Studying in Florence
Florence, art capital of Italy and so much more, boasts hosting the second highest number of students who study abroad.
Few cities in the world have such a rich and varied character as Florence does.
Furthermore, Florence is the city of art, cradle of the Renaissance, where beauty is right on your doorstep. Indeed one tenth of all national artistic treasures are located right here.
But Florence is not only this, it is not an “open air museum” city, but rather it is a city full of life and things to discover.
Its food and cuisine are characterised by sobriety together with excellent wines, which come predominantly from the Chianti region. This region offers one of the most beautiful stretches of countryside in Italy that extends between Siena and Florence.
The variety of handmade crafts: fashion, goldsmiths on the Ponte Vecchio, the straw and leather production, restoration and antiques.
A cosmopolitan city yet at the same time it is on a human scale and so rich in possibilities in every field: with its historic cafés, modern pubs and discos, its various outdoor markets and one of the most prestigious orchestras in the world, the renowned Maggio Musicale Orchestra.
And still more: Florence is the city where the greatest national poet was born, Dante Alighieri, who wrote the Divine Comedy in volgare fiorentino or Florentine vernacular, thus laying the foundations for the birth of modern Italian.
Studying Italian at the Leonardo da Vinci School in Florence is not only about learning our beautiful language, but it is also about immersing oneself in a highly stimulating and rewarding socio-cultural environment, at a school which places the emphasis on pairing the language with culture and on making your language stay an unforgettable experience!
