Discover the Italy you dreamt of, come to Apulia

Far away from the touristic and chaotic cities of Italy, there’s a region that’s still unknown…

Immerse yourself among the colours of Puglia…

In the summer, together with Trulli Italian School, live your study experience abroad in Italy with an authentic  summer programs in italy for college students. If you’re an undergraduate student between the ages of 19 and 24 you can register to our summer program which is comprised of  Italian lessons in the morning, as well as many cultural and sportive activities in the afternoon: wine tasting, bicycle tours, cooking lessons with grandma, boat tours, international parties, guided visits to the cities of art, evening outings and relaxing sunsets on the beach…


The best way to learn Italian is simply to live it. For this reason, we offer 20 hours of  Italian lessons weekly for international students, plus some lessons will be in real-life situations, (shopping in the town market, searching for treasure etc.), in order to make learning even more fun!
Even the tandem of  Italian coffee with the local youth, organised by our school, will be an excellent opportunity to practice Italian and get to know knew people. If you’re due to take university-exams in Italy, contact our staff!


The best part of a journey is to feel at home, abroad. In light of this, we’ve chosen to leave you some day free during the week, to explore Alberobello slowly and enjoy the “dolce vita” of the town. For instance, you’ll be able to go the seaside, stroll among Alberobello’s Trulli, buy your first gelato, relax in the swimming pools where you’re staying and meet your friends from the course for an aperitivo in the centre of town! 😉

Feel at home, feel a bit Italian…

Who loves this land more than us and can make you really live the local culture and beauty? We’ll visit an ancient homestead, (masseria), for a wine tasting or go on a boat trip around the marine caverns of Polignano a Mare. Together we’ll visit the Baroque city of Lecce, Matera, the most ancient city in the world, as well as Ostuni and Monopoli… we’ll cook alongside nonna, pedal through the countryside, enjoy relaxing afternoons at the seaside and evening-outings in the hot Apulian summer!


For your stay abroad in Italy, we offer a vast and flexible variety of accommodations, suited to your needs: single rooms, shared rooms, historical Trulli in the countryside or in the centre and hotel, just minutes away on foot from the school. Trulli Italian School will manage your booking and accommodation directly. For food, we offer you a half  board made up of the best food in Italy: ours! Homemade pasta, Apulian dishes and organic veggies straight from our vegetable garden!

For those staying in hotels further away (solely for 21 -years-olds and over) or there will be a transfert every morning which will take you to the centre.
