A Typical Day in San Demetrio Corone

     A copy of the daily schedule will be given to students each week; the schedule will be presented and discussed and may be subject to change, upon students' and/or director's request or unexpected contingences.  The following is an example of a day spent in San Demetrio Corone:

7-8.30am: Breakfast
8.30am-1pm: Classes, Seminars and Lab
1-2pm: Lunch
2-4pm: Siesta/Studying
4-7:30pm: Activities or Excursion
7.30-8.30pm: Dinner
9pm-12am: Activities or free time

     Enjoy a delicious Italian breakfast, then head to class for engaging lessons in Italian language and culture. After class, attend a "real-life lab" where you’ll observe a local artisan and discuss his or her work and life. One of the advantages of a small town such as San Demetrio Corone is that people have the time and inclination to talk with you. You’ll interact with local inhabitants and then present a report in class.

     After a healthy Mediterranean lunch, the afternoon holds many options. There is free time for studying, perhaps a short ride to the beach or mountains to relax in beautiful natural surroundings, etc. After a dinner of more delicious local cuisine, students may relax at the piano bar, see a play, or enjoy an evening of poetry reading. On the weekends, go to the beach or visit some of the most spectacular sights and cities in Southern Italy.
