Sport activities on the beach and cultural activities at school to enjoy while learning Italian in Sicily and making new friends!
After the morning lessons have finished you can take part to our beach and cultural activities, according to the weekly social program*.
Beach Activities included in the fee (3 times per week)
In the early afternoon students will go to our partner beach village (only 15 or 25 minutes by bus)**. Our social program is aimed at introducing you to the two souls of Catanese sea.
On the South La Playa, with its soft and light sand and on the North the sea cliffs with their volcanic rocks and the intense blue water.
Our partner beach clubs are at 15/25 minutes by bus from the center of Catania. Normally we leave from piazza Alcalà to reach La Cucaracha village or Le Capannine in the South Playa zone, or we go to the North side where we reach the Aci Castello beach club or La Scivola, between Aci Castello and Aci Trezza.
These beach clubs are characterized by a young and cosy atmosphere, and you will enjoy a pleasant and amusing holiday.
Accompanied by one of our teachers, or provided with a free pass, the students can have access to the beach clubs for free, although some services, as sunbeds or beach umbrellas require an extra charge. The beach clubs offer bars and restaurants, showers, dressing rooms, animation, and it is also possible to join extra courses like windsurf, for instance.
