The school is a brisk 20 minute walk or a saunter of 30 minutes from the apartment. After a week I am beginning to recognize familiar faces on the way each morning. Here are a few pics about the location and interior of the school which is located inside of a grand palazzo.
The school is located about a 5 minute walk from Piazza Maggiore, the main piazza of Bologna. Locate the #5 on the map; the school is just to the top side of the red circle of the #5 on via Santo Stefano.
This week 2 students left (Great Britain and Finland) my class but we gained 3 new students in our class alone (Austrailia, Singapore & Holland). At pranzo (lunch) I met several other students who were newbies as well (New Mexico, Germany, Austria, Tokyo to name a few). People attend for many reasons; many for love of the language and country such as myself, some for work, some as part of erasmus https://www.topuniversities.com/student-info/studying-abroad/europes-erasmus-student-exchange-program. Come for the language, stay for the food (cibo) in Bologna!
