One example of the kindness shown to us during our course was the day we were waiting (and waiting!) at a bus stop in Siracusa after lunch in a local caffè, when Arianna, the course coordinator passed by and stopped and gave us a lift back to our apartment in Ortigia.
It was her lunch break and she didn't have to spend it ferrying us home! Incidentally, she had recommended this wonderful caffè and several other excellent restaurants which were not listed in any guide books.
This personal warmth and kindness was extended to us by all the staff at The Italian Academy making our stay in Siracusa most enjoyable.
Thank you all once again for the kindness shown to us by each and every member of staff. You were all very friendly and helpful and it made the course very enjoyable.
