I attended the Venice Italian School for a week in October 2016. I was in the corsi intermedia and on the first day I was slightly nervous and apprehensive. Diego, Lucia and Jacopo made sure that I was comfortable with the course content and once I met my fellow classmates I knew that I had made the right decision by... More

I spent my Thanksgiving week in Venice studying Italian. I was so satisfied to see how the instructors were able to teach and see each individual student's level of the Italian language so quickly. They will guide you to learn Italian in the best way for you!!! See you soon :)

My stay for 2 weeks in Venice was greatly enhanced by the Venice Italian School. A few hours in the morning with a small group of people from other parts of the world made my trip much more than a tour, Diego Cattaneo and his sister Lucia hold the classes in a home in the center of the city. The... More

My wife and I recently completed two weeks of Italian language instruction at the Venice Italian School. The school consists of two classrooms on the ground floor of a house on the small Campo San Stin, right next to the well-known Frari Church in Venice's San Polo. We were pleased by the focus of the school on fitting the instruction... More

I took lessons from here for two wks back in Sept. The teachers are all very friendly, flexible and helpful, and they will listen to your needs very well. How you are allocated to the class and the pace of each lesson depend on the level of other students, but if you have some specific things you want to learn,... More

Two weeks of daily lessons took us from zero Italian to a position where we now feel confident launching into conversation in Italian - not English - in shops, bars, cafes or just on the street. Thanks to Diego, Marta, Lucia and Jacopo for getting us this far - such warm, fun, collaborative and engaging lessons! And thanks to the... More

I did a week of classes here and had a truly wonderful time. The teachers are excellent and I was so impressed at how much we got through in a short time. As a beginner, I really didn't expect to learn as much as I did. The school has a super friendly vibe and everyone is made to feel at... More

I just completed a 2 week course at Venice Italian School. About 3 years ago, I had taken some private lessons with Diego and wanted to go back to experience a course. The school is family-owned and small. That's a good thing for class size, which for my course averaged 5-6 people. One thing to consider if you've reached a... More

When I decided that I wanted to study Italian in Italy, I searched long and hard for a suitable school. In Scotland, there are few direct flights to Italy, so that narrowed down potential destinations. My friend and I have always loved Venice and the Venice Italian School seemed to meet our needs. The class sizes are small and the... More

Staying in San Polo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
