In our experience, good cultural programme can increase the motivation of the participants and their satisfaction toward the project. We have experience in organizing cultural visits and activities in order to make the stay more pleasant and interculturally stimulating for the learners and staff.
Moreover, we can organize technical visits such as - to give an example - to the Ducati museum. Upon request, we organize cultural visits to some of the most beautiful Italian cities. Bologna is an important transportation hub and is at a short distance from Florence, Venice, Pisa and other major Italian cities. Depending on your needs and the size of a group, we organize cultural visits with a professional guide and headset with translations.
