These facilities in various towns are located about 15 minutes away from Urbania by car (a coach service between Urbania and these towns can also be provided). These towns are of interest both historically and artistically and are nestled in the magnificent hilly countryside of the region. You will be sure to receive a warm welcome from the locals known for their hospitality. The historic centres of these towns have been well preserved and maintained, unchanged throughout the centuries. Groups staying in these outlying towns can take part in the language courses in Urbania, and in the afternoon can partake in musical, artistic or touristic activities in the outlying town.
In the evening one is able to participate in the various events in Urbania and its surrounding areas as well as in the various excursions to other major centres in the region. The school secretariat remains at your disposal regarding any questions about the region and what it has to offer.
The palace is a marvellous example of baroque architecture (XVII-XVIII centuries). The palace is three stories and also has a wonderful basement area ideally suited for rehearsals and concerts.
The ground and first floors comprise teaching studios perfectly suited for singing and instrumental practice.
