Event description
Do you want to dive 2 weeks in the fantastic sea of culture? Do you want to walk through a world of culture, fun, traditions, delicious food and amazing wine?.....Our Summer University, “The DeWine Comedy” is the answer.

You will discover a new, incredible world, very close to Dante’s heaven, in our Tuscan paradise: medieval cities, beaches, lakes and a lot of other wonders!
In Florence you’ll be inspired by Dante’s words and you’ll have the opportunity to visit the places and meet the people of “The Divine Comedy”.
You’ll spend a week in Florence, “The cradle of the Renaissance”, the city of Michelangelo, Giotto, Dante and many others and you’ll visit the romantic surrounding hills.
Immersed in the Tuscan countryside, you will learn how to cook traditional Italian food, and on the edge of a charming lake, you’ll live your “midsummer night’s dream” dancing under the moon light…But be aware!!
When the sun goes down the” devils” will come to visit you on the dance floor, making our parties the “hell” you’re looking for!!!
The Tuscan dream does not end in Florence as you will move on to Siena, famous all over the world for the "Palio": a horse race held in Piazza del Campo twice a year since the 16th century.
During your stay in Siena you will visit all of its typical landmarks, experience Contrada’s life and its traditions:the perfect opportunity to relive a medieval atmosphere in the XXI century
You will be able to understand the “culture of wine”; in the Castle of San Gimignano, surrounded by the tuscan countryside, you will experience wine and oil tasting……and at night parties and tradition Tuscan barbeque.
You will wake up from your dream in the Wild Maremma, the land of “Butteri”, tradional "Tuscan Cow Boys".
You will stay in Castiglione della Pescaia, where its sandy beaches and the blue Mediterranean sea collide.
You will discover the Tuscan Archipelago by boat, swim, sunbathe and relax before coming back home surrounded by the crazy Aegee staff.
What are you looking for???
Enjoy the “Bella Vita” with us!!!
