The Somerset College Cultural Immersion Tour to Italy is offered annually to Year 11 students of Italian. The purpose of the tour is to provide students with the opportunity to experience first-hand the Italian culture and language.

Students spend three to four weeks living with Italian host families and attending school, after which they spend approximately 12 days travelling around Italy, visiting cities such as Venice, Florence, Pisa and Rome.

The trip lasts for approximately five and a half weeks, and is followed six months later by the Italian Visit, during which the Italians who hosted our students in Italy visit Somerset College to complete the exchange.
