Autumn in Venice

You probably have been to Venice but if you are anything like me once is just not enough! Nor twice, three times or so on. 

For me 2019 will be the ninth autumn that the soggiorno Venice With Luisa has been living the wonders of this city. 

It`s not hard to become affectionate towards the people who have helped us to live like locals for those 16 days: artists, authors, jewellery makers, wine vendors; and the locals of our neighbourhood in the sestiere of San Polo. Add to that, residents of islands in the Venetian Lagoon who seem genuinely pleased to talk about their life, their work, and the realities of living this extraordinary island life.


October 16 – November 01

An experience in Venetianess.


Since 2011 we have been organizing a Venice soggiorno each October for 16 days of total immersion. 

It has become a yearly appointment, providing the students with an “insider” experience into life in Venice. Attending Italian language classes in the mornings; encountering local artisans for conversation; sharing Aperol at sunset; learning interesting history through walks with professional guides, or just wandering Venice`s calli e campi is a truly wonderful experience. It doesn`t get more Venetian than that.

Weekends we explore Venetian life on some of the islands in the Lagoon.


I'd love you to
