Would you like to learn Italian in Italy? Our school is the solution!

For many it is considered one of the most beautiful buildings in Verona's historical centre with its great arching front door, majestic entrance lined with Doric columns and elegant courtyard decorated with statues of female allegories. The interior of the school was renovated in 2006 in order to offer students an inviting environment that is at once modern and functional whilst remaining welcoming and comfortable for learning. The classrooms where we hold our Italian classes are characterized by a minimalist style and are spacious and bright, creating the perfect tranquil atmosphere that is conducive to study. Our aim is to provide students with Italian lessons and courses that meet their specific requirements, offering the highest possible quality in an ambient that is comfortable and quiet. In addition, our students can benefit from our varied services and educational facilities to study Italian in even greater detail. To that end our school offers not only classroom study but also a student room, an internet point, a library, an Italian film library and a recreation area managed by the students. The school is located in the historical centre of Verona just a short stroll from Piazza delle Erbe, one of the town's most beautiful piazzas which was once the home of the ancient Roman Forum. Located in the absolute heart of the city, amidst prestigious shops and modern cafés, LINGUA IT is close to all services and is easily reached by public transport. Verona is the perfect place to learn Italian language while simultaneously immersing yourself in the art, culture, style and culinary traditions of Italian life.Walking through the streets of the city is a rich sensory experience as you pass by the palaces, churches, bridges and ancient stones that speak of an extraordinary history. Picture a great piazza with a Roman Amphitheatre at its centre. This is Piazza Bra, the heart of Verona. Here, between the porticoes and the ribbon of outdoor cafés, the Arena stands testament to the city's ancient past. On summer nights, the magical sounds of the open-air Opera performed here infuse the city with life and a sense of spectacle that is unique and unforgettable.
