Belvedere Langhe, Italy: We aim to offer students not simple italian language courses or cooking courses but a real italian life experience! This idea comes out of our particular way to look at life as if were a trip. From every place you visit, you will take home a precious memory and stick it in your luggage. Language is a fundamental because it is the means to communicate and to learn, but it’s not enough on its own to make you fully understand a nation’s culture.

Excursions and Local Attractions
Langhe Valley and Roero - a wine region
Robust red wines and the world's finest truffle make Piedmont one of the best gourmet's destination. This drive goes along gentle roads, vineyard and medieval hilltop villages.
In fall, delicate mists give the hills an ethereal beauty and in summertime you can enjoy the walks around vineyards
Langhe...the name itself sounds wonderful. Truffle after truffle... vineyard after vineyard; the way goes to paradise or to the sea... far away from the image the people have of Piedmont.
Sightseeing is an obvious activity while in the Langhe given the many well restored medieval hill top towns within a short drive from Alba. Some of my favourite include Monforte d'Alba (charming piazza), La Morra (best view of valley), Serralunga d'Alba (pretty castle), Diano d'Alba (quaint with stunning views) and Grinzane Cavour (imposing/impressive castle).
