8. Cusco, Peru

In early April, Peruvian officials celebrated the reopening of this national treasure. Cusco possesses an interesting colonial history and the architecture from the diverse peoples that have populated the city still survives in and around town. While the elevation creates a cool environment, the warmth of the Peruvian people (and the alpaca sweaters!) will put Cusco at the top of your list. Learn Spanish in Cusco, Peru

We feel it is one of our most popular locations because of the unique culture and warm atmosphere in Salvador. A past participant once put it this way after attending Carnival: "In Rio, you can watch the carnival parades from the sidewalk, in Salvador you put on a mask and join in!"

Located in the heart of Tuscany, Florence has much to offer any traveler and even more to the language learner. Undoubtedly, the art and architecture here are some of the worlds best.
