Language learning and cultural activities

Florence is the best place to study Italian. It is the birthplace of the language itself and, therefore, the place where the language is the most pure. The city has an amazingly deep and rich artistic and cultural heritage and is less than an hour from towns such as Pisa, Arezzo, Siena, Lucca, San Gimignano, Pienza, Cortona, Volterra and the Tyrrhenian Sea coast. Florence is also famous for its cuisine, nightlife, parks and gardens, and fashion designers. Living with an Italian family provides many opportunities to experience the local culture and is an important part of your experience at the school, should you choose this option.
