There’s something a little mystical about Sorrento, Italy, a beautiful town hugging the cliffs that overlook a fishing port and Mt Vesuvius. Located just 20 miles south of Naples, Sorrento is known as the gateway to the Amalfi Coast. You’ll wake up every morning in this paradise by the sea, and you’ll study at the immensely popular Sant’Anna Institute. The Institute’s experiential learning model means classes will be fun and engaging. Dabble in learning Italian so you can chat with fellow travelers as you catch the train to Rome or the ferry to the Islands of Capri and Ischia.

- What an Experience.01/22/20
My experience with CIS Abroad was better than expected. The program I selected was called Semester on the Italian Coast- Sant'Anna Institute and this place became my home away from home. From the moment my plane landed I was helped in my transition into
the new and unfamiliar Italian culture. CIS was super supportive and active throughout my semester with hosting frequent cultural trips such as wine tasting, and welcome/farewell dinners, and cooking classes! How lovely! My adviser had a group chat with all of us in the program and kept in daily contact and was always there for us which was a nice surprise to me. It was reassuring to have someone to turn too and who was from the area in case I needed anything. Amazing program. Will always be an advocate for this oneread moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
- Semester of the Amalfi Coast10/02/19
Sorrento is a magical place with endless opportunities at your fingertips. It is a taste of Southern Italian culture in a small town where you feel like you've grown up there your whole life. Many people when they think about Italy they think of Rome
or Florence, but in my opinion the most beautiful and exciting place was right there on the Amalfi coast in Sorrento. I am so happy with my decision to take the leap and study abroad there, the coastal views were breathtaking, the food was amazing and learning Italian actually in Italy was a wonderful experience. I highly recommend Sorrento to anyone looking for a very immersive and comfortable small town to study in for a semester!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
- CIS Abroad - Semester on the Italian Coast09/15/19
In the fall of 2018, I realized I wanted to study abroad. So, after researching a few programs, I decided to study on the Amalfi Coast in Italy! I went through a program called CIS Abroad, who helped me to plan everything - from a basic packing list,
to information about the student Visa process, to financial planning! I loved Sorrento, where Sant'Anna Institute (the abroad school) was located, as it was a very authentic Italian experience; bigger cities such as Rome or Florence tend to be more high-density tourist attractions, which hinder traditional Italian culture. For the semester, I lived in a dorm located in the same building as my classrooms. Sant'Anna provided very safe and clean housing as well as access to kitchen spaces and balconies. The staff helped with any travel questions we had, and the teachers cared deeply about our success as students as well as young travelers.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
