I have recently returned from my 4th visit to the Venice Italian School, with 3 friends. Once again we had a really enjoyable and useful week, with some very interesting lessons including plenty of opportunity to improve our speaking, as well as lots of grammar practice. The lessons were tailored to our requirements, and included a number of topical issues,... More

After one week at Venice Italian School last year I booked two this year. Both years the teaching was excellent. The School assess your level well (I am a relative beginner having had two years of 'app' training ony). Not only do they assess your level, and stretch you to improve, the lessons take account of your learning style. This... More

This is a language school with a difference. Each student's needs are carefully considered and the content and style of teaching adapted accordingly. The school is small and personal and is able to take an approach which would be difficult in a large, more commercially-run school. I bumped into several British people who, like me, said that they'd learned more... More

Great school, warm and friendly atmosphere with excellent teaching. My Italian improved significantly after just three mornings! Would definitely recommend this school!

The teaching is excellent and my week there was a joy.. It is fun and the people are extremely welcoming, helpful and kind. I would recommend this language course to everyone who wants to improve their Italian. It is in a lovely square in Venice - not smart but not swamped with tourists like San Marco. There is a lovely... More

I've been teaching myself Italian for years and am pretty conversant with the basics of grammar, with a fair vocabulary. But I had no opportunity for speaking, and that's what I wanted out of this class. The sessions have been just what I needed. The instructors (I've had both Lucia and Diego) bring prepared exercises to class (I'm having one-on-one... More

I have studied at five different schools in Italy, all of which were good, but Venice Italian School undoubtedly tops the list. I’ve now studied here on two occasions. I have participated in both small group classes and 1-to-1 sessions. The lessons are well-structured and geared emphatically towards practical conversational Italian, appropriate to the level of study, and the classes... More

My wife and I attended the Venice Italian School for six months and we loved it. The great strength of the school is that it rightly focuses on the practicalities of speaking Italian. Grammar is important but unlike the other schools in Venice there is also a focus on pronunciation and spoken Italian. Lessons are hugely enjoyable and the atmosphere... More

Before booking a one week individual course I checked the reviews of the school and the excellent reviews were not wrong. Diego was very helpful when booking the course. My daily lessons, first with Jacopo and then Lucia flew by. What I really enjoyed is that the teaching is very much geared to conversation. The learning techniques are clever and... More

I was recently in Venice for two weeks and had pre-booked five one-on-one conversational lessons with Diego. I specifically wanted conversational lessons as I have studied Italian for four years, but only once a week here in Auckland. The opportunity to speak and practice in Venice seemed perfect. And at the same time be able to report back to my... More

Neighbourhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
