How does it work?

The school is intended to assist and help you to find the perfect lodging. If you need to find an accommodation in Florence and you don’t want to do it alone, we offer you different alternatives (independent apartment, family room, room in shared flat with other students, b&b, hotel, hostel). When you will have chosen we’ll put you in touch with the owner of the home, the hotel, or the real estate agent to work out the details and make the payment. The payment will not be made through italianme, but directly to the tenant or the hotel.

Only in the case of choosing a host family you may pay for accommodation along with the course.

 

What type of accommodation to choose? And where?

Florence is an average small town, but there are many people who come here from around the world, to learn the Italian language and learn about the rich cultural and artistic heritage of Tuscany. For this reason, the accommodation offer, in the center and outside the center, is varied. You can find a room for rent in a shared apartment with other students, b&b, families that offer rooms with breakfast or half board, apartments, hotels, hostels.

Living in the center or outside the center has its advantages and disadvantages. If you want to move around easily on foot, of course, the old town is the best solution. In 40 minutes you can walk  from one side of the city to another one, walking through the beautiful squares and alleys of the city. Restaurants, museums, shops, bars, coffee shops, some of the most beautiful squares in the world, are at your disposal. You have to consider that by living in the historical center, you will find many tourists. If you rent an accommodation outside the city center you can easily move with a bicycle (in part of the city there are bike paths) or by public transport: the public transportation lines arrive everywhere and are quite comfortable. To get to one of the Florentine districts that lie beyond the historic center (3/5 km) you will need about 15-20 minutes by bus. Of course the traveling time depends on the traffic! There you’ll find mostly locals, Italians or foreigners, and every kind of shop and service that might be useful. It is useful to know that moving away from the center costs for accommodation can be more profitable.

The choice depends on your needs!
We will do our best to recommend you the best option.
