This was my second time at LIS, and I plan to return next year. The teachers and their methods are terrific. The morning classes are almost four hours long, but that time flies. My three weeks there definitely improved my Italian. I also took the one-week "Cook and Talk" course, which was outstanding. There were two fantastic cooking classes and... More

I spent a week at LIS in April 2015 and had a wonderful experience. They put together a programme for me where I spent four hours a day exploring Lucca with Laura, one of the teachers from the school. She was really terrific, and I not only improved my Italian conversation skills but had a lot of fun doing it.... More

I returned for a second time so it must be good! The new location just inside the Lucca city wall is more spacious that the previous location but the same friendly, helpful and inventive staff are there. All, or nearly all, communication is in Italian, including time outside the classroom. The school creates cultural and recreational activities outside the classroom... More

We spent four weeks at LIS from mid February to Mid March 2014. We found the quality of teaching in both small classes and one-to-one tuition to be consistently of a very high standard. This was enhanced by the welcoming and professional atmosphere of the school. We found that our existing level of Italian - beginner/ intermediate - was improved... More

I took a course several years ago. The staff was warm, hospitable, and very dedicated, even for a novice like me. The instruction was very helpful. The new facility is beautiful and well located. I recommend LIS unequivocally.

Last year was the second time that I returned to LIS with joy and pleasure and I was as happy as I was previous year. Guess what I am on my way this year in September as well. Lucca is a beautiful city to start with and this small school with super friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff is a gem... More

I had a wonderful time in Lucca, saw a lot of the surroundings and learnt a lot at LIS. I would recommend this course to everybody who would like to learn... More

If you are looking for a perfect experience of the Italian culture, at a reasonable rate, I would highly recommend taking the Speak and Cook Italian course at Lucca Italian School. Mornings were spent in a small group speaking/learning the Italian language with others at the same level. My teacher, Silvia made me feel at ease as I "stumbled" with... More

I've just returned from my 3rd stint at Lucca Italian School. Each time I've wondered if the experience can possibly measure up to the previous times and each time the answer is a resounding YES ! In fact, each time is better than ever. This year I again had fabulous instructors, both for class as well as for afternoon excursions.... More
