Learn Italian in Venice

The city may often seem metaphorically drowned under a sea of tourists at the height of summer, and “Piazza San Marco” is often literally drowned during the flood tides, but with easy access to the artistic and historic heritage of this incredible city, you just have to fall in love with Venice.

The Italian language school is located in a traditional Venetian square, in the city centre, and is a meeting place for students and residents who shop or chat in the open-air cafés.

CESA Plus Points:

  • Wonderful central city location
  • Good quality courses, to meet both short and long term needs
  • A great budget “Evening Course” in the warmer months
  • Offering both group and private Art History courses
  • Ideal for all age groups, from 18 yrs of age through to business people


I thought the Italian lessons were brilliant, I really liked that there was a big focus on speaking the Italian language and for me the work load was just right. I though that all the teachers I came across were very good, determined to meet individual needs as well as needs of the class as a whole.

I thought that all the staff were very approachable, there was a very friendly atmosphere at the Italian language school in Venice.

One of the best parts was being able to meet other Italian language learners from all over the world and finding that we could communicate with each other in Italian.
