Yes, I recommend this program


My experience in Siracusa was amazing, I made a lot of friends and was able to evolve significantly in the language. I lived moments that i could only ever imagine in a beautiful city.
I learned so much about the italian culture and made native friends that treated me very well, I was also able to submerge in the culture of my international mates and learn about so many other cultures and lifestyles! I even managed to learn a bit of russian!
I would definitely recommend this experience as a gap year!
