Prima tappa: Pisa! Coffee Break Italian Travel Diaries Episode 1

Welcome to this brand new series from Coffee Break Italian for intermediate learners. While it’s not so easy to travel right now, why not do some virtual travelling with us? Join Giulia and her friend Paolo as they travel by train through the beautiful region of Tuscany in Italy. In this first episode they have just arrived in Pisa and we’ll hear about their plans for their trip.

Travel Diaries will be published in one season of ten episodes weekly from 5th June. If you’d like to access lesson notes and a video version which features pauses after each sentence to allow you to practise your pronunciation, check out the full course on the Coffee Break Academy.

At Coffee Break Italian we provide content for beginners, intermediate and advanced learners, along with regular mini lessons on social media. Visit for all the information you need to build your confidence in Italian, whatever your level.

  1. Hi Mark and Francesca… I LOVE CBI. I am always listening to your podcasts and delighted to have found the ‘travel diaries’. I live in Triora in Liguria usually most of the time but travel between there and Edinburgh where I work and to see my children. Ironically, I hardly speak to anyone in Triora as it’s such a quiet village but really chipping away at learning Italian and the podcasts help immensely. I’ve signed up to your reading list also. Hope you are all well and many thanks for such a great learning platform.
