Study abroad and Italian language programs in Italy have traditionally focused on the popular cultural centers of Rome, Florence, Milan, and other cities in the north of Italy. Rarely have any programs offered the student an opportunity to experience the unique culture, customs and climate of southern Italy.
Sorrento is situated on the west coast of Italy, twenty miles south of the city of Naples, on the spectacular Sorrento Peninsula. Perched atop hundred foot cliffs that face the Gulf of Naples, Sorrento is within sight of rugged snow-capped mountains, emerald waters, black sand beaches, cliff-hanging villages, and the world’s best known volcano. Within easy reach of Sorrento are the stunning islands of Capri and Ischia, the Baroque splendor of Naples, the amazing Amalfi Coast, the majestic Greek temples at Paestum, the historic Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, and of course, Mount Vesuvius. The National Archaeological Museum in Naples houses perhaps the world’s greatest collection of Roman antiquities.
Sorrento is:
· A safe, walkable and picturesque center of international tourism with an international population
· A small town yet with a cosmopolitan feel
· Friendly, gracious people; southern hospitality, Italian style
· Elegant hotels and quaint, family-owned restaurants
· Bustling shopping streets and quiet, stone-paved alleyways
· A mild, sun-drenched Mediterranean climate
· Culinary traditions based on the fruit of the sea, and on locally grown produce
· Streets lined with lemon and orange tress; hillsides covered with olive groves and vineyards
· A meeting place for artists, writers, musicians, architects, philosophers, poets and religious figures from around the globe.
· Home to some of the best pizza and gelato you will find anywhere
· The ideal location for the adventurous student who would like to experience the ‘other Italy’.
