No matter what the subject, there’s one thing that just can’t be missed in Italy… the food! Its gastronomy has to be one of the most imitated cuisines in the world, but nothing beats the authentic pizza, pasta and gelato from the traditional trattorias in Italy.

Whether you’re planning to visit the wealth of must-see visits in Rome, the winding waterways of the island city of Venice, or the stunning natural landscape and historical buildings in the Bay of Naples and Sicily; here at StudyLink we can create your perfect study trip to the country that’s known as Bel Paese (the beautiful country).
