Zuzana Valentovičová

Zuzana ´´I like doing different things, but I love teaching Italian. It is a beautiful language that has grown close to my heart. What´s more, it is spoken in a beautiful country, full of wine sun and amazing people. Italians think more through their heart that through their minds. They know how to enjoy life and how it ,,infect´´ the good mood to almost everyone. 

I started studying the Italian language right after high school. A wonderful vacation in Italy is to blame. I fell in love with it at first sight. So much that I decided to go study Italian in the college. I graduated and have been teaching and interpreting since then. I abolutely adore ,,fixed phrases´´. Through them you can see to the soul of the nation and that´s why I love using them while teaching. They not only enrich the vocabulary, but thanks to them, one has the opportunity to het to know the Italian mentality and culture better.

I still enjoy it, even after twenty years. It´s a real balm for my soul.

Day 2 ~ The miracle Fountain of Youth and Vitality

Experience a thermal spa with healing, rejuvenating and drinkable thermal water that unfolds in a natural oasis in the mountains. The beneficial effects of water have been used since time immemorial to improve wound healing, skin problems, gout and arthritis.

Pompeii and Napoli

Day 6 ~ A city where Sophia Loren was born  

Breakfast and what do we recommend as a program for today? Relax, enjoy the local atmosphere of the island or take a day trip to Pompeii and Naples. The program begins with a tour of Pompeii -the ancient Roman city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was buried and preserved under 7m of pyroclastic sediments during the massive eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. The nearly 2 and a half hour guided tour of Pompeii will give you a glimpse into the history and give you a clear idea of the unique beauty and significance of this Roman city.

After Pompeii by bus transfer we head to the city of all cities - Naples, to the Queen of Queens. A city that you may or may not fall in love with. Anyway, you have to experience it once in your life. A city of opposites, where you can really find everything - the best pizza in the world, huge chaos, but you will be happy to immerse yourself in it. A lot of mopeds, clothes lines above the heads, children playing in the street, the real spirit of the city in the Spanish Quarter, mystical corners of the courtyards, an elusive mixture of old and new, colorful and dark, noisy and mysteriously quiet. The city welcomes you with absolute love. What more could you wish for? A guided tour combined with an interpretation of the history and present of this town. The bus will take us to the centre of the city to St Charles Theatre and Piazza del Plebiscito , where there will be a one and a half hour stop for an individual walk with the possibility of visiting the Maschio Angioino Castle, the famous Umberto I commercial gallery or a glimpse of the famous Spanish Quarter.
