Italian Language Immersion in Florence
There is no limit to the treasures of Firenze, which many art lovers consider the most hallowed on earth. Piazza della Signoria, once the hub of Florence’s political machinations, remains a central reference point for visitors and citizens alike. Visitors can linger over a coffee in one of the square’s gilded cafés and admire the powerful hulk of Michelangelo’s David (a copy) guarding the city’s PalazzoVecchio, Florence’s town hall since 1322.
An array of sculptures, including Cellini’s Perseus brandishing the head of Medusa and Giambologna’s Rape of the Sabine Women, stand under the square’s loggia – an impressive overspill from the nearby Uffizi Gallery. The square’s landmark crenallated tower, the Torre d’Arnolfo, can be seen best from Piazzale Michelangelo – a balcony over Florence with spectacular views of terracotta roofs, the River Arno and Brunelleschi’s portly dome – all backed by the rolling hills of Chianti. It is the sight of a thousand picture postcards and Merchant Ivory film shots but it never fails to take your breath away.
The city is one of Italy's most pleasant, retaining the feel of the old medieval center that contributed so much to the cultural and political development of Europe. Culture in Florence extends far beyond the ancient buildings and sculptures. Florence can boast of its vigorous nightlife as well as countless festivals, fairs, and live performances for tourists and locals alike.
Our Italian immersion vacation allows you plenty of time to discover Florence.
