Traveling to discover new places, to know distant cultures and traditions, to make encounters… More and more i trips that we like are the experiential ones, the ones that, by making us feel something, manage to put us in in contact with the soul of the place that we are visiting and of the people who live there. Among the new trends, one of the most interesting is that of “Study holidays”. No, the summer English courses in England or Malta for middle and high school students have nothing to do with it.

Here are some suggestions to spend the next trip in a different way than usual.
