Teaching English in Italy: At a Glance


Italy is often considered as one of the birthplaces of modern civilization. Home of the Roman Empire and the Vatican, Italy's artistic history is world famous with an indelible mark on culture which can still be felt today. Living and teaching in Italy allows you to explore this vast and varied country, from the business and fashion hub of Milan to the radiating beauty of Capri's grottos. Italy's valuable artistic history is world famous, and its influence is still apparent.


Italy is not all art and clothes: it is also home to Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati - perfect for any car enthusiast! If cars aren't your speed, the food and wine are world-renowned. With a selection of fresh fish, quality meats, pastas and cheeses, Italy is the perfect place for any foodie. So take a seat in a small café, raise your glass and prepare for all the exciting adventures that await you.

Rome has countless attractions: from the Coliseum, Mount Vesuvius, and the Trevi Fountain, to Lake Garda, and the Vatican. Florence's Uffizi Gallery is one of the oldest and most renowned art galleries in the world. Pompeii's excavation site and outdoor museum allows for an authentic glimpse into the day-to-day lives of Romans 2,000 years ago. Teaching in Italy also allows for visits to many other tourist destinations: Greece, Turkey, Switzerland, Croatia and France are all a short plane, train or ferry ride away.
