Dining During a Program at ICI
Lunch: Everyday a participant, or a team of participants, prepare lunch for everyone attending a program. As in any restaurant or professional setting, family meal is an important time to discuss strategy, trade ideas and relax amongst peers. Here, it is also one of the best and fondest remembered times of the entire experience especially considered that our participants come from virtually every country in the world!

Dinner is Included Every Night of Every Program
The finest restaurants in the region have been selected to ensure your utmost comfort and pleasure and particular attention has been given to afford participants with the perfect balance between engagements and leisure time. After all, whether it be savoring a glass of wine in a 500 year old castello or eating pizza with buffalo cheese from a wood burning hearth, Italy is most famous as the place where someone can do nothing in a thousand different ways!

Besides offering our participants (and ourselves) elegant, fun evenings, each restaurant on the itinerary has been chosen as examples of much of the philosophy that we discuss, and enact, everyday during the programs. We feel that a crucial part of the learning process is to experience Italian haute cuisine and traditional fare as patrons.

ALL MEALS WITH WINES ARE INCLUDED FOR EVERY PROGRAM, EVEN ON WEEKENDS

Free Time in Calabria
In our southern location, Soverato is a seaside city and a gathering place for surrounding towns. It is abounding with both artisan shops and Italy's most renown designers. It offers a vibrant nightlife of every character: pubs, dance clubs, wine bars, cafes and fine dining. Let us know when your coming and we'll check the football schedule as a game is an experience to remember...

The waters surrounding Calabria are pristine and perfect for swimming in summer and fall months and especially convenient since ICI is located on a bluff overlooking the crystal turquoise sea!!!

Free Time in Parma
Parma, our Northern Location, is one of Italy's most spectacular Cities of Art located in the heart of the Po Valley, just minutes from Bologna, Modena and Ferrara and close by to Milan, Bergamo, Verona, Cremona, Venice, Padua, Montova and so much more!

As a major city, Parma's location allows participants the opportunity to benefit from Italy's cultural treasures without having to travel far with a myriad of museums, food shrines, ancient churches and ruins dating back to ancient Rome. Parma is also home to one of Italy's most popular Series A football leagues.

Besides offering a break from our full immersion day Pranzo is an excellent time to trade ideas with participants in other courses at the institute that arrive from Italy, Europe, Asia and the Americas. Our "working lunch" includes wines from all regions of Italy

La Lanterna Rossa in Soverato, Calabria
Italian dining ambiance is a lesson in variety: simple fun as in the trattoria above or extreme elegance as the hall of San Domenico in Sicily below.

Very Fast Car
Cooking is not the only thing that's hot in Italy!
