Staying with a family is an exciting experience. There is probably no better way to be immersed in the host culture than to share everyday life with a family. Living with a host family provides a direct introduction to Italian family life including the delights of Italian home cooking! We can arrange single or double rooms with half board (breakfast and dinner included) or breakfast only in one of our carefully selected families. Double rooms are for students travelling together only.

Our families are always very pleased to welcome you into their homes. We have a wide variety of families, not all of them couples with children. Some are young, some older, some single-parent families, and some widows. The latter especially enjoy the company of students, and will introduce you to the stream of visiting relatives.

Please note that you will not be entitled to cook or use the kitchen area - Bed and Breakfast in Homestay choice may not be extended for a duration of over 2 weeks.
