Study and live this summer in one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, Florence, Italy. Filled with amazing art, world class restaurants and breathtaking scenery, Florence is known as the birthplace of the Renaissance. During your Major course, choose to learn Italian, create a digital photo portfolio, cook like an Italian chef or become next season’s Versace. Our afternoon Florence activity highlights enable you to discover the workplaces of famous artisans, visit the workshop of a leather designer and appreciate the role of food in Italian culture.
