Ever dreamed about spending an entire month in Florence, heart and soul of the Renaissance? Now’s the time! Dive headlong into Florentine life, language and culture during this four-week stay in beautiful Firenze.

Parla Italiano? Attend Italian language classes on weekday mornings, then practice using those new skills while exploring Florence and Tuscany on group excursions and during ample free time. Buon appetito! Expand the coursework with optional cooking lessons to learn all about Tuscan cuisine; shop at a local market for ingredients, master the art of making pasta, and make a 4-course Italian meal. Miei amici. Enjoy the camaraderie of fellow travelers and faculty leader Ed Steidle when joining them for included lunches and dinners and socializing during pre-arranged get-togethers at charming local trattorias. Andiamo!
