Can one take language classes in Italy without a student visa? During the 90 day stay or with an extended stay visa (which one applies for when already in the country)?
What if I just want to go travel a while with the possibility of settling down and taking classes?I heard no, but of course many people take language courses as a sort of "culteral immersion vacation" so why not?

Hello !
I don't see why you couldn't take language classes in italy. They aren't asking you for a visa. Best thing to do is to look for a language class once you are there.

It depends who's offering them. A regular university is not likely to admit you on a tourist visa, because THEY can get in trouble over it. Any private institution would be happy to teach you, I guess.
