Centro Puccini

The Italian language school Centro Puccini is located in the seaside town Viareggio, in the heart of the Tuscan Riviera. Endless beaches with palm trees, shopping streets, and an exciting night life make Viareggio a popular holiday destination.
The school is located in a quiet but nevertheless central area of the town, just a few minutes from the popular market place and the beach. Centro Puccini offers a wide variety of courses held by highly qualified language teachers in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. In the afternoons and on the weekend our friendly school staff organizes a guided activity program which allows students to get to know each other better and exploring picturesque places.

The Italian courses are conceived with the idea of combining a beautiful holiday with a study vacation; a challenging program of study and some of the most beautiful beaches in Italy close to some of the most important historical cities in the world. It is the perfect place to combine study and vacation.
Students can choose between group courses, individual lessons or a combination of both. Persons who need to improve their knowledge of Italian for business can decide to attend our professional Italian courses and students interested in Italian cuisine will find special courses for their interests and hobbies. For senior students Centro Puccini offers a special course which combines language study with visits and excursions in the afternoons.
The school is an accredited center for the examination of the Italian Certificate Firenze and offers also preparation courses for the different Italian language exams.
Main emphasis of all lessons is the spoken language, which ensures that the constant encouragement in communication provides a natural way of learning Italian. Therefore theory and praxis soon become one and the progress is quick; in the advanced courses a higher emphasis is also placed on the written word.
