Take a break discover your apulian side
Sunsets with a glass of wine, walks through nature, wonderful farytale villages …
Beyond typical tourism
Welcome to the must complete study trip in Italy.
Trulli Italian School will take you in a truly Italian immersion program for Over50 in Puglia. The program will included Mini Group Italian lessons in the morning and daily activities in the afternoon: cooking class, wine tasting, tours in the most beautiful apulian cities, mozzarella making and other unique experiences organised by our school to learn Italian and fall in love with Puglia.
Change your point of view
The Italian course will be 20 lessons weekly (from 9.00 a.m. to 12.40 a.m.) in classes that don’t exceed 6 people, in order to conserve the quality of the lesson and never leave anybody behind.
However, a lesson can’t be enough, as to understand Italians properly one must live as they do. So, we have chosen to give you some “free day” during the week and enjoy la “dolce vita” like a real inhabitant in Alberobello. After all, what’s better than drinking a delicious cappuccino at the bar, reading the papers in the swimming pool or being on the beach?
What’s the Trulli Italian Experience?
This is not a normal italian course, it’s an experience, a truly experience in Puglia. The best way to learn Italian is to immerse yourself in the lives of the people, in their culture, in their beauty.
We will discover the Unesco Heritages Sites of Matera, European Capital of Culture 2019, we will visit the seaside villages of Polignano a Mare and Monopoli, the white pearl of Ostuni, along with the enchanting hamlets of Itria Valley (Locorotondo & Martina Franca) and other incredible locations, far way from tourism of the masses.
Also we will join the cooking with some of the locals, sit together, share old stories and learn from truly exceptional chef: Alberobello’s Nonna Maria. Or you will let yourself be inspired by the magical atmosphere of an Apulian homestead (masseria) and taste good local wine in a splendid vineyard and much more…
Relax…. you ‘re at home
In order to make your stay more pleasurable, we offer a vast and flexible variety of accommodations, adapted to your needs: single or shared rooms, Trulli in the countryside or 3 stars hotel just steps away from the school. Trulli Italian School will manage your booking directly, guaranteeing you the best price.

Best summer ever!
Learning Italian in Alberobello was amazing. I found a fantastic group of students and young, qualified teachers. This little school immediately embraced me as an old friend and I took part in many organised activities, improving my Italian...
The director of the school, Andrea, is the best. He welcomed us and followed us from day one, along with all the other tutors. The study trip was super-organised, with activities every afternoon, excursions, cooking lessons, wonderful days at the beach… and I made a lot of new friends! I know this holiday will remain in my heart...
Grazie per tutto Andrea!

Gli corsi sono durante la mattinata e sono bene organizzato. Più, Andrea, il direttore ti fa sentire ogni giorno come a la tua casa ! If you want to learn or discover italian, this school is definitely for you ! Grazie per tutto!...
