Studying in Florence
Florence is the ideal city for a cultural stay or for temporarily studying or working; it is a medium-sized city with a historic center of unparalleled beauty. All over the world, the city is considered synonymous with art, excellence in craftsmanship, manufacturing and food and wine.
Less than two hours by train from Rome, Milan, Venice, it is a strategic place to know Italy and the Italian lifestyle. Considered an open-air museum, the city offers its residents and visitors a huge cultural, gastronomic and landscape panorama.
For sure you know that Florence is the homeland of Dante, father of the Italian language, and cradle of the Renaissance. In addition, both Opera and ice cream were born here and here the first Italian fashion show was held.
However, you should not expect a city closed in its past. Florence and Tuscany are not only tourism, art and history.
You will be embraced from the first moment by the pulsating life of the metropolitan city and the informal and international atmosphere. Foreigners appreciate the lifestyle that combines modernity and multiculturalism with tradition and sustainability. A famous travel magazine a few years ago declared the district of Borgo San Frediano the coolest district in the world, where Florentines and foreigners share different spaces and where next to small shops are the studios of Italian and foreign professionals. Moreover, the city remains at the top of the ranking of the most digital cities in Italy and many choose it as their second home to study or work in Italy.
Our mission is to welcome foreigners and cultural travelers who not only like to feel like guests of the city but want to live like locals and feel like citizens and ambassadors of Florence in the world.
An important part of this linguistic and cultural journey concerns the knowledge of the city, the territory, history and society. For this reason, in our courses we always bring authentic Italian language and culture to the classroom. And, for the same reason, we propose alongside the courses, a rich program of cultural and social activities designed and managed by teachers and partners, who are experienced in different aspects of Italian culture.
