In this series of two videos, Live Lingua Italian teacher Luisa guides us through many of the most famous Italian monuments. She pronounces them and walks you through how to say their names, tying them into useful Italian sentences that you can use on your trip to Italy.
Her Italian phrasing is accompanied by English translation, making memorization a breeze. Luisa also runs through tips for visiting the monuments including cost, appropriate dress, and how to beat the crowds.

Once you’ve had a chance to work through the first video, continue on to this next one:
Before you head to Italy, take the time to research basic phrases, questions, and vocabulary. Even a small bit of the Italian language and knowledge of customs and traditions will make the trip more enjoyable and interactive.
As you learn to speak, read, and hopefully even write in Italian, you will find yourself more engaged with what is happening around you and able to pick up on small subtleties that otherwise would have passed you by.
