I had a great experience with this school, the teachers are great and very nice people. They have courses for all levels and they are easy to follow and useful. I did only 2 weeks of classes and it felt very helpful to learn Italian. You can also meet people from all over the world during the course. Cannot recommend enough. Plus it's a great plan to learn Italian in the mornings and go to the beach in the afternoons ;)

Großartige Sprachschule! Ich habe vier Wochen lang die Tiberius Sprachschule besucht und richtig tolle Sprachferien in Rimini verbracht. Rimini ist nicht nur eine Stadt in der viel los ist, sondern die auch kulturell viel bietet. Der Unterricht war sehr interessant und abwechslungsreich gestaltet. In der Kleingruppe hatten wir viel Spaß und haben viel gelernt. Die Schulleiterin Monica und die Lehrer sind alle sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Ich kann die Schule nur weiterempfehlen und werde auf jeden Fall wiederkommen.

Leider konnte ich nur 1 Woche in Rimini verbringen, ich hatte aber das große Glück, an der Schule mit Serena viel zu lernen. Serena ist eine wunderbare Lehrerin, mit Geduld und Freude habe ich dort eine Menge gelernt! Ich freue mich jetzt schon darauf, wiederzukommen.

Ich habe eine Woche bei der Tiberius School verbracht und einen Kurs 50+ gemacht. Es war einfach nur phantastisch. Ich habe noch nie in meinem Leben so viel italienisch gesprochen, natürlich mit Fehlern, die immer mit großer Toleranz verbessert wurden.Monica und Andrea haben mir mit großer Leidenschaft Rimini und andere Sehenswürdigkeiten gezeigt und sie haben mit hoher Kompetenz und Geduld mein Italienisch nach vorne gebracht.Natürlich komme ich wieder und freue mich jetzt schon auf diesen Aufenthalt.

Sono molto contento che ho studiato per due mesi al Tiberius. Questa è una scuola straordinaria. La direttrice della scuola Monica e tutti gli insegnanti sono amichevoli e vogliono di aiutare. Studiare non è noioso, con giochi, comunicazione attiva, guardare i film. La scuola ha un'atmosfera molto piacevole, come a casa.

Ottima scuola, ottimi insegnanti, sono felice di aver passato 4 bellissime settimane a Rimini, ho imparato tanto.

Gradara and Fiorenzuola di Focara:

The history of the Gradara Castle owes its fortune to the enviable position that makes it, since ancient times, a crossroads of traffic and people. Straddling between Marche and Romagna, it stands between a hill overlooking the Adriatic Sea and Marche’s valleys. During the Middle Ages, the fortress is one of the main theatres of the clashes between the Papacy and the Houses Marche and Romagna.

The Castle of San Leo:

The impregnable stronghold quoted by Dante in IV Canto of the Purgatory, hosts and collects various exhibitions related to its great and significant history: from the collection of weapons dating back to 1500 to those of the First and Second World Wars; from the instruments of torture to the replica of the fresco of Vasari which represents the taking of San Leo by the Medici family up to exhibitions of contemporary works. The Fortress of San Leo is mainly linked to the life of the famous magician and alchemist Giuseppe Balsamo, Count of Cagliostro, a mysterious and enigmatic “guest” of his prisons.

Ravenna: Dante’s last refuge

The city preserves the remains of Dante Alighieri and keeps his memory alive with important public manifestations. Ravenna is a city full of art and culture. It is the city of mosaics, an ancient city, elected capital three times: of the Western Roman Empire first, of the Gothic Kingdom under Theodoric then, and last of the Byzantine Empire in Europe. The magnificence of that period has left a great legacy of monuments: eight buildings have been declared Unesco World Heritage Site.


The course is available all year round and it can be customized according to the group's needs.
Prices vary according to the number of participants, the total days of lessons, and chosen activities.
