"I found l'Acanto and its charming teacher, purely by happenstance, for which good fortune I am eternally grateful. But this good fortune is compounded by the astonishing location of the school, in the spectacular old town, città vecchia, of Mesagne. Not a normal "tourist" location, Mesagne is heartstoppingly old time Italian. Inland by a half hour from Brindisi, the nearest sea port and airport, the town is IDEAL for those wishing not just to learn Italian, but to learn "Italians"."
