LEARN ITALIAN - MADONIE AND NATURE
The purpose of this trip is to take suggestions and topics from the guided tours and to deepen them during the Italian lessons.
A different topic every day will let you know the area and the language.
It is a kind of cultural tandem with a modern and dynamic didactic approach. This guarantees you a unique journey.
Arrival in Palermo! Welcome and transfer to the CEA Serra Guarneri – Cefalù.
In the Madonie Park you live like a resident of the small village of Serra Guarneri, an environmentally friendly structure in the middle of the forest (1 km from the sea and about 6 km from the tourist center of Cefalù) far from the chaos of the city.
It is an authentic experience in a relaxed atmosphere and in a familiar environment, with shared rooms and times.
You are the protagonist of daily activities such as caring for the vegetable garden and the chickens.
