"My time with Campus L'Infinito in Recanati was an amazing experience. The professors were very effective, creative and top notch. We had visiting professors come in to do specialized lessons with us....The school hosted many social events in different unique spots....The 'infinite' experiences package brings you on many trips to explore different cities with private tour guides from the school."
