Located just 20 miles south of Naples, Sorrento is the gateway to the Amalfi Coast and can be described as a paradise by the sea. Whether you’re looking to catch the train to Rome, or take a ferry out to the Islands of Capri and Ischia, Sorrento’s location in the temperate Mediterranean climate makes it a desirable year round destination for exploring Italian culture.
Coastal Mountain Town
The city of Sorrento is situated between the sea and the mountains, providing plenty of opportunities for swimming in the blue-green waters or hiking through the lush hills. Trek through the abundant lemon, orange, and olive groves as well!
The Sant’Anna Institute has a robust offering of Italian language courses to meet you at any level. Not only can you expand your Italian language and history, but you will also have the opportunity to take unique courses in the Natural Sciences, like Volcanology.
La Vida Local
Students are encouraged to get involved within the local community through a group beach clean up day as well as through several other service-learning opportunities.
