Welcome to Passoasud,

We are in Valle d’Itria, in Apulia, in the wonderful countryside of Cisternino, just a few kilometers away from Locorotondo and Martina Franca, places you will fall in love with.

I am Cinzia, founder and teacher of Passoasud, with the vocation for welcoming visitors and with the irresistibile passion for books, arts, food and for the details of Life.

Trulli are my home and they will be also yours when you are coming to visit us in Cisternino. Here you’ll find Peace, Beauty, Culture and maybe over time…Inspiration!

Passoasud is the ideal place for sustainable-ethical holidays and where to learn Italian language and culture with me. Moreover, during your stay, Apulia will gradually reveal to you its ancient soul and its joyful heart.

If you are a curious traveler like me, I invite you to take a look at our courses, offered in our website: www.passoasud.it

I also suggest you to listen to the testimonies of those who have already chosen us and lived an experience with us. So, you’ll find that learning at Passoasud, in Apulia is different!



Any course you choose to pursue, in our Trulli, you’ll feel at home, I will welcome you and I will be your teacher. I’m skilled in encouraging and facilitate learning a language, but we will also knead and cook together, or will read and tell stories in Italian. All this immersed in nature, in contact with the “Pugliesità”…What is it?

I’m pretty sure you are going to appreciate it: Apulia is a surprising and precious Land, it will fill you with unexpected encounters and with memories to come back to.

Italian is the language of “being together” and of “good food”, for me is the language of the “heart” and “welcome”.

After so many years of teaching, I discovered that, speaking Italian, or even try, easily connects people together, and sometimes, is forever.
