Questo corso degli Etruschi era fantastico! I loved our teacher Sarah, and all the information, and our trips to museums and archeological sites. I highly recommend this course.

It is my great pleasure to highly recommend Il Sasso school in Montepulciano. I have just completed 2 week-long courses one in Italian language and their new course on The Etruscans. Both were outstanding. Sara who taught the Etruscan one is fantastic and the program expertly shed lights on a lesser known civilisation with the right balance of talks and visits. Go, I guarantee you’ll have a great time.
