Traveling abroad for authentic cultural experiences can sometimes be a challenge. However, there are still fun ways to practice your Italian language skills right in your own backyard. When it comes to living “la vita bella,” Los Angeles is full of Italian adventures just waiting to be had. This diverse city has many great museums, restaurants and entertainment options, which makes having memorable multicultural experiences easy to come by.

Here are 3 easy ways to have an Italian experience in L.A:

  • Food: The good life always starts and ends with food and LA has no shortage of exceptional authentic Italian restaurants. Practice you Italian while ordering a fabulous dish at one of Zagat’s Top 5 Italian Restaurants in L.A.
  • Art: Some of the greatest art masters came from Italy. Their work has been immortalized in museums all over the world, including The Getty Villa in Los Angeles. The museum was originally designed to model the Villa dei Papyri in the ancient Roman city of Herculaneum. Swing by for a peak at their collection of 44,000 Greek, Roman, and Etruscan antiquities dating from 6,500 BC to 400 AD.
  • Sightseeing: Venice Beach, California is a notorious beach town characterized by a network of canals that were modeled after its namesake in Italy. Practice your seaside resort vocabulary as you take a stroll down the beach boardwalk, work out at muscle beach, or take a dip in the ocean in this Italian inspired town.


For more, visit the Italian Cultural Institute of Los Angeles for information on other fun local Italian events. The institute regularly holds film screenings, wine tastings and family friendly events at various venues around town.

There is a group called Italiani all’Estero in new York. It is a meetup group for anyone who enjoys Italy, the culture, art and the language. The group offers a great opportunity to speak Italian and to meet others with an interest  in Italy. Members love to travel to Italy. When they aren’t traveling they get together to speak Italian.

This Meetup group is for people who speak some Italian already and would like to maintain/improve it by meeting others with varying skill levels. There are approximately 500 members of this group, although few can make it to each meeting, so gatherings are usually quite intimate. most of the group’s members are Italian expatriates and advanced Italian language speakers looking for an opportunity to speak this beautiful language and visit Italy.

While this group is principally located in Salt Lake City, Utah, anyone, anywhere is more than welcome to be part of it.

The main mission of the group is to foster an environment where those of Italian descent or just interested in all things Italian, can meetup and learn more about their ancestry, Italian culture, food, language, travel, etc.

Secondary to this is the goal of creating a new lodge of The Order Sons of Italy in America here in Utah. OSIA is the largest and oldest Italian-American organization in the country. OSIA is an amazing organization that does many things, from charity to Italian language courses, cooking classes to going on trips to Italy. Our hope is that we can create a very tight-knit group in Utah of those who are proud of their Italian heritage and/or just want to be involved with all things Italian – creating our own little Italy here in Utah.
