In the Words of our Student Visitors

"The best compliment one can pay individuals is to say we want to come back. It felt like 'being with family'. I cannot express my appreciation without acknowledging the exceptional hospitality of Mina, Biagio, and all the residents of the Villa who opened their doors to us. I wish to thank you for a truly unique visit!! Now, the question is: when can I come back?"

"I was overwhelmed with the wonderful support I had from Mina and staff to enable me to maintain a gluten free diet. The food I was served was excellent throughout! Mina's staff really made my stay comfortable and memorable."

"Grazie mille! This is a beautiful place and the staff is so kind! My only regret is that we didn't have a longer program. I'd love to come and stay here again if I'm lucky enough to go on another Villa Vergiliana tour."

"The accommodations were wonderful as was the food & atmosphere. Everyone was so helpful. It was a most memorable event in my life!"
