Program Information:
There’s something a little mystical about Sorrento, Italy, a beautiful town hugging the cliffs that overlook a fishing port and Mt Vesuvius. Located just 20 miles south of Naples, Sorrento is known as the gateway to the Amalfi Coast. You’ll wake up every morning in this paradise by the sea, and you’ll study at the immensely popular Sant’Anna Institute. The Institute’s experiential learning model means classes will be fun and engaging. Dabble in learning Italian so you can chat with fellow travelers as you catch the train to Rome or the ferry to the Islands of Capri and Ischia.

Start getting excited about:
  • Southern Italian culture, unique to the country
  • Small class sizes give you one-on-one attention
  • Trips to Pompeii, Capri and Mt. Vesuvius
  • Markets selling art famous to the region, including ceramics, lacework and intarsio
  • Italian language classes in a supportive, friendly community
Location:
The gateway to the Amalfi Coast, the town of Sorrento is easily described as a paradise by the sea. From Sorrento, you can catch the train to Rome, take a ferry to the islands of Capri and Ischia, or reach Naples 20 miles away.

This famous, quaint city in Campania is a popular tourist destination, but don't let that fool you. The small city and friendly people make it easy to quickly become a member of the community. Beyond the tourists, make time to wander the citrus-lined streets, saunter through the Villa Communale Park, or just enjoy the sweeping views of the Bay of Naples and Mt. Vesuvius in the distance.

Hiking trails abound for the mountain adventurer looking to conquer the Amalfi coastline. A beautiful bay with incredible beaches and sheltered coves lures any water lover. Sorrento is the producer of Limoncello, delicious food, and stunning sunsets. After we help you acclimate to the Mediterranean lifestyle, you'll have the confidence to roam the city like a true local.
