The ABC School has been teaching the Italian Language and Culture to students from all over the world and has its main office in Florence since 1982.

In 2015 we opened a new office in the enchanting Baia del Silenzio (Bay of Silence) in Sestri Levante (Genoa), one of the most beautiful beaches in Italy.

Also known as the city with two seas, Sestri Levante is set on a promontory extended on the sea originating two bays, the Bay of Silence and the Bay of the Fairy Tales, so called in honor of Hans Christian Andersen who lived here 1833.

Sestri Levante offers many opportunities, including: nature trails with breathtaking views on the sea; sailing classes; diving centres as well as excursions to Cinque Terre and Portofino.
