In these courses, you will be introduced to key aspects of all that is "sweet" in Italian culture. You will experience a taste of Italian history, art, food and cultural traditions… or you might just find yourself immersed in a natural thermal spa known for its healing waters. Sweet Life 50+ students come from all nations of the world to promote cultural integration, personal enrichment and to enjoy an experience in a multicultural environment.

The programme of the "La Dolce Vita" 50+ language course involves several art history guided visits and excursions around the cities with expert teachers. In addition, the participants will take part in culinary events, cultural exhibitions. And sweetest of all, they will taste typical cooking and excellent italian wines.

"I can highly recommend this course at Scuola Leonardo da Vinci, especially when traveling alone in Florence. La Dolce Vita program provides many appealing excursions and you will get to meet many people. Donatella, who is a teacher at the school and also the guide of the excursions, has a lot of experience, and is always ready to answer your questions. Many thanks to all for the unforgettable memories here in Florence.."

"I attended the school only for a week and, despite my advanced age, I felt like home and welcomed in my class. I almost grasped "the subjunctive" but I think for foreigners this will always be a real challenge. In the afternoon, during "La Dolce Vita" course, I enjoyed many interesting excursions in the areas around Milan. Specifically, I enjoyed the visit to the House of Rest of Verdi and the famous La Scala theater. All the teachers and people "behind the scenes" were friendly and helpful. I would recommend this course in order to learn Italian language and see the real Milan."

"I am very happy of my choice for this school and for the "La Dolce Vita" program. Every morning we had Italian lessons, while the afternoons were devoted to interesting activities on specific topics, such as olive oil, wine and cuisine of Siena. I can recommend this school with pleasure!"

"I liked the activities listed in the “Dolce Vita” course, so I enrolled. The additional activities have unveiled many aspects of Siena that I would not otherwise have discovered."

Italian Language Courses in Italy

About our Italian Courses

Senior students can decide to attend the Italian course for one or two weeks with a wide variety of starting dates. "La Dolce Vita" consists of 20 language lessons from Monday through Friday, in the morning from 9:00 – 12:15.

The afternoons are dedicated to museum and monument visits, excursions to the countryside, wine and olive oil tastings and much more.

The Italian culture and language Sweet Life courses for ages 50+ run three times a year in each of our Italian language schools: Florence, Milan, Rome and Siena.

Teaching Methods

We follow a communicative method: from the first day of lessons and at each ability level, only Italian is spoken in class. We put particular emphasis on spoken language and on communication, but also deal with the 4 base abilities (reading, writing, oral comprehension and speaking).

Lessons are interesting, interactive and also fun, organized in a relaxed atmosphere in which learning is done naturally. In addition, through the years Scuola Leonardo da Vinci has developed its own teaching method. 

All the programmes have been thought in order to reach your goals, independently from the duration of the course.
