Free-time activities

Improve your Italian outside the classroom and discover Cagliari and south Sardinia with us!

We have a busy activity programme every week. Some of these are free to attend, such as a tour of Cagliari and film showings at the school. Others may run in conjunction with one of our third party providers who organise cultural excursions in Cagliari and south Sardinia.

There is something for all interests, from visits to ancient historic sites to trips to some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe! 

Sample activity programme:

  • Tour of Cagliari - You will be taken on a tour of Cagliari by a qualified tour guide who is part of our team, who will show you the places of historical and cultural interest as well as the best places to spend your free time.

  • Visit to Barumini / Nora - Barumini is a prehistoric village and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, while Nora is a Phoenician / Roman site. Both excursions include a guided tour. 

  • Visit to Argiolas winery - Sardinia produces some of the best wine in the world and its Cannanou is one of the reasons so many people in Sardinia live to be over 100! Go on a guided tour of the winery and sample its wine.

  • Visit to Villasimius / Chia - Words cannot do justice to these two fantastic areas of beaches, one (Chia) 1 hour west of Cagliari, the other (Villasimius) 1 hour east. Forget your cares and spend a day on a golden sandy beach, with crystal clear water under a clear blue sky!

  • Cooking lessons - Learn the secrets of Italian and Sardinian cuisine with cooking lessons by an experienced cook. And at the end of the lesson eat what you have made, accompanied by your teacher, your fellow students and some Sardinian wine!
