Accommodation and Cultural Excursions

Life in Brixen

Live in double rooms in a residence in the historical center of Brixen. You will be living right in the heart of the city with locals as your neighbours, and be able to walk to class each day. You will receive a total of 10 vouchers for lunch or dinner at a choice of selected local restaurants or trattorie. These are not student caféterias but great local eateries where you can sample regional culinary delights. Information will be given to you upon arrival with your vouchers showing you where all the restaurants are as well as explaining the special set menus that have been selected and arranged just for our students.

  • Visit to a brewery

Cultural Excursion to MILAN (2 DAYS)

Milan is considered Italy’s capital of chic, with its hundreds of places to visit, art to admire and food to devour.

In Milan, students will visit the refectory where the Leonardo da Vinci Last Supper is. This absolute masterpiece is undoubtedly Milan’s best-known attraction. The guided tour will also include a visit to the Duomo (incredible example of gothic cathedral), the Renaissance Sforzesco Castle with Michelangelo’s final, uncompleted sculpture, the Pietà Rondanini and the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana with paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio and Raffaello. Students will have free time to enjoy walking through the elegant streets of the city and indulge in some shopping in the fancy stores.

 Lunch and dinners are not included in the trip fee.
