Gap Year in Italy
Teaching English – in a school or private company – is a good place to start in Italy if you have a recognised TEFL qualification.
Or working at a hostel or campsite (mostly in the North) is a great way to spend the summer here. Manual jobs (picking olives and grapes) that don’t require language skills are often given to local people or immigrants, especially in areas of high unemployment. (But look out for notices of unpaid positions, which sometimes include free accommodation and food.)
