Student Life


Between Sant’Anna Institute, Sorrento and the Amalfi coast, you will have an array of extra-curricular activities to participate in. Sorrento is wedged between the sea and the mountains which provides ample opportunity for swimming and hiking.

Every week, Sant'Anna organizes optional activities for all of its students including:

  • Gelato-Making and Cooking Classes
  • Italian Films
  • Language exchange partners
  • Italian conversation or phonetics lessons
  • Weekly lunches with SASL Faculty
  • Buffalo, wine, olive and limoncello factory tours
  • Snorkeling.


Sant'Anna study abroad students enjoy excursions as a part of their program (3 for semester students and 1 for summer students). Students can also participate in additional optional excursions.

These might include:

  • Capri
  • Amalfi Coast
  • Pompeii
  • Naples
  • Ischia
  • Paestum
  • Mount Vesuvius  


Students also have the opportunity to engage themselves in community service activities (i.e. cleaning up the local marina area). 

Please inquire about this opportunity before your arrival.
