ACA's Florence program combines language study with opportunities to examine subjects from classical Italian art to the dynamics of international business. Your stay puts you in the heart of a legendary landscape, where you explore a historic region that is the very cornerstone of Italian culture.
Unlike ordinary international pre-college programs, ACA?s experience in Florence is not a homestay! Instead, it?s a residence program, accommodating students at the Hotel Albergo Firenze. This spectacular 14th-century building is located adjacent to the renowned Piazza Republica, but it has 21st-century style, featuring in-suite bathrooms, televisions, telephones, housekeeping and air conditioning. And being in the center of the city means famous attractions are right outside your front door. Of course, ACA?s staff live on-site, ensuring a safe, comfortable stay.
You?ll study at the highly respected Accademia Europea, an acclaimed international institution with state-of-the-art facilities. It hosts inspiring classes in Italian language and culture, art history and even international business. If you have artistic urges, catch the spirit of Michelangelo or da Vinci and try the studio drawing, fashion design, photography and sculpture courses!
Your time in Italy will be enhanced by exciting weekend adventures to spectacular nearby cities at no additional cost. You?ll make your way to these legendary sites via deluxe, modern motorcoaches. In whichever city we visit, rest assured that you?ll stay in safe, comfortable accommodations. As always, ACA staff are there to make sure every trip exceeds your expectations.Every weekend, you?ll visit great cities throughout Italy.
