    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Catania is an Erasmus city, with sand beaches, lavarock beaches, the vulcano and a beautiful countryside.
    Selling excursions, you will have the benefit of testing some for free.
    Surely will learn the mediterranean lifestyle and eat well.
    There are some free italian courses around to emprouve the language. The boss dosn't speak any other language than italian so you will practise for sure.
    Hope to fulfill your requests and get some answers.
    Feel free to make questions.

    P.S. In case you are two people or a couple willing to share the same room, it is possible with a little budget for the second person (the workaway position is just one).
