Language school: Lucca or Montepulciano?

Jump to last reply

My sweet husband gave me two weeks at a language school for 2014. I will likely go in May and am looking mainly at Lucca Italian School or Il Sasso (Montepulciano). I have several years of Italian lessons in the U.S. behind me and am hoping to work on conversation. As a third option, I am also considering Athena-It in Lanciano (Abruzzo). (I have visited Lanciano before and would compare it in some ways to Montepulciano.)

Any thoughts? My main concerns:

I will not have a car, so will I be bored in Montepulciano? Do students sometimes "carpool" for afternoon trips?

Will I have the opportunity to speak Italian in Lucca or Montepulciano, or will shopkeepers and others automatically switch to English? (In Lanciano, I heard no English in 4 days, so that is part of the appeal.)

Thanks for any insights or personal recommendations. I have not been to Lucca amd so am leaning slightly that way. However, I have stayed in Montepulciano and Lanciano and loved both of those towns and dreamed of returning.
