L'Italiano Porticando organize weekly free afternoon activities. These activities are walks through the city, visits of palaces, royal residences and museums as well as excursions outside the city. Differently from what people may expect, the activities are not simple guided tours, but are since the school's foundation essential part of its teaching philosophy.
During the afternoon activities students will experience Turin and surroundings both from the point of view of a "professional" and from somebody born and grown up in this city. In this way our students will learn about real the Italian way of life and will practise what they have learnt at school in informal situations. The extra-curricular activities, aperitifs, lunches and dinners are ideal to meet people in Turin and to practise the Italian language also outside the classroom.
