This program in Florence, Italy is a wonderful opportunity to live and study in the heart of Tuscany and experience some of the most significant art, historical and architectural treasures of Italy and the world. Feel the presence of Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli and Dante as you walk over the same stones tread by these giants of the Italian Renaissance which began in Florence and its environs. Walk daily though the narrow, cobble-stoned street lined with palaces and churches built by the architectural geniuses of the Middle ages and the Renaissance. View sculptures adorning outdoor walls and standing in the loggias of the grand piazzas. Experience continental life with the Florentines as you enjoy cappuccino and Panini in the street cafes.
