"The Parla Presto annual trips to Italy are one of the highlights of my year. Director Isabella Perricone researches and meticulously plans these 10 day excursions, negotiates for the best prices and side trips, and succeeds every year in assembling a fascinating social and cultural adventure. This year's trip to Basilicata and to Polignano a Mare, was a tour de force. Matera, where we stayed in a renovated convent, learned of  thousands of years of the often devastating history of Basilicata, experimented with baking bread typical of the area, ate wonderful food, drank some great wines, explored a vineyard and exclaimed over bronze age ruins (and yes, we shopped) was breathtaking! The cast of characters, including old time travelers and some wonderful new additions, was a lively, diverse, and uniformly interesting and interested one. Our 4 days on  Polignano were a delightful "day at the beach"  with extraordinary vistas of two seas and old "Trulli" . "

"Another fabulous Parla Presto trip created by Isabella: Matera, a lovely antique city with a fascinating history, followed by Polignano, a picturesque seaside town with dramatic cliffs and emerald waters. And traveling with my fellow Parla Presto students and Isabella made it an even more memorable experience."
– J.W. in Cambridge

"Parla Presto’s annual trip is one of the highlights of our year. Each one is an incredible combination of touring, learning, and FUN! Isabella invariably chooses the most interesting places to visit and helps us to have the most interesting experiences there, ones that you will not find from even the best of Italian tour companies. Non vedo l’ora per il viaggio l’anno prossimo!"
