Firenze (Florence), the capital of Tuscany, welcomes students with its wonderful Italian culture, art and food. Beautiful ancient buildings like Ponte Vecchio provide a stunning background for holiday snapshots as well as for the memories students take home. While shopping at the countless boutiques and stores, they will not only discover the latest Italian fashion but also have the chance to practise their Italian outside the classroom. Our school is housed in a beautiful 19th-century palazzo, facing Piazza della Repubblica, right in the very heart of Florence’s historic centre. A short walk leads the students to the cathedral square, the Duomo.
