I've got a bit of time and money on my hands, so I'm thinking of spending a few weeks/months doing immersion Italian lessons over there. I've done some cursory browsing on language schools, but wariness about overly enthusiastic reviews makes me cautious. So I'm leaning towards lessons at an established institution, i.e. at a university rather than a private school.

Does anyone know of any university-based, short–medium term courses that might be worth looking into? I'm open minded about location, with a preference for low cost of living (but don't mind paying well for good lessons).

This has been my goal for years and years and years. Not the immersion in Italy, though that would be cool.

No, the being able to say "I've got a bit of time and money on my hands..." part!

If you wind up going, it would be interesting hearing of your experience.
