My week with Sira in Sarzana was more than I’d hoped for.

She is a welcoming and considerate host. I always felt relaxed with her and her lovely friends and learned so much just sitting round the table with them. As well as being a good host Sira is a great tour guide and an exceptional teacher. All the morning lessons were tailored to my needs and helped me build my confidence in Italian step by step with no judgement,  before I set off on my 3 week train journey through Italy.
Sira’s professionalism, adaptability ( plans were often changed because the weather was a little unpredictable in March/ beginning of April) and her enthusiasm made for a great week. Sarzana and its surrounding countryside and seascapes left me wanting to come back for more. The afternoons spent exploring opened up Liguria’s culture and history and being in areas without tourists was so refreshing. 
Sira has the ability to find common ground and find connections with her students and to make you feel at home. A joy!
A week well spent.
