Viajes lingüísticos a Italia: Aprende italiano viajando a Italia con un grupo reducido, aprendiendo de su cultura.

An ancient legend tells that Poseidon, angry at some Greek sailors who did not sanctify him enough, forced them to a shipwreck.They were passing through the eastern coast of Sicily and of all the troops only one, Teocles, reached the coast alive.When he returned to Greece, it didn’t take him long to convince his compatriots to move where he had been and where they founded Naxos, the city we know today as Taormina.

As an unique mixture of ancient stone, nature, myths and crystal water, since the 18th century Taormina was one of the privileged destinations for intellectuals and artists who started from a trip to Italy, to study the history of the world.
