Rome is beautiful throughout the year but it is even more beautiful when you can actually see the Trevi fountain rather than just a hoard of tourists. And this is exactly what visiting in September and October offers. Enjoy the eternal city like a local – explore Mercato dei Fiori, go gelato hunting and have some of the best pizzas of your life!

Close to the beach, Montpellier has beautiful French old-town charm and it also has the benefit of being in the centre of one of the best wine regions. Learning French in Montpellier will allow you to experience a young, dynamic city and if you choose homestay accommodation you will be having a true cultural immersion and leaving you plenty of change to spend on cheese. And wine.
