Join Tutorino on a Class Trip...To Italy!

Don't just eat Italian, speak it - in Italy! Tutorino is taking a class trip to il Bel Paese and you're invited.

A great way to "prendere due piccioni con una fava" (kill two birds with one stone) - learn and practice Italian the best way possible (in a full-immersion setting), and see a side of Italy hardly anyone knows about.

We'll be going to Le Marche again this year, a region unspoilt by the ravages of mass tourism that many compare to Tuscany fifty years ago. Click for a gallery of last year's trip. And click here for a brochure.

Leave the planning and logistics to us. Let real Italians show you the real Italy. No tourist traps, no gouging, no crowds, no wandering around lost or struggling to cope with the language.

Nine days and eight nights of rustic chic relaxation. The best that nature and history have to offer. 100% authentically Italian (nothing generic, multi-national or globalized). Beauty you'll tell your friends about with a sigh. (Not to mention the food...) And come home speaking better Italian than you ever imagined possible.

I don't think it could have been much more perfect!


Cannot stop talking about it or telling people to visit.


very lovely setting. Nice early am walks before departing on another adventure

Italian definitely got better.

All choices of restaurants were excellent. Hotel San Claudio had excellent food so consider another dinner there. Really liked Galileo restaurant.

Loved the location, the rooms and the food!

great logisitics

Nicely organizzed. Saw lots of interesting things. Even when we had some extra time to wander around it gave a chance to engage local people or join into a local soccer (calcio) game

beautiful region to visit

good handout. well planned for the days activities. I liked listening to it on computer and lessons were fun (because the group was fun)

lezioni were well prepared.

Gatto and Volpe were superb. Bus drivers were nice and joined in on the beach, in the restaurants and talked to us professionally and were friendly. Schedule just right. I did not wish once that we were doing something else.The trip ran smoothly.

Favorite parts: group dynamics (loved the different personalities), impeccable logistics and authenticity of the region visited.

Nice area. good to get to know modern day and older day Italy. I liked it that they were not overrun by tourists and the locals seemed genuinely interested in us being there.

great albergo, liked the authenticity of the place.

Loved the hotel. Rooms, classrooms, setting. Perfect peaceful setting to start the day and come home to.

My Italian got better after Le Marche so I think that's a big thumbs up.

Every day Pino was perfectly planned. Enough alone time and group time. really, kudos to planning.

Stunning and enchanting.

The group was in good spirits and it was very pleasant to be on this trip.As soon as another trip is scheduled I will be very interested in going.

Well done guys!

The Best!
