Trip Report Trip Report: a Week at Italian School in Verona

Jump to last reply

I’ve recently returned from 8 fabulous nights in the Veneto region of Italy, on my second solo trip. This will be brief, but I wanted to share some highlights, particularly about my language school experience since it seems there are a few people here that take classes or are interested in doing so in the future.

I’ll also try not to gush TOO much, but it will be tough – this was probably one of my favorite trips ever, which is saying a lot considering I’ve never met a vacation I didn’t like.

BACKGROUND
Last year I spent a very enjoyable solo week taking an Italian class at Scuola Leonardo da Vinci in Rome. I've continued my Italian studies since then, so when I found myself again traveling solo to Italy, I knew I wanted to include a week at a language school.

I zeroed in on Verona rather randomly – I was able to find an almost-free reward-travel direct round-trip flight to Venice from my home airport PHL… so Venice it was!

The rub was that even though I had never been to Venice, I didn’t have a ton of interest in spending a week there. After a little research it seemed to me that Verona would be a good fit -- easy travel distance from Marco Polo Airport, a decent-sized city, the pics online looked lovely, and transportation connections were easy and plentiful with lots of potential day-trip options. I did have some initial concern that there wasn’t enough to see and do there for a week, but this was not an issue for me. In fact, there are still plenty of things on the “to-do list” for next time.

In the end, I booked 6 nights in Verona, including five days at a language school, and finished the trip with two nights in Venice.
