leisure activities

mountainbikingThe picturesque villages, orchards and olive groves in the vicinity of Tropea are full of beautiful walks with an abundance of historical, cultural and natural attractions to captivate the visitor.

A mountain bike makes for an ideal mode of transport: you can bring your own from home or simply borrow them from the school free of charge (only a limited number are available).

During the week the school will also organise a variety of activities, parties, meals, coastal and inland excursions such as, for example, to the mountain village of Gerace or the Aspromonte National Park.

If you wish, we can hire you a car or a moped for your sight-seeing trips.


kultur3kultur2kultur1The geographical location and history of Tropea make it the perfect starting point for exploring the roots of Italy. Sites of interest in this respect are Reggio Calabria with its archaeological museum, the volcanic island of Stromboli with its still active volcano, and the culturally and historically fascinating city of Taormina on Sicily.

On one of the first evenings of the course we will show you a video to give you an impression of this area which is so rich in contrasts and which will certainly give you some ideas for sight-seeing trips.

The school also organises cookery courses ("The Secrets and Finesse of Southern Italian Cuisine") , wine tasting (information on the wine growing areas and types of grape), traditional and modern music evenings as well as water colouring courses (theory and practice).
