It's been a long time ago, around May1987, my wife and I became curious about a pamphlet which offered Italian courses, mixed with seminars in italian cooking, culture and history in Tuscany, this craddle of the Rennaissance.We were assigned a most charming independant villa 5 min walk further down, surrounded by its vinyards and a beautiful view over the hills of the area bathed in a magic light.. At first we apprehended spmehow the fact that most guests came from Germany, but it took us no time to find out they were a very pleasant, hiliarious company , some of them we stayed in touch for many years. The mornings were reserved for the well structured italian language course of different levels, as determined by a short entrance examination. The teachers were professional, helpful and friendly. so was the staff . The afternoons had different excursions, Siena, Lucca or San Gimignano or italian cooking. All in all, for a modest expenditure, we enjoyed one of our best and profitable vacation ever. .
