The school's headquarters on Elba are located at HOTEL TAMERICI, a pleasant 4 star hotel, in the residential part of Marciana Marina, with views to the sea on one side and Monte Capanne on the other. The beach, the beautiful beach walk and little harbour are at a 800 meter distance. Many students chose to stay at Hotel Tamerici or nearby hotels of various categories as well as apartments. As prices vary according to the season it is impossible to list them all but detailled offers will be sent once the exact course date is known. Many social activities are available, i.e. visits to the villas where Napoleon lived during his 11 months stay on Elba, trekking, boat excursions, wine tasting, etc. It is possible to start your classes on the Island of Elba and continue in Florence - or the other way round.
