The City

Built of lava and limestone, washed by the Ionian Sea, under Europe’s highest volcano, Catania’s baroque beauty earned this city of 300,000 a UNESCO World Heritage listing. As for the food—it’s not just pasta, pizza and pepperoni. Sicilian cuisine amazes with local fish, cheeses, wines and desserts that delight at every meal. Have a chat under the Elephant in Piazza Duomo, eat a cannoli and watch the people gesticulating just like in the movies—the dolce vita right here in Catania!

The School

The school has just moved into prestigious new premises on the top floor of a two-floor building with a wonderful wide terrace giving onto pink-tiled rooftops in the centre of Catania. The interior 420 square meters comprise six sunny, colorful classrooms, a reception area, staff room, self-access centre, exam centre and staff kitchen, all climate-controlled. The 800-square-metre outside terrace features a gnarly Sicilian olive tree.
