Join the Summer University and visit:


Little known city with an interesting and varied historic heritage which is the core of a prosperous industrial powerhouse. Walking through the old town you will be drawn to the gems hidden among its narrow streets, the castle, the Roman forum, lots of charming squares and its lively arts scene and nightlife.

Garda Lake

"Do you know the land where the lemon-trees grow?" Praised by poets, intellectuals, divas and even dictators, thanks to its manifold character Lake Garda has been a popular tourist destination since ancient times. From north to south, you will be taken with its wind-ruffled waters, fjord-like banks, extravagant villas, picturesque villages, Roman remains, sea-like climate and gentle hills dotted with vines and olive trees.


Known as the city of love thanks to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Verona attracts tourists from all over the world. Mainly known for its grand Roman arena, one of the world's great opera venues, Verona has much to offer: Medieval castles, gothic tombs, lovely taverns and Piazza delle Erbe, the heart of the city where you will find exquisite souvenirs and local products.


Whatever you could say about Venice it will never be enough to describe its beauty! Particularly loved by sweethearts and artists, Venice is a true jewel built on a quiet lagoon, famous for hundreds of reasons, from the gondolas along its canals, its countless bridges and enchanting squares to its glamorous festivals, like the world-famous Carnival and the International Film Festival. Believe us, you will leave a piece of heart among the labyrinthine calli (streets) and its mysterious palaces!


A few kilometres (of hairpin bends) away from Brescia you will end up in a completely different world. Following quiet trails through meadows and woods you'll have the chance to admire breathtaking natural sceneries, jump into freezing mountain lakes, visit organic farms, cuddle the lovely animals that live up there and... you never know, every turn of the path might hide a big surprise!
