Solemar Academy New 50+ Program

Published Lynne Farrugia on Wednesday, October 10, 2018

At Solemar Academy we never stop!  Summer has only just finished but we’ve been taking advantage of these first few days away from the beach to sit down and design the new teaching programmes for 2019. Our first new addition is the CLUB 50+ Programme, tailored exclusively for students aged 50 and above.

The program will run from 9 to 16 March 2019 and includes a standard Italian course and 5 leisure activities. It’s the complete package, combining both lessons and activities in which you can socialize, practice and discover the places, stories and flavours of the island.

Program:

March 9 and 10 are set aside for arrivals.

We begin the programme on Monday, March 11, with the first day of school and a tour of Cefalù with the academy’s director Valerio, our guide and storyteller.

On Tuesday, March 12, we will travel to the Abbey of Sant’Anastasia for a wine tasting.  The abbey is an enchanting place which is symbolic of the ancient passion of the Sicilians for grapes and their precious nectar. White, red, rosé… each to their own!

Wednesday, March 13 is going to be an opportunity to learn the secrets of Sicilian cuisine in the company of our resident chef, Maria. The cooking class will end with a final dinner, because if you want to see the very best side of the Italians, sit down with them around a table!

On Thursday, March 14 we will take a night-time tour of Palermo. The city has a thousand faces and is constantly evolving. We will pass together through the streets, alleys and squares of its immense historical centre and discover its greatest hidden treasures.

Friday, March 15th we will explore some of the most beautiful villages of the Madonie National Park on the Undiscovered Sicily tour. Our expert guide Dario knows the Madonie like the back of his hand and is ready to share all its secrets and delights with you.

On March 16 we will say our goodbyes and depart.

Cost:

The cost of the programme is 400€ plus an annual registration fee of 50€.
