Viaggio a Napoli 2018

For the fourth Total Immersion Trip in September 2018, percorsoItaliano traveled to the unforgettable city of Napoli. There is no place like Napoli!

The city combines a majestic landscape—what some call the most beautiful bay in the world—with an intriguing blend of contradictions in its history, art, cuisine, and most importantly, its people, i napoletani.

We discovered an ancient, honorable city with a vibrant culture and exuberant street life. A minibus guided us through the greater Campania region on day trips, to discover more about the region’s history, art and cuisine. We took a boat excursion to admire the Bay of Napoli, the Costa Amalfitana and the islands of Procida, Capri and Ischia from the water.

COSA DICONO I NOSTRI STUDENTI 

This was a wonderful trip!!! Perfectly designed and a real language immersion.
The opportunity to meet and share homes and meals with locals was something most visitors do not get to do.
It was perfectly organized! There was not a moment of confusion or indirection. It’s hard to believe we were able to learn, see and do so much without a single complication! Unforgettable!

Best. Pizza. I. Have. Ever. Had! I am thankful with Roberta for giving us the opportunity to try this place out!

The personal time with the local Napoletano was the highlight of my trip! She was so generous to take us around town, telling us a story while walking through the city. I was able to talk to her about my own interests, ask her questions and both shared our taste in architecture... Unforgettable!
The highlight of my trip was the boat rides: circuit of Procida and Bay of Napoli. Dinner in the home of a native Napoletano, visit with artisans, watching pasta and cheese being made, visit and dinner at hilltop villa and vineyard.

The whole experience was absolutely wonderful and well worth it. It was a very meaningful trip and I felt I was able to really explore deeply into Italian culture... besides of the great improvement of the language, I felt surprisingly fluent and that to me was my biggest gain. Every activity was very fruitful regardless of my personal interests. I learned things I wasn’t expecting to learn and met meaningful people along the way... that is another major gain.
It was like being transported into a dream world. Every day I spoke and experienced each moment completely, without worrying about how I wd get somewhere, what I would eat or drink. I could — and Did — focus solely on speaking Italian and experiencing all that I could of Napoli. It was wonderful, true Immersion, grazie mille a Roberta!
I will give PercorsoItaliano a 20 star for the pre, during and post coordination of this trip. Beautifully designed!!!!
The people we met, artists, artisans, wine, olive, pasta and cheese producers, local cooks and hosts, guides, drivers were amazing in their hospitality and craftsmanship.
Roberta is a wonderful, caring, attentive, strict but sweet, elegant lead!!!!!
I would highly recommend this program to all Italian students!!!
Unlike a typical tour to Italy, the Total Immersion Trip allowed us to experience a deeper understanding of Napoli by exposing us to the culture, people, music, food, family-life, wine, language and art of the region. The program together with the sincerity and openness of the people we met along the way, allowed us to ‘begin’ to gain a rich understanding of Napoli and the region in a short period of time.
I absolutely loved every bit of it! My expectations were totally exceeded. I have spent the last 6 weeks traveling all over Italy and when I tell Italians about my experience in Napoli they almost don’t believe me. I think we were incredibly lucky to be shown such a deep and varied view of this ancient city.
Breathtaking! I could have spent a few more hours there! I feel so lucky I was able to experience such history! Forever in my heart.
Everything we did was wonderful and there was such a diversity of experiences. But I think what I’ll remember the most was the incredible people we met, and especially our guides, Anna and Michela. Having the opportunity to learn so much from these two brilliant Napolitane experts was an absolute joy.
