When it comes to studying Italian in the Eternal City, language schools come a dime a dozen. But very few come quite as close as making you feel a part of an Italian family or community as the Scuola Leonardo da Vinci language school in Rome. Want to perfect your Italian and make friends from all over the world? The Scuola Leonardo da Vinci is the best place to do it. Last year alone, the school hosted students of all ages from 98 different countries all over the world. Located in the heart of the centro storico in Piazza dell’Orologio and just a stone’s throw away from the bellissima Piazza Navona, one can take Italian language classes of all levels. Classes range from a week long to up to six months; perfect for those looking to pick up some survivor Italian while on vacation or perfect their language skills while in Rome on business.
The Scuola Leonardo da Vinci was founded in 1977 in Florence. Its Rome location opened in 1984 and is run by director Pier Alberto Merli. The school has two other locations in Siena and Milan as well. Scuola Leonardo da Vinci also assists students with housing during their stay in Rome. Whether you’re looking for a room in a shared apartment, private accomodations or want to experience a slice of Roman life by living with an Italian family, this language school has you covered. Want to take your Italian skills to the next level?
The school also organizes a number of social events like dinners, movie nights, cooking classes and other typical notti Romane out on the town where you can put into practice your italiano outside of the classroom. Take a stroll past the school on any given day and you’ll see students spilling out in the piazza practicing their italiano and witness the community atmosphere that makes Leonardo da Vinci so popular. In fact, it’s no surprise why New York Times best selling author Elizabeth Gilbert, who wrote Eat, Pray, Love, chose to study here during her Roman sabbatical.
