Leisure Programs

Enjoy your free time in Sardinia!

Visiting a new country is a great experience that you will remember for the rest of your life, so we want to make sure that you can enjoy your stay to the fullest. Of course, it’s not just about fun, as you’ll continue to improve your Italian at the same time. For this reason we recommend that you speak as much Italian as possible, even if you and your friends speak the same language. Spend some of your time talking with the team of Italiano in Riviera and, if you have decided to stay with your family, take advantage of this opportunity.

At Italiano in Riviera we offer a wide variety of activities to be carried out during your free time, so that, during your stay, you can know and benefit from everything that the beautiful island of Sardinia offers you.

Some of the activities included in our social program:

Free activities

City orientation tour

Every Monday, in correspondence with your first day of class, the school staff will accompany you to discover the wonderful city of Alghero. Along the way you will visit the most characteristic and significant monuments, and at the same time you will discover the origins and historical facts that have affected the city. In addition, you will be given all the information you need for your stay in Alghero, such as where to taste typical dishes of Sardinian cuisine.

Cinema at school

We organize for all our students the screening of Italian films with Italian subtitles, to train the language in a fun and enjoyable way.

Organized outing with the staff of Italiano in Riviera

One evening a week, Italiano in Riviera organizes an outing with the students to have an aperitif together at sunset or have dinner tasting tasty typical dishes, such as “Pizza al Metro”, Fainé (a dish of Genoese origin made with chickpea flour) or focaccia. But it doesn’t end there… the movida calls! The evening could go on, why not, until late at night in the clubs and bars of the city.

Excursion in the surroundings of Alghero

(for a minimum stay of 2 weeks)

Have you booked an Italian course of at least two weeks? That’s great!
We will then have the opportunity to meet one afternoon to move together on an excursion to discover sensational places such as the nuraghic village of Palmavera, the beach of the Torre del Porticciolo, the majestic cliff of Capo Caccia, or the enchanting view of Foradada Island.

Diploma awarding party

At the end of each course, we organize a small party to greet you, and give you the certificate of attendance to our courses. Music, laughter, anecdotes and sweets typical of Sardinia.

Presentations of books

In collaboration with several bookstores in the city, we offer our students the opportunity to attend the presentation of books by Italian authors, and take part in seminars on history and archaeology.
