Centro Italiano Florence isn’t only a language school, but a cultural center for foreigners and Italians who want to create and share language, art and culture. From an initial idea of offering content related to Italian language and culture to foreign students, the need became clear to open a general Cultural Center, aimed at both Italians and foreigners, which offers learning opportunities, which can at the same time become professional opportunities. We have a staff of experts for every creative field, and we make the means and spaces available to anyone who wants to pursue a creative sociality, from language to art, from the crafts to photography, from video to digital graphics. Instruction is by professionals from a variety of creative fields: photographers, graphic designers, painters, sculptors, video makers and artisans, allowing us to offer a deeper knowledge of these various subjects, and also with a view to enhancing job opportunities.
Activities: Walking tours in the center of Florence, Visits to museums (eg, Palazzo Martelli, Accademia Gallery), Visits to churches (eg, Orsanmichele, Brancacci Chapel), Excursion on foot to Piazzale Michelangelo, Excursion to Fiesole (by public transport), Florence Gardens Tour (eg, Boboli, Bardini)
Housing: Centro Italiano offers exactly the right kind of accommodation to best enjoy your Florentine experience, selected according to your specific wishes and needs.
All our lodgings share the utmost attention to their quality, cleanliness and convenience. We personally manage and control each accommodation, and guarantee the full functionality of all essential services (water, heating, wi-fi etc).
