Study Abroad In

Florence, Italy

Florence, Italy

Florence is one of the most culturally sophisticated cities in all of Europe. It houses more original artwork than almost any other European city, and is called the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. The city is littered with museums, cathedrals, and piazzas,  and it's also a gastronome’s dream!

Located two hours north of Rome, Florence has a population of approximately 4 million and was briefly the capital of the Kingdom of Italy in 1865. Florence was long ruled by the Medici family, whose legacy has left a far-reaching impact on art, culture, history, and politics in this amazing city.

Our faculty-led program is run in conjunctions with CAPA International and is considered to be one of the premiere Study Abroad centers in Florence. It is located on the Piazza Galli-Tassi on the Via Pandolfini. The school is in the shadow of the Brunelleschi Dome and steps from Santa Croce.
