Ever wondered what the Colosseum or the leaning Tower of Pisa looks like in person? Or if Pizza tastes better in its country of origin? Our cultural Au Pair program is the perfect platform for you to be able to find out for yourself. We offer all young, bright and vibrant individuals an offer they cannot refuse. If you are taking a gap year after school or if you’re wanting to take a break after your studies, let us help you make the most of it. Learn a different language, do the eating part of "Eat, Pray, Love"! Find the passion the Italians are famous for! Our cultural Au Pair program runs for a duration of 6-12 weeks. We link you up with a friendly host family, so that you can get the authentic feel of Italy.

Why Au pair in Italy?

Italy is a must-visit country, and one of the most-travelled destinations in Europe—there are so many highlights in this beautiful country. The canals of Venice, the Tuscan wine lands, the cobblestone streets of Rome, the Arno river running through Florence, to the cliffs of Positano, and beyond.
