in the package were hotel accommodations and a complete breakfast each day. 

IN 2017, IT'S SICILY!!!!

We will travel to Italy again in September/October 2017. This year the group is headed to Cefalu, a gorgeous town, on the island of Sicily, and not far from Palermo. As with our previous trips, students will enjoy learning Italian in the morning and traveling to the nearby towns and attractions in the afternoon.  A two week itinerary has been planned, commencing on Saturday, September 30 through Saturday, October 14, 2017. A board member will lead the group. The trip is limited to 10 participants, on a first-come, first-served basis. The first 10 spaces filled within 24 hours!  NOTE:  If we can confirm an additional 2-3 participants, we will be able to enlarge the group and add additional space.

Our trips are limited to ICC members – become a member today and join others on this fun and memorable trip!
