Our Teen Center also offers a Teen Sponsorship program that makes the transition to Italy easier. Please reach out to the Aviano Teen Director, at DSN 314-632-7575, to receive an email with our sponsorship form. Once complete, reply back to the Director to be matched with an Aviano teen who shares similar interests.

While off base you can go sight-seeing, or you can take advantage of Italy's incredible shops and name-brand stores. The closest mall is in Portoguaro, but it is not your typical mall (it's much smaller). The best local place to go shopping is in Pordenone where there are hundreds of little shops and specialty stores. The buildings and products in Italy are different than those in the States, but it won't be long before you begin to appreciate their unique styles and products. You will love it!
One of the best things about being an American living in Italy is that you can enjoy both cultures and experience the best of both worlds. Get out and be adventuresome!
